“Clean and functional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

For a business trip this Hotel ticked all the boxes except one. No wi fi in the bedrooms. I used my phone as a hot spot but in this day and age I really would expect a Hotel of this size to have wi fi in the rooms as well as the public areas.
Apart from that minor niggle my room was spotless, quiet and comfortable. Everything worked and the staff were pleasant and helpful. (Carrying bag upstairs).
Right opposite the station and easy walking access to town centre. Breakfast was fresh and there was plenty of it. For the price I would definitely stay again.

The hotel gives the impression of having just had a major shake-up: new staff, new chef, refurbishment going on etc. Sadly the Thai cuisine is no longer available but that said, I could not fault the hotel - the staff were polite, attentive and efficient and the room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Cannot judge the restaurant as we ate out, but the breakfast was excellent. Will definitely stay again when in the area. I heard no undue noise from outside, and the location is ideal for the station.

Location and accommodation were excellent to relax and explore the country side. Walking distance to the Station, many shops, cafes and restaurants. Supremely comfortable beds, spacious, quiet and stylish room with friendly helpful staff. Fast internet was very useful. Would definitely stay again.

the service was poor and the rooms average. better stay in premier inn than here...I chose the hotel for the location, which is very central and made it very easy for us to visit the family. The staff couldn't care less about what we needed or the quality of our sleep( we are disturbed a few times a night by the noise outside)

Stayed here recently for 2 nights - whilst the hotel is not bad, the room we stayed in was very noisy due to cars outside and the train station opposite. Both nights we were awoken by people arguing in the street outside our room (first floor) since the windows are single glazed and don't soundproof. The food in the restaurant is good along with breakfast and they have some nice beers on, and the hotel offers free wifi in the bar, restaurant and foyer. Overall, it was ok but certainly not great.

Booked hotel at 17.30 on the day before my visit but due to illness had to cancel at 8am on day of booking. Hotel insisted on 100% cancellation on a booking that they had only had for a few hours.
I know it is in their small print but I think this is a very short sighted policy.
Will not be staying there again ( I've stayed times in the past).

Stayed here for business and wasn't in the hotel much. Nothing much to say, clean and did the job. Breakfast was a bit sparse with the cooked side although plenty of choice. Would stay again when in the area.
