I only stayed one night and did not leave the hotel so I cannot comment on the area. This hotel has the potential to be very good. Generally the decor was very good. The receptionist was very efficient. The room was a good size with a very good shower. I am not sure how the ceiling heating will work on a cold day The appearance was spoilt by cobwebs on the desk light and the start of mould in the bathroom. The evening meal was reasonably priced. The italian themed restaurant did very well on the Italian main dishes and anti-pasta. I chose rib eye steak and hand cut chips for the main. The hand cut chips looked like reconstituted potato to me and they were very salty. The puddings all seemed to be of the mass produced variety.
In the bar two of the five draft beers were off.
Breakfast was good, unusually the hot dish was served to the table by a waiter. A nice change from the normal buffet.
My colleague was in a room in the annex which seemed quite a walk away, he got cold and wet, and smaller than mine.
