“Fantastic for a cheap hotel, very clean, lovely staff, cosy & great breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Stayed here as a family of four + pooch, middle of April 2013. Weather was still cold but the Hotel room was really cosy. I'd packed thermals after reading other reviews but didn't need them as we never felt cold in the Hotel. Our stay was very quiet even though Hotel was busy. The staff are really helpful, very attentive and always had a lovely smile. Whilst the hotel is dated it remains excellent value for money and the breakfasts are great. The Conservatory is lovely (relatively new) and evening meals served there were great value. The draught beer (we had San Miguel I think) was really nice, well served and excellent value. Would go back again for a cheap break. There is a nice park next door and, whilst a lot of the rooms overlook terraced properties, we didn't go there to gaze out of the windows. All in all, felt it was very good value and it is lovely that the Staff are so helpful and happy. Even though we weren't asked to, we changed into outdoor/indoor shoes in the car park and wiped the dogs feet so we didn't cause any extra work for the busy cleaners. Swimming pool was OK but does look a little tired. Keep up the good work and thank you for a pleasant stay.

We have just returned from green gables 11/4/2013 after a two night break. The staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble for them. The facilities are a little dated ie new bats and cues would be great... But it didn't take anything away from the fact that if you didn't want to walk into town there was enough to keep my 13 yr girl amused and occupied. The drink prices are reasonable. Location is about 15-20 min walk into town. The rooms do what you would expect clean but simple. Overall a great stay would return very soon.

Excellent value and atmosphere. Stayed in self catering apartment excellent value. Yes its dated but spotlessly clean and staff can't do enough for you. Friendly; warm and homely. Daughter aged 4 loved it everything safe and lots of child friendly activities. Couldn't ask for me - a big well done to all of the staff.

We stayed for a weekend as part of a large educatinalgroup.Snowing with bitterly cold winds outside. This hotel is Victorian so the ceilings are very high and the heating could not keep up.My friend went to the lectures wrapped in a duvet! Luckily my room, U3,was small compared to most and was warm (still had to steal the duvet from the other bed though) my friends were given fan heaters so slept better the second night. The hotel is SPOTLESSLY clean. There seems to be miles of corridors so a gold medal to the person who dusts the skirting boards! Cooked breakfast really good and the scrambled egg better than any 5* I've been in. Evening fare - schools meals standard,edible and filling don't expect haute cuisine! All round it's cheap and cheerful, great for families and groups. Just pack a few more jumpers than I did!!

sorry you found the building cold we do try our best to keep the building warm but sometimes the aggresive easterly winds are just too much for certain areas of the building.

We ve been here before but never done a review. Read some reviews on here and can't believe people complaining.. Nice breakie, friendly helpful staff the place is spotless, yes it's not the ritz but they aren't ritz prices. Great location not been on the east coast for about 5 years and we will be back here, we all had a great time.

Certainly is a budget hotel but if you're looking for a cheap stay with a bed, a bathroom and hearty meals for a great price this is your ticket. Hard to review as it is - I suppose - really for schools and large amounts of tourists but all in all, nothing special at all but does what it's supposed to. Swimming pool and vending machines were a nice touch! 5 minute walk to centre of town and 3 minute walk to station was always handy. Don't go expecting claridges, but cheap beds, a view across a rather grotty estate and hearty food.

I would like to clarify that it is a 15minute walk to the station and 20 mins at least to the town centre. We have never considered ourselves to be on a parr with claridges or the ritz and am sorry if we misled you into thinking we are.

Over New yr I stayed with my wife and grandson,there was a large group of youths staying at same time they took over all lounges, games rooms ,etc and we could not use them for eqipment and meetings ,reception was like a shoe dump and we had to try to get passed them every day,at times the pool was made out of bounds except for the group staff did not seem to mind them taking over the place and football and basketball on car park ,fine If thats what they want but maybe they could let others know what to expect so they can choose wether to book or not I did fill in an appraisal form but never got an answer I did post an on line review but It seems to of got lost , I see the management comment on this site maybe I will get a response this time SGC Cheshire

Sorry you felt pushed out by the group staying in the hotel whilst you were staying in one of our self catering apartments. We felt the pool was still available for general use for most of the day and only booked for short periods within in the 8am to 10pm opening times. I am sorry the games room was taken over I felt there was still opportunity for guests staying in the apartments to use it. The ground floor lounges and conservatory would not normally be available to those staying in the apartments. We will certainly bear in mind where ever possible to keep guests informed of others using the facilities in future.
