I reviewed this hotel just over a year ago. The rooms were pretty shabby and really below the standard to expect of even a budget hotel.
Well, what a difference a year makes! The hotel rooms are in a separate building a few metres from the restaurant, bar and reception. They're just finishing off a complete refurb of the rooms, so much so that it reeks of new paint and the decorators were still working in there. They've made a lovely job. New furniture, beds and accessories of good quality and tastefully done. They also now have quality shower gel and soap, and I'm very impressed.
The restaurant/bar is still the same, its decor is tired but ok and reasonably clean. The food is standard carvery quality, and is fine and of a reasonable price. They've also improved the breakfast with little touches like proper coffee and a little more choice. Still no cold meats, fresh fruit or yogurts, but they also have a cooked breakfast and all in all it's very good value for bed and breakfast.
They don't have many staff on, but I was there mid-week so maybe at busier times they have more on. Those they had were jacks and jills of all trades, but managed just fine.
It's a heritage building so access to all but one room in the hotel part is difficult for those with mobility issues, and there's no lift. Reception is only staffed until 10pm, but they do tell you that on booking.
All in all a nice reasonably priced hotel I'll be happy to stay there again.
