Stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it. The hotel is not your standard plastic fantastic experience and if you need a 42" flat screen to have fun, then go elsewhere. Yep the paint is chipped and the grout is not sparkling white, but the beds are comfortable, the room is warm and cozy and all the public areas are enjoyable. Reading a book in front of a roaring fire with a glass of wine....heaven. The breakfast was good too, unlimited serves. You can have a fry up if you want or there are plenty of other options although the pancakes were very very stodgy on our day. I didnt find the hotel noisy at all...perhaps because we stayed saturday night...less busy than a weekday.
