I've stayed here a few times now whilst working nearby.
It's a great little hotel, but the quality of your stay does depend on the room that you get. On my 1st stay, we were in what I can only class as the 'old' part of the hotel, up several flights of stairs by the bar area. The room was about average, it was clean, but just a standard hotel room and a bit 'worn'.
On my 2nd stay, I was put into a 'Suite' room, close to the back of the hotel which was a world apart, it was a lovely big room, immaculate bathroom, massive bed and much more modern. I'd definitely try and opt to stay in this room if I return in the future!
I've eaten here on both occasions, the evening meals are good, and not badly priced. I found the bar wasn't always staffed though, and I had to hunt down a staff member to get a drink on occasions. Breakfast is the standard cold/cooked breakfast affair, but we found on weekends this was replaced with a requirement to order breakfast via a waitress.
The internet connection (not complimentary) wasn't great. I needed to upload some large files (100MB+) and it took a fair few hours, ended up leaving the laptop on overnight.
Overall for the price it's a good hotel, and a comfortable nights stay.
Try and get a room in the 'Suites' towards the back of the hotel, these are much nicer than...

Thank you for your very interesting feedback, it is great to read such an informative response giving me and fellow readers a reflective understanding of the hotel from the prospective of a well-travelled guest. I thank you for emphasising the quality of our food and reiterating our menus are priced at a competitive rate.
I appreciate your frustration at the speed of internet, normally the access speed is comparable to other local hotels however on extremely busy midweek nights due to peak demand the system can struggle with download times. We are scheduled to have some upgrade work done in the New Year which will bring on line the latest technology within the hotel sector.
Once again I thank you for your response and very much look forward to welcoming you back In the near future.
