The hotel is situated in a central location for shopping and the HUB was in a short walking distance for restaurants. We were upgraded to an executive room which was very well appointed. The room was clean, quiet and modern. The hotel pool was lovely for an evening swim. Breakfast was very good, with a vast assortment of cooked and... More

I stay in a lot of HI and HIX across the UK every week and this is disappointing. For the first time ever, I've had to pay for parking externally as the hotel car park was full - I double checked with reception this was what I needed to do. Room basic, very warm even with the (extremely loud) a/c... More

Serviceable hotel with restaurant, pool, and workout facilities. Staff are friendly, rooms are decent. One of the better options in the immediate area compared to the competition. If you're looking for a late night drink and think the bar is closed the person working the front desk will get it for you. Have stayed here multiple times over the years... More

I have visited this hotel many times, mainly for business meetings and the staff continue to provide excellent service with a friendly smile! Tony, Sara & Jane especially. Food is good too. Wish there were more parking spaces though!
