The hotel looks like it has been refurbished but it was obviously done by the lowest price contractor. Paint splashes on the skirting, tired furniture and fittings hanging from the wall. Breakfast was the minimum possible with no fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, waffles etc. The floor was dirty, plates were cold, we had to ask for coffee, the floor was... More

The room was fine and the hotel served its purpose, but the restaurant can only be described as bad and overpriced. Think cremated chicken, dry pizza, plain tomato sauce on overcooked soggy pasta for an average price of £12-13. It was like going back 20 years in terms of food standards. They did serve burgers on a slate with a... More

Due to roadworks on and off the motorway this place was difficult to get to at night as the roads are poorly lit until you get to the hotel itself where you are blinded by a floodlight when you enter the car park and head left for parking, beware!!! Although the rooms are tired, check in was smooth (request a... More

Me & my two friends visited here for two nights, as holiday inns always have comfy beds! The room was clean, comfy and spacious. The only problem was outside the window there was alot of loud tapping that we didn't know what it was, so it kept us awake abit. The air conditioning doesn't really work so the room was... More

We stopped over in the hotel for a night. The hotel is out of town, next to a busy road, and seems popular with business men and ladies. The room was old but adequate. The breakfast was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.
