Very poor all round. Dirty, shabby, public areas stink of smoke which is a distraction from all the trip hazards. Lift had wall to wall nylon based green carpet. Horrible bucket by entrance full of cigarettes and packets with groups of smoking creating a cloud of smoke. No car park to speak of. Signs left up which are clearly years... More

Where to start! On arrival the receptionist was very brusque, more concerned with the young girl in the office behind. No warm greetings or smiles. There was obviously a mix up in rooms as we were kept waiting for at least 5 minutes with no explanation at all. Health and safety is obviously an issue at this hotel. There are... More

Came here for 1 night on last Saturday - from checking in it was terrible! The lady on reception was very rude and not helpful towards our group. We asked what time breakfast was , and even though she had not told us, her reply was 'I've already told you'. We didn't feel welcome or as though she wasn't bothered... More

Ok from outside, dirty smells,torn carpet dated. Would not stay again. Came with travel group WTT. Blaming WTT for booking this hotel. With knowledge of rating. Front desk employee very rude. Check out reviews before booking. Bikers camping near by. That would have been better option.

Must have been lucky and given a refurbished room which was a reasonable size, clean and the bathroom was modern. No wifi in room. Was very average and felt more like a b&b than a hotel. The food was typical mass catering fayre and adequate for one night.

Where to start, poor room, poor decor , poor food! Room as small, decor tired and shabby had paper coming off ceiling, punch mark in bathroom door ! although it was clean, the shower was on a sloping wall so , if your tall or not skinny you'd have a problem. Carpets in halls threadbare, lift mechanics cover left open,... More

Rooms dirty, beds moist, a stench of mildew and bugs in en bathroom. The prices are hefty. We went as family of four and had two rooms. One room was ok, the other a plain disaster. The worst I have stayed in. Ever. Avoid.

The room was fine, just tired. It just desperately needs updating. There is an elevator, but an employee insisted we carry our 3 last large suitcases up several flights of stairs. I would recommend that be changed. The breakfast was good. The lobby/large space off of has wifi and was a nice place to sit.
