Stayed one night, the staff are very friendly and helpful, having said that the whole hotel is looking a little down at heel, the room was adequate and the bed comfortable but various items didn't work ie the hot tap virtually needed a set of pliers to operate and the soap dispenser on the shower/bath came off in my hand....

Attended a wedding here. There's not much to say other than it is in desperate need of a refurb, staff need more training in the art of efficiency and customer service and tiny bar on the right as you enter either needs to be binned off completely or moved. It's better used as a cloakroom. I can see this is... More

Dear Christine, Many thanks for sharing your comments with us, we value all feedback. We are currently undertaking some updating and refreshing work around the building in some areas, however we appreciate your comments. Breakfast can be busy at times hence why we operate on a traffic light system, we always try and indicate which times to avoid if possible.... More

Recently stayed at this hotel for a function. On arrival it looks old and run down. The room we were given hadn't been cleaned after the previous occupant, went downstairs to request a new room, after being looked at as if i was mad and an inconvenience, was told that nothing could be done and that the room I was...

I imagine that Holiday Inn management jettisoned this little hotel because they felt that it was not worth spending money on - although when we were there last night the car park was quite full and the restaurant at breakfast was doing brisk business so it obviously gets people in. It's a pity because the rooms are nice enough although... More

Used this hotel as a base for a large family party. Guests coming from far and wide. Wasn't expecting palatial rooms, just clean. Cleanliness wasn't the issue. Party over, breakfast the following morning.........what a pantomime that was. Waitress 1 taking order, she disappears. Waitress 2 takes order. We explain that has already been taken - the look of disappointment. Breakfast... More

Stayed at this former Holiday Inn which is ideally located off the A1. Sadly this hotel is tatty and tied. Bedrooms were ok but you really can't go wrong with a bedroom. Asked for extra milk and teabags and got told that they had runout, really,reception should be fully stocked. Breakfast was something else, if you do find yourself staying... More

Our room was musty, smelt of damp, curtains were filthy the whole room felt as if hadn't been aired or used for a long time. No air conditioning which meant having the windows open with the A1 traffic noise, it was either that of suffer the smell. This hotel needs a total renovation .... We won't stay again. Service was...

Rooms are ok, clean. Breakfast - room very cramped, staff do a lot of walking around and not achieving much, all very disjointed. Served warm orange juice, tea tasted of coffee. Went to pour the milk into cereal, staff member took the jug without any consideration and went off with it!!! Staff need to smarten up their act.
