Stayed here in Jan on a business trip. The staff were warm and friendly but the place is family run and to be fair you can tell. The decor in the room was a dated and the bathroom suite was coloured and there was no where to stick your makeup bag and toilettries - like no shelf in front of the mirror. however the room was clean and tidy.
Getting bags up to the room is a problem as there is no lift and no bell boy. I struggled badly and the hallway for some reason really stinks of furniture polish to the brink of making you feel a bit queasy.
Outside the traffic was relentless as the place is just adjacent to a major junction. However there was plenty of parking.
I ate at the restaurant in the hotel in the evening and I have to admit this was a big mistake as it was over priced rubbish. I had a salmon starter that was ok but a bit tasteless (presentation great though) but the caesar chicken salad was terrible - and the chicken was so tough I couldnt eat it. I am not one to complain normally but this was so bad I actually told the waitress to tell the chef not to serve anyone else with that chicken because it was so terrible.
So i went to bed feeling hungry and listened to next door play a guitar to some girls who giggled noisily but I didnt mind that at least someone was having fun that night.
Theres no gym so I took a run in the morning. The staff didnt have an idea of where I could run so that was a bit disappointing too.
Breakfast was great if you like cooked stuff or cereals but if you eat fruit and continental like me then you can have a fruit salad and thats about it. There were no bowls or spoons for this and I had to track down the single waitess on duty to obtain these...
All in all I wouldnt stay there again if i had a choice...sorry
