We were upgraded which was great as it was a special treat for my wife's birthday. The room was very large and looked good, but let down by TV that didn't work properly, couldn't get the radio on it - wife loves The Archers. Asked about getting the radio on the TV at reception and told "It's not working" and that was that!! I would be considering re-decoration of the room we stayed in 201 if it was my lounge at home.
The carpet in the public area of the hotel (just by the bar) at 5.30 pm had lots of crumbs and sugar packets on the floor (looked more like a railway station waiting room) and none of the staff seemed bothered. Not impressed!
Breakfast was OK and the food needed refreshing (well it did when I went to it). The waiting staff were very good and attentive - brightened up the morning.
Think it is a ripe-off that the hotel charges £18.50 to guests for parking over night - there is no alternative parking in the area so we are "trapped" and no free wi-fi.
Over all I would give it 7 out of 10
