Having just spend 3 very enjoyable nights at this hotel, I'm somewhat puzzled by the low ratings offered by some of the reviewers. Admittedly we had no problems with noise ( despite our room being over the restaurant ) but noise can be a problem in any hotel at any time.
Our room was spacious, clean, warm, comfortable and well appointed, as was the bathroom.
We had the slightest of problems ( which turned out to be no problem at all !! ) regarding the cistern in the bathroom. Lawrence the maintenance man and the duty manager, both came back to the room twice and they couldn't have been more polite and helpful. Indeed, all of the staff we encountered, were friendly, helpful and efficient.
The only thing that stops me giving a 5 star rating for this hotel is that, for a mid range hotel, the price of £12.50 per person for breakfast, is a little steep. Otherwise, I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone.
