Both the reception staff were very friendly and efficient. The hotel was very busy but we were dealt with quickly.
The room was large but was no better fitted out than a budget hotel. In addition the room was showing signs of a hard life with paintwork damaged and cracks in the walls. The bathroom lighting was very poor and I could not see to shave in the mirror.
The internet access is free but you need to get a code from reception which was not advised on arrival.
On returning to the hotel in the evening about 11pm there was a live singing act on in the lobby, the sound of which carried through most of the hotel. This put us off having a drink in the bar. Many of the pubs around here have singers on as well, but at least you can choose not to go in.
The breakfast was not of the standard expected of a 4 star hotel. The sausages in particular were very cheap looking and heavily spiced to disguise the poor taste of the meat.
