We stayed here for one night on a Saturday for £70 for a twin room. No issues with cost.
The room was clean and smart looking, if a little small. The shower was the best I have seen from a hotel in this price class.
Staff are friendly enough. There was a gentleman on checkout who was really good, they should clone him as the girl who checked us in was a bit of a grumpy so and so.
The rooms are too hot and stuffy. When it disrupts your ability to get a good nights sleep something really ought to be done. We had the air con on which didn't seem to do much, I checked the system control which said 'cool' on it so assumed it was a cheap system that wasn't worth the money. However! On checkout, the helpful chap said that to actually make it work properly you have to ask at reception..........this really should be explained to you on check in - not check out.
unfortunately - no matter how good this hotel looks on the surface, if you can't get a good night sleep due to the heat in the room then it's not worth staying again. Mud sticks and I'd rather stay somewhere else with the option of a window for much the same price.
We skipped breakfast in order to ecape the stuffy environment - the prospect of our 230 mile return trip was a pleasing one as it meant we could get fresh air!
I won't be returning, which is a shame as it's a good location and clean.
