Plus points – low cost, particularly if you book early. Clean rooms (although the corridor was slightly smelly). Good car parking. Friendly staff. Free use of gym and pool next door.
The not so good bits. Noise from the busy road at the back and from other rooms. Very basic looking bar/restaurant area (at the next door gym) with little atmosphere. Rooms to hot. Tables in the bar area were sticky on one occasion. The scrambled egg for breakfast was plentiful but tasteless (powered egg?) and the bacon was very salty.
Would have been 3 stars but I gave it 4 as I enjoyed a nice swim and sauna. I would consider staying here again.
