I stayed at this hotel through a value weekend break by coach through National Holidays, the break was excellent value and this hotel was the one chosen by National for the whole coach party of 42.
Looking at some of these reviews they are total bollocks, the hotel is in need of decoration but in my opinion should not look like the Ramada Plaza or the Midland in Manchester as it would not suit the surrounding area, nor should it look like one of these fairy looking places with open shelves, no proper shower base, purple lights, leather chairs that hurt your back.. because there is no back on the chair, and beer sells at £5 a pint, you know, the one where you order a round for 2 people and it's about 9 quid !
These people need to look at the price they are paying and not expect a 5 star hotel for under a £40 a shot per night.
It does need decoration but has anybody considered it is probably that well used and popular with several coach companies there may be little time to close it, it may have to be redecorated in sections, probably then the same bods would complain about the smell of paint !! or find other things to complain about. and up would go the price for all this.
The meal we had was excellent, both the evening meal and the breakfast.
I had firstly orange juice then French soup, then hotpot (this was really good) followed by cheesecake served by friendly staff, the breakfast was just as good served again by waiters, and not one of these hotels where you line up behind each other like the checkout at Asda.
This was a weekend break so it was Saturday Night and Sunday morning breakfast.
I have stayed in hotels with a far higher grade or rating than this and they have been worse by far and that's in the uk.
If you want a basic cheaper hotel, that's clean with good wholesome food and cheaper drinks this one is fine.
Park your Ford Fiesta outside not the Aston Martin DB9, there is parking, does this paint the picture ?? Dead basic, but clean with 60`s decoration in need of a gloss but no detriment to service.
