Easy to find if you look for the Monkey Puzzle restaurant sign. In a non-residential area - quiet - with no discernable noise from outside.
Plenty of free parking.
Noise insulation between floors is NON-EXISTENT - woken shortly after 05:00 by occupant in room above. Could hear every footfall, doors closing, water running. Have absolutely no idea what constituted a "Good Night's Sleep" but being woken so early wasn't my idea of one! No comment from check out staff other than "it's a problem that's been reported to Head Office a number of times"!
Hadn't realised when we arrived quite late that noise insulation was so poor (our apologies to the occupants above if we disturbed your early night)!
Facilities in room quite "budget". Kettle - very small for potentially 4 occupants of a quad room - took forever to boil. Only 2 small mugs & 2 glasses provided.
TV quality was good - plenty of programmes and good reception.
King size bed too firm & pillows (even those marked 'firmer') too soft. Day bed not too bad but underbed spare felt like it was just a base and was missing a mattress. Room was certainly large enough to have used both singles.
Room reasonably decorated (clean & bright, if a bit clinical) and temperature (set at 21) was comfortably warm, though it would have been nice to have been able to securely open a window if only a fraction as it felt very airless.
Back of bathroom door had 3 large holes in as if hooks had been ripped out.
Plenty of hot water - sufficient for 3 to have baths one after the other.
Cussons soaps in dispensers was a nice touch.
Heated towel rail with sign warning "this towel rail can get hot"! - though it didn't really get past luke warm for us.
Check in lady was very friendly and quick to provide bedding for the single bed which, despite booking the room for 3 people, hadn't been made up.
This was a last minute booking but I was annoyed when, as the booking engine had gone down when I tried to book the night before, when I finally managed to get onto it the following morning (the day of travel) the price had gone up £5!
Arrived too late and left too early to take advantage of the on-site Brewers Fayre (the Monkey Puzzle) but imagine it's very similar to all the other Brewer's Fayres in the UK.
All in all not a bad experience - it was convenient for where we were going the following day and was an OK stop-over, but I'm not sure that I would want to stay for any length of time though...
