I stayed here on business two out of three nights (tues and thurs, weds I was elsewhere) the first room I had was lovely, in the refurbished wing, airy, light and generally very nice on the face of it. although there were some issues I had, some may say that I am being picky, but they really annoyed me.
1.) no plug in the sink (and some broken glass down the plug hole) - made it difficult to shave, ended up using the iron filling jug as a plug!
2.) no chain on the bath plug, it actually made it almost IMPOSSIBLE to remove the plug! Ended up using two bath/lotion bottles as pliers to remove the plug - I shouldn't be having to do that.
3.) The bath overflow was rusted through.
4.) The main light bulb was not working
5.) the kettle was all scaled up.
BASICALLY for the sake of a few pounds, literally it could all be sorted with change from a tenner, I am leaving a three star review, rectify these issues and it would be a 5/5 from me.
Plenty of parking, but it gets very full in the evening.
Ask to be in the refurbished wing, it's 100 times better and has air con, on my second night I was put in the old block, went straight down to reception and got moved to the last room in the new block (A twin room, but still preferable)
Breakfast is pretty good actually.
House keeping are great, the room was spotless.
Front of house 4/5
Maintenance 2/5 - get your finger out!
