A warning for anyone driving to this hotel, there is a charge of £15 per night simply to park your car. All the local streets are permit only parking, and the only local car park that allows overnight parking is Asda, which would cost £12 anyway and mean lugging your bags down the road.
So, if you are driving please add £15 per night to all room costs. Not quite the bargain it first seems!
Apart from that, the room was very stuffy; the air-con shut off after 5 minutes and the window
window couldn't be opened, meaning a very uncomfortably warm night.
Aside from that the hotel was ok. The pool was basic but nice enough, the rooms were a bit shabby but clean, the wi-fi was free, and the TV had a normal Freeview signal rather than a limited selection of rubbish.
The breakfast was also good quality, and the staff were pretty friendly, so it's not a bad hotel aside from the extortionate hidden costs.
