My partner and i stayed in this hotel at the beginning of august. The hotel is situated in the corner of a big car park because there is a big food hall on the same site. Staff were friendly and helpful and check in was quick. The room was ok, clean but the decor was lacking. The dvd player did not work on the tv in our room but this did not bother us too much as we were going out for the night anyway. However when we looked for an iron there was none in the room, and when we rang reception to ask , we were informed that there is an ironing room down near reception. This room contained 2 ironing stations.I dont think this is a good idea, it is not convenient to have to bring your clothes downstairs to iron them. Also dont expect any complimentary toiletries in your bathroom - there is hand soap and a shower gel dispenser both attached to the wall.
After returning from our evening out we decided to have a nightcap so headed for the bar area - what a disaster that is!. It is plonked in the corner of the dining room, with the only comfortable seating accommodating only about 10 people. Other than that you have to sit at a high table, you cant even sit at the other tables because they were all set for breakfast. Suffice it to say we only stayed for one drink.
Breakfast next morning was fine, but again dont expect anything fancy, the choice is limited.
All in all if you are looking for a bed for the night and are not looking for luxury, or a comfortable place to relax and have a drink, this hotel is adequate.
