          Individual guest reviews

          • Very comfortable, clean and excellent location, the Hotel was very good value overall, room was very hot and the window would not open more that 3 inches.

            Unfriendly staff and fitted bed sheet was worn out brown wrinkled and stained.

          • Reasonable location and unpretentious and good value. All the staff were very helpful and the room was clean and adequate.

            Stay away, poor bathroom and very greasy breakfast.

          • Good location very fair price and the staff are very helpful and were more than happy to accommodate a stag party of 15.

            The hotel is very dated and food, like everything else, very basic limited choice.

          • Location and staff good, room very dated, the breakfast was better than expected.

            Hotel car park fairly small and cramped, broken windows, noisy bar very late. Towels well worn, very little choice of coffee/.

          • Decent location at good price and easy walking distance to the BIC. A very short stay overnight only, staff were friendly and this room was better than the one we were originally allocated. The food at breakfast time was excellent.

            Other areas were very tired and outdated, the bed was rather uncomfortable.

            The bedroom could have been alot more comfortable and the towels were hard.

          • Good value for money on a saturday night and friendly staff.

            Carpeted bathroom seems unhygienic, the slow breakfast service.
