      Individual guest reviews

      • The location was excellent, the place was spotless and the staff were all very helpfull and friendly. The room was hot, sheets were clean and standard of food was much better than has been in the past.

        Poor quality of bedding, not worth the money and service slow at times. Bathroom fan was very noisy and the music from the the bar was too loud. Breakfast was very overpriced and the receptionist was rather rude.

      • The location is great, the hotel is quiet and the lobby is attractive, Booked in was easy and the receptionist pleasant. Ladies at reception are friendly, a room overlooking the carpark might be better and the food is lovely.

        Carpets very worn in public areas for example and the road is busy and traffic runs throughout the night. Wardrobe space is very limited and cramped; narrow bed; curtain off its runners; carpet V.

      • Excellent location and very comfortable Hotel. Helpful front desk staff and shower was good provided you didnt put the head too high [obvious pressure/water head problem. Breakfast was a big English fry up buffet.

        The decor was out of date and the room was not well kept, the bathroom was grubby and the plumbing poor.
