      • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort

      A tired out and run down hotel

      The main building itself looks nice but the annex is in a very poor state with patchy paintwork, exteremly thin walls and a lumpy and uncomfortable bed. The staff were friendly but in general the whole place is a bit run down and poor value for money. We wont be staying again any time soon!

      • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

      Tired, disappointing, basic & needs major refurb

      Hotel very tired, and just doesn’t resemble the photos advertised in the slightest. From the moment we arrived in the car park, which was covered with parking warning signage, we were sceptical. Polite and pleasant staff checked us in, but then allocated us a room which, at best could be described as tired, dilapidated and basic. The whole annex in which the room was housed felt dated; the walls covered in dots and dabs of paint covering old marks etc; the carpet threadbare and the room looked more 1980s than 2020s. It really didn’t stand up against its price tag, when a comparable price got a clean, modern and more relaxing double room at a nearby Premier Inn. We opted not to stay the night in the end - as we just didn’t feel comfortable, though credit to the staff they were apologetic for the inconvenience. Couldn’t fault them, simply the hotel and dated facilities.
