Fair 4.0
Check in 2pm room not available until almost 4.30 rude staff. Given a room to get changed in at around 3pm. Id just got undressed to get into the bath and a couple walked in. They'd been given a pass to the same room. Had a phone call when l was in the bath asking when wed be leaving the room then half an hour later wanting us to stay overnight in it despite my being disabled and requiring a twin. Corridors were dirty throughout our time there and vacum cleaners left on the coridoors causing a trip hazzard. When we eventually got the twin room it smelled very must. Our break, which was for a special occasion was totally ruined.

Good location, fairly decent hotel
Good location, clean and comfortable. Room is small with little space but a nice comfy bed. Breakfast experience not so good. Greeter was very unwelcoming, took room number and pointed to area. No tables laid up, had to ask for cutlery and butter. Both coffee machines needed trays emptying, again had to ask. No atmosphere, felt clinical. Food was quite good and fairly good selection. We are glad we didn't have to pay £12 each for it! Notified the aircon was broken upon check-in and offered 30% discount and free breakfast. Actually given 50% upon check-out although discount hadn't been logged and we had to ask.

To be honest this hotel is just a bit vanilla. Everything was clean and worked just fine, and being able to leave our bags for free was a bonus. It was just a bit unexceptional

Another lovely stay
Second time we’ve stayed at this hotel! Checked in early which was nice! Notice our air con wasn’t working in our room so let them know and they said the air con system wasn’t working so they brought us up a fan and gave us complementary breakfast to apologies which was really lovely! Staff are lovely and friendly. Rooms are a nice size and bed is comfy .
