Okay for a relatively cheap stay
Firstly I must point out that this hotel is very well priced for the location, hence we were not expecting wonders. On the plus side the staff are very friendly and helpful. They give a decent welcome and make you fell at home. The foyer is well maintained and presentable, as was the function room that we spent the evening in. Also on the plus size our room was upgraded when we checked in FOC. On the minus side, the room could have done with re-decorating because of the random paint chips off the wall and the bed was very hard. However the room was clean and had been well prepared by the staff. The only exceptions to this was the limescale on the heated towel rack and the shower head. In short if I had paid more, I would have been disappointed, but at the price that we paid it was a large room that was well cleaned so was acceptable.

8/10 Very good

Got a very good deal by booking a long way in advance. The hotel is looking pretty tired and needs a bit of TLC. The breakfast was pretty chaotic having changed to no bookings and all buffet style. But staff tried very hard and were very friendly.

poor soundproofing
staff were helpful and friendly. food was better than expected from the previous reviews. rooms were warm and comfortable and clean. not hotel fault but a rowdy family group arrived with no respect for others staying and was noisy, there isnt much sound proofing in rooms and could hear conversations ect through the rooms next door. we were moved to a better and quiter room but shame had to move for only a 2 night stay.
