      Give it a miss

      If you are looking for a quiet weekend break, then don't choose this hotel. The emphasis seems to be on taking money in the night club bar 1812. From our room on the 2nd floor you could feel the thumping of the music till gone 4am. They said we were notified about this, but I found nothing to this effect. The young lady on reception replied that I could cancel, but I would not get any money back. They took money for 3 nights parking and then told us not to move the car because we might not get a space when we came back. Despite us paying. The whole hotel needs a lot of work. The pillows on the bed had been around a few years. We checked out one night early and they didn't even bother to ask why, or even ask if we had enjoyed out stay. Shabby service. The young girls on breakfast service worked hard, but they needed some more training. We were given odd cups and saucers and the young girl said 'well its a cup'. Won't be returning. Extremely

      Slightly disappointed

      Fire alarms went off twice 2 nights in a row in the early hours. Rooms are very dated but beds are comfy. Creaky floorboards outside the rooms. Love the bar and general vibe of the hotel. Had not noticed that parking was now charged for. With the price charged for the rooms so much higher than in previous years we felt it was an unfair addition. Love the breakfasts here but due to the increased price of the rooms went for the much cheaper option at the local Weatherspoons!

    • 6.0.Good

      Paid for overnight stay in a superior double room with breakfast . Chose this hotel due to the closeness to the BIC ,as we were going to a concert. Staff very helpful and friendly. Room large and could do with redecorating( but acceptable as the end of the season).Bed very comfortable, pillows desperately need replacing , they were the thickness of sliced bread .Checked in and went straight to our room . Received a phone call from reception a minute later to say they apologised in advance, that we would have a restless night they feared , as the bar directly below our room had live music scheduled until 1am but also the adjacent bar had music until 4am . They were not joking . Little sleep gained due to the loudness of the music . My advise, if you want a good nights sleep , only book this hotel when nil live music is scheduled .
