Fair 4.0
Misleading information and falsely advertised!
Planned a romantic weekend with my partner.. firstly we were given single beds when we were expecting a double - receptionist very condescending and told me u should have read the small print! No offer to move things around for us, basically told nothing they can do.. ok fine.. then ask where the sauna is that is listed as a facility on your website - this was located at their sister hotel down the road! Had I know that When u booked, I would have booked that hotel instead! Your website states £5 per day parking - again incorrect information- it’s actually £6! No ice buckets available so had to use a jug for our champagne- very classy! I’m highly disappointed with this stay and feel the information you gave about the hotel was incorrect and misleading! All in all it was a terrible weekend and we left feeling it was a complete waste of money! Not happy!

Fair 4.0
The staff were reasonably pleasant regarding my first complaint but slow to act in putting it right. The throw on the bed had various stains on it when I arrived. I brought it to the attention of reception staff. Then went out for a couple of hours & when I got back the stained throw was still on the bed so I took it down to reception immediately in annoyance & showed it to them. It was only then that a clean one was brought up to my room. Later on when about to sleep my daughter discovered someone else's pyjama bottoms underneath her pillow! I also wasn't that impressed with the breakfast. I found the bacon a bit rubbery & didn't enjoy the taste of the sausages either. I've been to another holiday inn & just had a better experience, so found this one to be quite disappointing.

Good 6.0
Like staying with your elderly aunt
The staff at this hotel are amazing - friendly, helpful and professional. This, coupled with "value for money" are the only conceivable reasons for it's high rating on The furnishings and carpets are cheap and tired; the rooms are clean, but the hallways hadn't been vacuumed in days; one of the two lifts was broken throughout my stay; the phone in the bedroom had all the call buttons missing (i.e. no way to contact reception); no wi-fi in my bedroom (too far from the lobby, apparently); no escaping the blaring TV's in three separate breakfast areas; the list of minor annoyances is endless. The entire experience is like staying with a sweet elderly aunt who lives somewhere convenient - fine in principle and lovely for the first five minutes, but soon you wonder why you didn't just book into a decent hotel.

Exceptional 10.0
Hotel At it's Best
Reception staff were polite and helpful with a genuine warm smile. Rooms were comfortable and clean, there was everything you needed for your stay lovely bathroom for disabled definitely will come again on next hospital visit. Just a suggestion it would be great to see one English meal with no spices on, as I just like plain cooking. And I am sure many more do too. Breakfast was great plenty of choice hot and cold. I love the idea of grab and go. Wonderful service . The bar could do to stock Dry Martini as I was given Bianco and there is a difference in the drinks in the sweetness. Also vermouth should be served in a 50 ml measure not 25 ml. Manyntomto all staff for a wonderful stay even though it was only short. Mrs B Purchon MBE

Very good 8.0
Comfortable stay.
Breakfast was good with lovely lean bacon and Cumberland sausages. Continental choice too and you can take it away, if you are in a hurry. Parking is £6 a night in their own car park, which isn't large so suggest getting there early to secure a place. Don't understand why hotels charge their guests to park in their car parks now. A multi storey car park is next to the hotel and as it's a quiet area, seems very safe. Room was comfortable and had everything you would need. Good shower and spacious bathroom. Tea/ coffee is replenished daily. Stafff all very pleasant and helpful supplying maps of the town area. Plenty of places to eat in the town, which is about 15 minutes walk away. Would definitely use this hotel again.
