8/10 Very good

The check-in was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable without being plush. Breakfast was fine, but I would have liked a selection of eggs, rather than just scrambled. The staff were friendly and seemed happy. In general the hotel was reasonable value for the money. It could do with a bit of freshening up, especially with the carpets. Only complaint was that we would gave liked to check-in an hour early, but there would have been a £10 charge.
