Just come back from staying at this hotel. We paid 100 pounds per night. The bedroom was large but dark and the furnishing very old and old fashioned. The carpet was dull and stained. In the corridor the carpets were threadbare the doors needed a coat of paint the wallpaper coming off in places. Not worth the money we paid.

The service was fine and I was able to park on site. The location was cknvenient and easy to find. The bed was small, but the room was clean and tidy. I can agree with others' comments that some features are a little shabby or outdated - however, this didn't detract too much from the overall experience. I also agree...

Craig the manager was amazing not only sorting us a room but upgrading us knowing we were stressed. The room was gorgeous and the staff were amazing. The receptionist was so friendly and helpful.

The hotel is dated and needs complete refurbishment that takes into account customers with walking problems or disability - lift out of order all week but even then did not go to all floors. Some chair lifts but not adequate as do not cover all flights of...

Stayed here just for one night with friend as late check-in. Recommended by another hotel (don't know why). The hotel looks shabby from the outside and inside isn't much better unfortunately. Swimming pool lovely and warm but really does need to be cleaned I think as there was a thick scum all around the edge, which did put us off...

Last stayed in this Hotel in 2011 for a Turkey and Tinsel break. Just come back from a long weekend and have to say although décor is a little tired, staff and location make this an excellent place to stay. Food is absolutely delicious with plenty of choice for both breakfast and evening meal. Entertainment was passable but have to...
