Stayed here for 3 nights in November. Rooms are a little dated with only one proper power socket in my room. TV is closed circuit type with only a few channels. Movies are over priced and you cannot plug in your own device via HDMI . On the plus side, breakfast was above average for a HI Express and the...

My daughter and I stayed overnight. Andy on reception is such an asset to this hotel group. NOTHING was too much trouble. As a member of this hotel group, my daughter and I had the advantage of a 2pm checkout. The room itself was spotless (including the bathroom). Have to add that the bed was the most comfortable bed I...

First visit having previously stayed next door at its big brother but this was cheaper! Nice clean room and breakfast included is a bonus.
