The hotel is located conveniently and easy to find. In fact, the hotel provided me with details for SatNav. Little factors like this help to make the experience and stay that much more pleasurable. The staff were consistently pleasant, friendly and helpful. As well as breakfast we also dined in the hotel's restaurant one evening. The food was lovely, well...

Not an expensive overnight stay which is reflected in the overall decor. Room was clean and functional if not dated. Off putting stain in bath and fixed shower which is a pet hate and no bath mat. Heating can be controlled in room which is a plus. Breakfast was purchased at booking and for £5 you couldn't beat it, plenty...

We were attending a family funeral the following morning so needed to be close to the venue. The room was clean and comfortable, reception staff were very helpful. The restaurant was fairly good - and whilst the fare was hardly what you would call 'fine dining' it was certainly up to good pub standards - and better than many 'chain'...

Stayed overnight whilst attending 40th birthday party in hotel. Had dinner in restaurant before going to venue and meal was excellent, great choice of main courses. Staff were very friendly and helpful, tables a comfortable distance from each other. Cooked breakfast was made to order and they did not skimp on portions. Definitely will be back.
