          There's a ground floor entrance but reception need to be called to open the door if it's needed between 11am and 5pm when the area is not manned. We have no walkin showers or disabled friendly rooms unfortunately.

          The hotel is OK. It is beginning to look in need of a refresh, but perfectly fine for a stop-over or a few days.
