I would definitely stay at this hotel again. I had booked a twin room for me and my mother for a couple of nights. As my mother struggles to climb into baths, I had asked if it was possible to have a walk in shower if possible in the requests section when booking. I recieved a message from the hotel to say that they were sorry but they didnt have any twin rooms with walk in showers. We were delighted on arrival to find we had been upgraded to an assessable room with 2 double beds and a wet room. Beds were very comfortable and everything was nice and clean. The staff were all very nice too. The height of the chairs in the lounge bar were comfortable but a little low for eating. But we managed and the food was excellent .Very enjoyable stay

excellent hotel in industrial estate

Booked here for graduation as city centre hotels were booked up or charging exorbitant rates. Outwardly looked a bit grim but inside bright, clean and comfortable. Check in was a bit slow as we had booked 4 rooms. 2 of the rooms were upgraded although our room wasn't despite all rooms being in my name. Rooms good. Bed comfortable with the bonus of black out curtains. Decided against breakfast £15 pp although lower price, £10 pp if you ordered night before. Only disappointment were the taxis. As a part of 9 asked for 7 seater and an ordinary taxi. Landed up getting 3 taxis which seemed like a graduation day tax!
