Do not book this hotel!!! The place is filthy and needs a complete renovation. What was once probably a beautiful hotel with great facilities in the 70’s is now a tired reck. My room was a”premium room” and was awful so I dread to think what a budget room was like. I ordered a latte at the bar and the glass arrive with a thick layer of ingrained coffee scum from where the glass had not been washed. I paid £100ish per night for two nights and it is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

Could be nice hotel

Pros: Staff
Cons: Refurbishment of hotel
Hotel looks very pleasing but is very sad and tired. First room we checked into the bathroom light kept going out with no means of putting on again from within bathroom. Bathroom also had mould in between tiles ! Staff very pleasant and moved us to a much larger room with large double bed and two singles. However pipe holding shower head was only attached to wall at top, still mould between tiles plus all double glazing within room had blown. Minor point but for a 4 star hotel no toiletries apart from shower gel attached to wall. Lounge full of guys watching football in the evening.

Nice hotel for stop over

Reception staff very friendly. Room spacious and clean, especailly as a budget room. Outside areas looking quite sad and unkept (Probably a cut back in keeping expenses down, saying that pleasant to sit in on a very hot evening and eat Supper. (food from bar very expensive for what it is) Would use hotel again.

Convenient Stay

Pros: Breakfast
Cons: Cleaning
Location: Don't know
The hotel is on a main road so from 05:30hrs it is quite noisy. The room was mostly clean but the extractor fan over the shower has not been cleaned for some time. The room was a good size, the right temperature and the bed was comfortable. The en-suite was large and clean but the light over the mirror was flicking on and off. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. A good hotel for a short business stop at a reasonable price.

Overnight stay following local wedding.

Pros: Nothing in particular.
Cons: See above.
Location: No idea.
The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful when I telephoned in advance of my booking. I was expecting great things. On checking in that evening, the two gentlemen in reception were not quite as friendly. I was very disappointed in the standard of the room - it was shabby and looked in need of a bit of care and attention. Net curtains hanging off the railing where they were torn. Two lightbulbs were completely missing. The bed was uncomfortable. There was a sign in the bathroom saying not drinking water and yet no bottled water was provided. Toiletries provided in the bathroom consisted of one tablet of soap. There was a strange vent area in the ceiling which I presume was to do with air conditioning(?), however it became illuminated when the room lights were on so gave a very creepy feeling that someone might drop in or be spying on you! The lady at the breakfast check-in was rather unfriendly. Not the 4* I was expecting.

The breakfast was awful ! everything was "wet"

Pros: The guy who was on nights was the only help full person we came into contact with. The room cleaners made a good job of the room.
Cons: Breakfast/Double bed/bathroom plug (or lack of)
Location: Tons of things to do within a short drive.
The hotel was just OK. we could not get a plug for the wash hand basin in the bathroom despite several requests to supply one. we ended up using a piece of wet toilet paper in order to use the sink. The breakfast was appalling. The sausages had been cooked in a "steam oven" according to the manger on duty, and then grilled only they forgot to do the grill bit. Tomatoes were uncooked and the mushrooms looked as though they had been boiled. All this was serviced by a restaurant manageress who appeared to have lost her smile muscles and had a smaller fan club than Attilla the Hun. The double bed didn't have any legs i.e. it was set on the floor and was a constant trip hazard both myself and my wife were constantly stubbing our toes or falling over the corners

nice time

We arrived and our room was a twin, we had booked a double and this was changed without questioning. At the evening meal the waitresses questions regarding our stay were a little inappropriate and there was a discussion regarding the amount of tomato sauce that was being wasted, which in all honesty we did not need to hear. The breakfast I felt was expensive, there was a good choice, I feel a staggered price would be better I only had fruit and at 14.95 expensive.the pool was closed for re-furb
