    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    The room was very tired, paint scratched off, marks on carpet, lights not coming on from switch near door so had to fumble about in the dark. Came back second night, long way to room and then key didn’t work. Lovely housekeeping.

      I was disappointed in this hotel. Our room was very dirty. We were traveling with two small children who wanted to use the pool. But we were not told that they actually closed half an hour before closing time. Then in the morning when we tried to go at the opening time we were told the first hour was for members only. Very frustrating for a family with children. We did eat dinner there and the food was fine. Breakfast was very nice.

      Urgent refurbishment needed

      Checked in late due to being held in traffic. Got on and was checked into a room on the side of the A5 despite requesting a room on the other side, it seems staff either don’t know the geography of the hotel or they don’t care which room they allocate you. On all the occasions I have been there my requests were turned down or acknowledged. The room was very tiny and carpets filthy, stained. Wardrobe had dust and the room smelt of dust.
