Decided to stop over after visiting family in the area, rather than make the long trek home late at night. Check-in was easy and staff friendly and personable. The room was large and comfortable, but no view, as it overlooked the rear carpark. We enjoyed a substantial breakfast after a good night's sleep, although at £18 per person was a bit pricey. Will look for a deal with breakfast included next time. Two minor things let it down, which can easily be remedied. Nasty make-up smeared on the back of the bathroom door from previous occupant, suggest housekeeping may not be as thorough as they ought. This prompted me to do a quick wipe around myself. However everywhere else in room appeared spotless. Only one set of towels had been supplied and had to request more from reception as housekeeping did not answer phone. I understand that the hotel is fairly recently refurbished and the decor is calm and welcoming, but along the corridor and up the stairs walls are already marked and carpet stained. Again am sure housekeeping could remedy this and easily get everything looking top notch. Will happily stay here again if in the area.
