Staff were friendly, no issues there. To say the hotel requires some TLC is an understatement, it is just so grubby, everywhere you look. Linen in the room was clean, but the furniture, carpet, even the TV was just so scruffy, the shower did not work properly either. Rule Brittania, you must be joking

The decor was a little dated but ok. The twin bed I slept in was very squeeky which affected my sleep. My son was bitten by something overnight. I checked the mattress and saw no signs of bedbugs but they may be flea bites.

Would not stay again

Room was dirty. I.E hair on bathroom floor, purple substance in the sink, pubic hair and yellow stain on toilet bowl, dirt all along the skirting boards, bits of black flick in the bed. wifi didn't work in the room, beds were uncomfortable. Asked for a double bed but it was 2 single beds pushed together. No hair and body wash in the dispenser. Food was terrible(undercooked jacket potato, was cold and hard).

The hotel has become run down and shabby. It is now in dire need of refurbishment.. The staff were pleasant and helpful, but there were maintenance problems with the first three bedrooms we looked at. I was unable to have a shower at 6.30 am because the water was cold. The restaurant was unable to offer any food at 8.00 pm. Very disappointing, altogether, particularly as I had booked a room for 3 nights

Stay away

This stay was the worst I ever experienced, I didn't sleep due to the room being so hot and unable to open the windows, I had one pillow on a double bed which was actually two singles together, which fell apart during the night. The sheets didn't fit so they were half on and half off. The television didn't work and when the staff member fixed it I could only get 2 channels. A really uncomfortable night.

good stop over

The room was very roomy with a big bed. Bathroom could do with some attention (loose tiles mouldy grouting). Breakfast was not great. There was a large coach party in before us, so maybe that is why there was very little food left. No fresh fruit.

The rooms were filthy, dusty, noisy. the restaurant had dirty tables, cutlery, no jam or marmalade for your toast no staff on hand to ask anything, when they did show their face they couldn't be bothered to help. It was more like a place for the workmen and more like a workers cafe. There was a constant humming from the boiler or something all night along with the constant slamming of doors we had no sleep!!!
