Where do I begin! Firstly the hotel we booked changed names but we were sent no notification at all. Led to believe the hotel was in Nth Chester but in fact it was in Wales!

The staff are welcoming and friendly and the hotel is very clean although a bit dated in places with a referb due in particular the bathrooms, not many take baths these days and the height of the baths would challenge the normal person. With only...

Our room was clean and a decent size, unfortunately the mattress dipped quite majorly in the middle! The restaurant was fantastic, amazing steak and ale pie! Breakfast was good, it lacked...

The website does not show reality - the hotel requires a major upgrade. Furnishings in the room need replacing, no bedside lights, defunct bulbs not replaced , shower very noisy and double glazing does not keep out obtrusive traffic noise. The restaurant menu is limited - OK if all you want is chicken or pizza. Its saving grace are the...

This was offered on booking.com, and was very cheap with Breakfast and a pool. The hotel just needs a good refurb and the beds replacing as not very comfy. Carpets and furniture all need replacing.
