Stayed here last night; large comfortable room and bed. Very quiet, not disturbed by any noise. Good choice of breakfast, all staff very helpful and pleasant. Large car park. Would recommend. Agree that 2 sets of towels would be useful for couples.

The best thing going about the hotel is comfy beds and nice Starbucks coffee... apart from that it's pretty dire. I stayed for two nights in what was apparently an executive and upgraded room - when I walked in, I was quite horrified. I later found out that it was refurbished in 2008 !! The room carpet was filthy, towel... More
