Stayed for one night. Hotel is large and reception area very nice. Rooms are slightly dated but its a cheap room do what more is expected. Clean bathrooms with great power shower. Would stay again for the price. :)

Believe me, I would never willingly stay a night in this hotel after reading the myriad of appealing reviews and especially after reading the manager's inadequate and often condescending replies... However, I attended a conference here which was rather quite pleasant. The room was warm, pens and paper were waiting, as were coffee and pastries. The toilets were very old...

I have stopped here on several occasions and have found it to offer good value for money every time. This is particularly so if you have the early bird evening meal. My only gripe is that parking can be a pain. The car park is huge but they allow people to leave their cars here when they fly out of...

The only good thing about the hotel was the lobby / Entrance looked very festive. It was all done hill from there , not what you expect from a big hotel chain? The kindest thing to say is "read the reviews first" and make up your own mind , all I going to say is : The phrase "buyers beware":(

We booked a room at this hotel online a few days before our stay, when booking I had to give my card details which I assumed meant the cost of the room was then being taken from my account.

I am sorry that you were charged twice following your recent stay with us. I do not understand why a member of our reception staff would laugh when a guest has been charged twice.
