The room was clean but the furniture was dated and looked like it was in need of an upgrade. The wardrobe door was broken and had come partially off it's tracks and made a high pitch screeching noise when it moved. The bed springs sounded like they were broken on one side and were very uncomfortable. The following series of events... More

Warm welcome when we arrived. Room was spotless and comfortable. One down side was they didn't have much tea/coffee or any biscuits but overall was enjoyable enough and it was very close to our venue.

My partner and I stayed here as I was on a course locally and the other hotels were full - I know now why this place had vacancies. I'm really angry at myself for not remembering the room number as I want to warn everyone against staying in the same one - I think it was 52? The drive into... More

Small room, uncomfortable bed, tiny shower (shoulder to shoulder walls), staff seems pissed all the time, bar closes early, "lift" could barely fit my normal size luggage and me, depressing old look, carpets are in need of a wash... etc. just depressing all around!

Country house it is not. 1980's airport hotel with no improvements. The best you can say is that it is quiet and the beds and baths are clean. No ambiance, nothing joyful or pleasurable. Food is terrible.

Visited this hotel on a weekend in early November for one night, attending an event nearby. First impressions were not great. Our party of 6 were met with a queue heading through reception and out the door for check-in. Next, the double rooms we had arranged were booked as singles, so this then took time to sort out. The rooms... More

The room was dirty. Heating was covered with drops of coffee. The furniture, tea/coffee facilities and bath were covered with dust. The shower and toilet looked like used. The shower set was broken. Fire alarm was activated two times without reason.
