I've stayed at this hotel during a business trip. It looks really cosy from the outside. Although I've booked a single room I was upgraded to a double room. The room was nothing special but nice and spacious. The bathroom looked relatively new. There's this thing in hotel bathrooms that I don't like: showering in the bathtub. Most of the times the tub is too small to relax in so why not make it a nice spacious shower. But I realise that is something personal and not specific to this hotel.
The walls and doors could use some fresh paint however.
Breakfast in the mornings was good, not special but nice anyway. It's just those tv's..... Is it specificfor Brittish hotels? Breakfast was served in the bar.
The ladies at the reception were very nice and friendly and helpfull.
So all together I liked this hotel for a business trip. Nothing special but nice and clean and in the centre of town.
