Mattress were so worn you good feel the springs in the mattress. The shower was hit and miss. The general decor about the place was also in need of...

A recent three night stay here cost £220 for two people, which I thought was good value. The hotel was spacious and comfortable, the service friendly and the location great - easily accessible with loads of parking. Would stay again.

Pretty much what I expected clean and tidy, however the mattress left a lot to be desired. Lumpy is an understatement they may want to add memory foam mattress topper. As for the disabled bathroom there was no lighting over the bath which is a concern when you're unsteady on your feet but the saving grace was a phone next...

Comfortable hotel for business trip, very clean, excellent value, good parking, but best of all is food, daily evening carvery was delicious and breakfasts good too. Room was spacious. It's some way out of centre of town centre but easy to find and get in/out.
