I had several meetings over 2 days and so needed a place to stay, as this hotel is conveniently located next to arterial roads, it seemed to be ideal for my needs. The room I had been allocated was at the back of the hotel which overlooked the bins however this meant the traffic noise didn't affect me as there...

Easy check in and check out. Double room was clean and comfortable. All staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was adequate - to suit all tastes. Unfortunately didn't have the chance to swim in the pool or use any facilities. Would happily stay here again.

Had 2 rooms, but needed to swap the kids room due to stale smoke. Whilst the issue was fixed there was no apology offered. Our room looked onto the A1 and we had 4 hours where it wasn't too noisy. Not much corridor noise. Toilet smelled of stale poop. Breakfast team said they would sort my wife some poached eggs...

We stayed for just one night, in two separate rooms. One of the rooms smelt of smoke, so we asked for a swap which was sorted without any fuss. The rooms are okay, a little worn in places. The walls are paper thin, we had very noisy people in the room next door. I rang reception who then called them...

Not happy about the behaviour of one of the receptionist called Dawn.
