Stayed here for a few weeks with work, Not a bad hotel really, could do with a good maintenence as stayed in numerous rooms with little niggles in everyone either being freezing,broken sockets, blocked sinks or flushes missing, just small things but something in every room, beds were comfywith decent WiFi. Staff were quite moody especially the Eastern European1 girl who is very rude and abrupt, Just like to mention one girl think her name was Tyler or Taylor- amazing really was welcoming, couldn't do enough for you helpful , polite and always knew everything you asked "manager in the making their without a doubt" that girl should be running that place,

On arrival staff are warm and welcoming. My room was chilly, I called reception who brought me the key to a different, warmer room within minutes. The staff went out of their way to make my stay as comfortable as possible, providing extra coffee, pillows, asking if I needed fresh towels & offering to call me when Just Eat arrived. I would definitely recommend staying here

Booked this hotel at short notice, a short walk from the railway station. Greeted warmly and checked that I was there for a legitimate purpose, regarding covid restrictions. The room was comfortable and had a good firm bed.

I stayed for a night in January 2021. Plus side: Bed was decent Price An issue with the room was sorted out quickly and I was moved to another room Negative: Felt like a slightly better Premier inn. I was expecting more COVID restrictions, however, meant all communal areas were closed, and breakfast was sad few items in a bag hung on the door. In normal situations things are probably better.

We have stayed in PentaHotels before and have always found them to be good, this wasn't our best experience. We stayed just before Lockdown 2 and on arrival were ready to relax with a drink in the bar before heading out later. We arrived at about 1pm to be told the bar would close at 4 due to staffing, which was fine, but when we went back down at 2 it was already closed. The breakfast choice was made on check-in which wasn't ideal, but understandable, but the way it was managed by the staff in the morning was good. On the whole, it just felt a bit tired. One of the lifts had broken buttons, old looking sheets and damaged robes etc, it just felt like it needed a little more. It is fine if you are looking to just sleep as the beds are comfortable and the free movies are a bonus. The staff were however really good, and it wouldn't take much to bring it back up.
