I've stayed in this hotel on business for the past few years on and off. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Clean, tidy and comfortable. Fast Wi-Fi. Reasonable bar for size of hotel. Fast service for food. Friendly welcoming staff who always enjoy a chat with you. Great!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 August 2016

I was given a room downstairs and not that far from reception - normally a no for me due to noise but this was fine. Room was quiet. Believe they are carrying out some refurbishment to the hotel - my room must have been done as it was very fresh and everything worked fine. Didn't affect my stay at all...

Just a standard Holiday Inn Express really. Room was small, Wi-Fi speed good, breakfast ok, good location. £4 for a pint of beer is steep, popped to the petrol station adjacent instead. Not one of the best but not one of the worst - probably would stay here again if in the area.

We revisited here for a family weekend and were impressed with the new decor, furnishings and improved en-suite. We were particularly happy with the bigger duvet so no fighting to keep your share! The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast good and overall a great value stay.
