The hotel is massive and in a great location but it is in desperate need of updating. We stayed for 3 nights, luckily we had trips booked so didnt spend much time there. The food was average but staff were lovely. We couldnt get a seat in the evening for the entertainment, so

A massive, tired looking hotel, 80s decor, the whole hotel could do with a revamp BUT it was so very welcoming, the whole hotel had a great atmosphere, the staff were friendly and the tired/shabbiness of the hotel just kind of added a quirkiness to the place. The room was clean

How much is car parking? And does it have to be booked? We’d need a guaranteed space.
We got free car parking in the basement area, next to the cages of dirty laundry. This was great as my brother decided the hotel was so awful he would prefer to sleep in the car. I managed to talk him out of it after I’d cleared the empty pint glasses from under his bed and wiped the pubes off the sink. But still, it was good to know we could retreat to the car at any point.

£3.50 no problems parking as most of the guests are travelling by coach!
