The staff and the location of this hotel are its biggest assets. It is rare to find such happy, friendly and helpful staff in a hotel these days. It is true to say that my room (108) was a bit dated, however, the communal areas of the hotel, bars, restaurant and lobby are absolutely great. The food was very good...

The food was very hot. There was a good choice and generous portions. Seating areas around the hotel were good although the entertainment level is difficult for those with walking difficulties. Our room was on the side of the hotel on the 3rd floor. A good size room with two armchairs (in most hotels we have to ask for a...

Hi booked this as a convenient one night stay on a business trip. Staff were fine, breakfast was good. Room was poor for the money and that is being polite.. windows that did not close properly, a "desk" that due to the floor sloped into the room at an angle that made it next to useless.

This hotel badly needs some refurbishment, especially in the bedrooms. We stayed in room 300 on the top floor, we requested a lower floor, when my wife requested a different room she was told we could have a superior room for £20 per night extra. Our room was small, with no cupboards, a large bathroom , larger than the bedroom...
