Check in was simple and pleasant and the room was excellent. Lots of storage and power sockets, good sized desk and plenty of room. Wifi was good and the... More

staff weren't overly attentive but the food was good. the guy serving the carvery meat wasn't the most generous and the soups were not very nice but i really enjoyed the chicken wings, salads and the mashed potato! plenty of choice of desserts.

I booked the superior room as I wanted a bit of extra comfort and my impression of the hotel from the website was more of a Travel Lodge style. I was told that the hotel had been modernised and certainly the room was very clean and comfortable... More

we booked to stay overnigh after oour son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception, and everything was very good. The staff were very helpful, and the room was nice and tidy and warm. The wedding reception itself was very well catered, and everyone had an exceptional day.
