Stayed for two nights on business. The hotel is a fantastic hotel with lots of character. There is an onsite gym and swimming pool which was clean and free to use. There is a lovely little breakfast area on site, breakfast was free but sadly I don't do breakfast, it did look very good though. I did eat both evening...

Quite a nice hotel with friendly staff (plenty of them!) and good food. But the essentials let it down. For example, the WiFi signal was too week to reach my room so I had to work in the bar; the car parking is limited unless you go across the road or into a multi-story near by; the room and bedding...

We recently spent one night in the Sleepwell annex at this hotel. The room was spacious, clean and tidy. The bathroom and shower facilities first class. We enjoyed an evening meal of Brie and asparagus followed by smoked haddock, poached eggs and mash which was excellent. All in all a friendly and welcoming hotel. Good value for money.

Centrally located with free car parking. Service good for evening meal, staff really friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was slower but food was very good. There is an adjacent night club and it can get noisy at weekends, but ear plugs are supplied. I would definitely return.
