First of all, yes the hotel needs a bit of a facelift but the location is perfect. The rooms are very clean, with tv, tea and coffee making facilities and with comfortable beds. The bathroom had a bath and shower, fresh towels daily and was spotlessly clean. We had breakfast daily, the hot choice, which is self service, was very...

Just stayed in this hotel for three nights. I will start with the positives good breakfast, bed okay and pint of Guinness was good. Now the negatives. Hotel is like stepping back in time to the 1970's rooms pretty tired. Breakfast uses diluted orange juice for breakfast. The reception toilet has a code to use it. When I asked the...

First Impressions weren't the best however I checked in very late.. Besides this my room was clean and everything functional. The dated decor felt somehow fitting to Grimsby and the hotels main clientele. Unfortunately displaying a do not disturb sign did not help the several cleaners entering the room at various times in the morning.. But I cannot fault them...

I have to say when I first walked in the place looked dated, and the rooms do match this description! The wardrobe is older than me! The room is dated but in all fairness clean. The staff are friendly, and most of the food I had here was very good. Food and staff keep this place going, time to re...

The room was clean. Bed comfortable. Bathroom shower adequate. Breakfast in the morning was just OK. The orange juice was so sweet I couldn't drink it. There was plenty of food but it was barely warm even though we were there just after 8am. I would stay again as it is handy for town. It does aim to be pretentious,...
