The Hotel is well located - close to the Willowbrook Shopping Centre and many good restaurants. Attached to the Hotel is the Fox and Fiddle Pub/Restaurant, which has well above average casual food and very good service.
The hotel is getting a bit tired but is very clean and well maintained. Parking is excellent and monitored by Security Personnel. Housekeeping service was excellent and the front desk staff and "free breakfast" staff were very friendly and helpful.
But, there are the trains! if you love trains or are used to living next to rail tracks near a crossing, then the middle of the night trains that seem to blow their whistles right behind the hotel won't bother you. They woke us up, but we were able to get back to sleep reasonably quickly. If you are a business person, not getting much sleep-time normally, the trains may be a more than you want to deal with.
If it was not for the trains in the middle of the night (trains not train) then this would be a great place to stay for everyone. If trains and train whistles do not bother you, then this hotel has a great deal to offer!
On balance, we enjoyed our stay!More
