Only stayed once on my many trips to the area. Had a noisy room that is not well sound proved. Not a great choice for dinner other at the hotel or nearby. Breakfast was poor if I am honest and I would only stay here as a last resort.

Stayed here for one night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only problem we had was that at first we were given a room on the bottom floor (room 14) and when we stepped into the room, a strong smell of cigarette smoke hit us.
