Was there with friends before the Christmas period. Stayed for 3 wonderful nights and ate dinner twice there. There was a young German boy, Jurgen who served us each night and was a joy to talk to. My friend told me he looks like the Liverpool manager. His English was good, sometimes unclear but never messed up our order! Jurgen...

Booked in for gala new year's eve event. This turned out to be a few elderly couples doing slow line dancing shuffles to prerecorded music. No gala extras or entertainment. Food at evening meal in restaurant was reheated, bland and dry. At breakfast time you were required to make your own toast, for which you had to queue. On retiring...

Not really sure how this hotel is rated as 4 star. The location is great and the staff are very helpful but unfortunately that is where it ends. The rooms are old, smell bad and are cold, the same goes for the corridors, bar and dining room. Brown water came out of the shower in our room when it was...

Usually reviews are easy to write. A criticism isn't. Upon arriving at this hotel, it was made very clear I was not a priority. Receptionist barely looked at me while she fed her kid (at the desk) chips and ketchup. I asked where was suitable to lock up my bicycle (I'm not picky, just didn't want to get in people's...

After a not so great stay earlier on in the year and after a nice gesture from management, we returned for another stay to the Great Northern. Well, what can I say, we were given a recently renovated room and wow......it was fab! I actually thought I was in a different hotel to the one I stayed in before. The...
