I only stayed for one night, but the place was easy to find and park and the staff were fantastic throughout which made the visit very pleasant. The corridors were being painted so I guess the place is going though a referb of some kind. The restaurant service was fast, efficient and the food was of good basic quality. Again,...

Standard Holiday Inn. Our room was located on the 1st floor. No lift so we had to hoof our baby buggy up a flight of stairs! The room itself was clean and the bathroom had been recently renovated. This hotel had the added bonus of a gym and swimming pool, which we made use of. The pool was clean.

Maybe this is a nice spot in the summer but the design, and possibly a faulty door, meant that on a very, very cold night and morning in early January the reception area, bar and dining room just felt cold. The staff on reception were nice and the room was fine but, based on our experience, I would not choose...

Myself and my partner stayed over for one night last week as we travelled down to the area to go out the next day. Booking was very cheap and only £10 for breakfast so we were not expecting an amazing experience. The lady greeting us on entry was very friendly and informative. Our room was nice and clean and simple,...

Stayed for a night while on business having last stayed here 4 years ago. They've given some of the rooms a facelift but my executive room didn't feel like a premium experience. Public areas looked as tired as ever especially the bar/restaurant which was also cold. The menu is very basic and traditional, essentially pub food and I don't mean...

Had comfortable Excutive room with lovely big shower. We were offered choice bath or shower. Used restaurant for dinner and lunch. Good children menu. Food fine. Friendly helpful staff. Only problem was heater in pool not working 26 on Saturday but enjoyed pool and jacquzi. Had late check out. Will definitely use again.
