I stayed here on business - but not by choice.
I have to say the conference facilities are very good - basic but good.
However, I stayed overnight the night before - it felt like I was the only one staying in the hotel.
On arrival at reception I had to ring a bell to get someone's attention! Very B&B!
As I have mentioned in other reviews I have three simple criteria to review a hotel on;
1 - Do they provide wifi
2 - Can they provide an iron
3 - Can they poach an egg
i - they do provide wifi - but unfortunately it did not quite reach my room - only a few yards from the reception desk!
2 - They did produce and iron - and in good clean condition
3 - The poached egg at breakfast took 30 minutes to produce and could have been used by the winter Olympic team as an ice hockey puck! After a recook - I had waited a full 45 minutes until a reasonably poached egg arrived - and I was the only one in the dining room!
I would have no real complaints if this was a reasonably priced hotel - that is reasonable considering what you get.
What I got was a room near an airport runway - but not near the airport building. A plumbing system that kept me awake. Water stained carpets throughout and catering to be ashamed of.
I would have thought £20 would have been enough (after all I did get an iron!) but £60 was just just taking the rinse!
