......if you want a bit of peace and quiet!
Stayed here over a weekend whilst on a a course a few weeks ago.
I asked for a quiet room as I had some work to do - I was given Room 101 (I should have known!!) - it was next to the stairwell - I could hear the fire door banging shut through the night - this room was also over the front entrance - a hive of activity!! At night there were taxis and minibuses dropping people off - stags, hens, groups of men who had been to Newmarket races which is nearby - all very well inebriated! These groups also tended to congregate outside right in front of the main entrance to smoke and make a noise - not funny when you are trying to sleep.
The room itself was clean and modern - the bog standard 'no frills' chain hotel. OK for a night or two but nothing more.
Breakfast was also poor - no staff about and consequently the food buffet had not been replenished - I had to ask to get a clean plate!
The manager was quite helpful when I checked in as the agency that made my booking had faffed it up.
There's a David Lloyd Health club and Spa next door where you can pay a fee of £6 for entry to use all the facilities and they also have a nice bar area where you can get some food - I ate my evening meals here.
Free wi-fi in the lounge/bar area.
This hotel is probably a better stay mid-week when you haven't got all the rowdy mobs about on their beanos!
