I stayed for 2 nights and felt that the Hotel and it's staff were great value for money, and having shopped around for the best deals, this Hotel was about the cheapest.
It's bright, airy, minimalistic and very modern, staff were very helpful and attentive, booking and payment was quick and easy.
Breakfast is a large tasty hot/cold buffet type but a few extra items on the menu (mushrooms, hash browns and vegetarian sausages), would'nt have gone amiss, oh yes the auto toasters cremate the bread.
The room itself is functional & practical rather than homely and comfort laden, the bathroom area (which has a small screen seperating the shower from the toilet) is well lit and practical but a lip or something for the showe would've made sense, as it is when you have a shower the water goes everywhere.
Downers: For a very modern hotel the television is totally and utterly pants, pixelation and no signal was the norm during my stay and even though a very helpful member of staff rebooted the tv, pixelation returned shortly afterwards.
Parking especially when the Hotel's busy is a complete and utter joke - beware all those that try to drive/reverse down in front of the hotel, there is a tiltable bollard, made of heavy metal (not rubber, as it should be), which does'nt happen to be lit at night, it cracked my bumper, a sunken footpath leading up to it does'nt help. I'd like to see some kind of sign that says if either of the car parks are full or not, anyone going to either of the car parks in a large 4X4 etc are going to struggle (it's tight at the best of times).
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for good value for money and that does'nt want to watch tele and that drives a g-wiz.
