We stayed on a saturday night, in a 'family room' which was at the back of the hotel and cost £99. Going to bed early was our only option since we had in infant with us. Sadly the adjacent hotel was holding a very loud and raucous disco and reception, which the single glazed (and in need of replacement) windows did nothing to shield us from.
The facility was 'OK' with no blanket for the cot, and a poorly done bathroom. there were no curtains, only blinds, which did little against the noise, or 'comfort' of the room.
Credit to the night manager, who reduced our room charge by half. but I'd rather have had a quiet night in comfort than have to deal with complaining.
In short, its not what it looks like and needs an overhaul. Don't book on a saturday night, unless you get a room at the front, or are planning to be out until at least midnight.
