We took our two young children here for two nights in the run up to Easter. I found it through a comparison website for £45 for two nights for a family of four people. It was too cheap an offer to pass by, but so cheap that we were a bit worried about what we'd get!
We needn't have worried - the hotel, although showing its age in the as yet un-refurbished part of the building that we were in, was nice and clean. Our beds, a double and a pair of bunks, were dressed in nice, crisp, clean white bed linnen. I found this to be quite reassuring as so many cheap hotels use horrible multicoloured bed linnen that makes it almost impossible to tell whether or not it's clean.
The staff were all very polite and helpful - a simple query made at the reception desk, which was fully answered by the receptionist, was followed-up by a knock on the door by the maintenance manager five minutes later who just wanted to make sure everything was OK.
We had breakfast at the hotel on the first morning which I thought was good value at £6.50 per adult for a continental and english breakfast. I recommend the scrambled eggs too - probably the best I've had anywhere.
So while I wouldn't recommend this hotel for a luxury break, it was a very clean, reliable and great value hotel for a short break with the family.
