We chose this hotel simply because it was the closest accommodation we could find to the friends we were visiting. It served a purpose, but wasn't special in any way. The price was high considering this.There was , however, a reasonable full breakfast included in the price, and the breakfast room staff were efficient, clearing tables and replenishing the buffet constantly. The room we had was exactly like thousands of other boring hotel rooms and I have stayed in better, paying two thirds the price, and in city centres. I'm sure it would be a very useful hotel if you were visiting a University student in the area, and we didn't have any trouble fitting the car into the car park. I thought it unusual that we paid for our stay when we checked-IN rather than when we checked-OUT, which in my experience is the norm. The room was clean and had the usual tea/coffee things but for me, the pillows were very flat and I didn't like the fact that when we arrived, the beds were arranged with the chair cushions placed on top of the pillows. Sorry, but I want to know that my pillows are pristine. I don't want them tainted by cushions that, by their very nature are sat upon/against or thrown on the floor, time and again, by countless room guests. All in all, an OK hotel, certainly, but I paid, at the end of September, £135 per night ( 2 people, twin room ) and I know I can stay in a London hotel, with reasonably fluffy pillows (!) and far more facilities, for under £100 per night.
