I stayed here with my 2 young children for 2 nights as we wanted to go to a zoo nearby. The hotel staff are brilliant. Everyone is polite and friendly and very helpful. The hotel however was a disappointment. The rooms are very small and not very clean. I was quite surprised at the state of the floor before my children had added to it. The Bath mat which I think was once supposed to be blue was actually black and so I could not risk using it and there was a smell of sewage coming from the sink evety time the WC was flushed. I was a little disappointed that after a coffee spillage on my bed in the evening the hotel didn't actually change the covers or sheets the next day and merely made up the bed. Therefore, we unfortunately slept on stained sheets the second night, but as I had come down with a bug that day the coffee stains were furthest from my mind. I definitely wouldn't stay there again unless it gad been refurbished.
