The main reason for us choosing this hotel was because of its close proximity to the sport/tennis centre which i needed to get to early one morning for a course, so for that it was well placed. The car park is small, very small in fact but honestly i dont think they often have the number of guests to fill it. the welcome was nice and friendly and the hotel in general is quite clean. The rooms are adequate, they come equipped with what you need. Our main problem with the room is that the bathroom is very small, has a shower and a toilet, and if you try and dry yourself after a shower in the bathroom you just end up hitting the wall many a time because of the lack of space. and the sink is located in the room which is really annoying and just doesn't seem right. the decor is quite dated and it is quite old in general. i dont mind old decor in some hotels and squeaky floor boards so this doesnt bother me but some people may have a problem with it. Another issue is one for the cleaners, upon opening the wardrobe we found a large empty vodka bottle, which we have left for them to find it for themselves, but i dont think that they should have missed that. the rooms are all single glazed so it is quite noisy. Also, they have central heating on in all of the rooms for most of the day which is good in a way, but it doesnt go off until 11pm, and you cant turn the radiators down so it gets very hot, which also disturbs your sleep because it is quite an unbearable heat. the breakfast is nice, not much of a selection but the portions are nice and large to fill you up. And the price overall for the hotel is fairly reasonable. overall, it was adequate for our needs but in general i wouldnt choose to come here again.
