“Just simple not so smart”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

This place is definitely in need of a makeover. I stayed in the ironing board room , no cupboards etc so the ironing board is just propped up in a corner of the room. Only place to hang your clothes was 4 coathangers on a tiny rail by the tv on the wall. The bed was hard and lumpy, carpet stained and walls scuffed. No shaver point either. Rooms at the front of the hotel are noisy as the hotel is close to the very busy main road. Parking is very diffcult.
Reception area ok and staff friendly and helpful.

It's reasonably cheap but I wouldn't recommend it.

Service is good but the place needs a bit of TLC. It's pretty basic stuff but given it's relatively cheap then my expectations weren't that high.

I've stopped here a few times and it's passable but not much more. Parking is a bit of a pain too.
