After reading some negative reviews on here (1-2 Stars) we were slightly concerned about our stay, but decided to give it a go anyway. We decided to leave the car parked in the train station car park over night and as it was a bank holiday it only cost us £4. It was only a 1-2 minute walk to the hotel from the car park, and on arrival to reception we were greeted by a friendly member of staff who gave us our room key and the wifi code. We headed to the room which seemed clean and spacious. We had read reviews about smells of cannabis, and used condoms in the beds but our room seemed fine! When heading for our night out the reception staff called us a taxi which arrived in 5-10 minutes. The bar area was showing the football, had a pool table and good selection of drinks. Check out wasn't until 12 which gave us a nice bit of time to recover from a terrible hangover! Would definitely go back.
