Please don't be deluted that this place is a worthy of any acclaim- you are almost better of sleeping in the train station.
I arrived early evening and there was nowhere to park- staff gave me some confusing information about where to find a public car park which has happy to receive me at a cost of 6 pounds per day (which is not too bad but it is an extra).
The corridor leading to my room smell of something I cannot specify but was nevertheless unpleasant. I entered a small cold room whose carpet was dirty, there was missing paint from the bathroom door and the telephone cables were exposed. I put the heating on and headed to the restaurant.
The restaurant is a place where food is served after being reheated- I ordered the pizza and can honestly say it was disgusting in every way ( texture, taste)- I saw placentas in the operating theatre who looked more appetising.
As far as prices where concerned were ridiculous - almost £4 for a bowl of soggy chips is a joke.
So it is a run down, smelly, almost hazardous and very expensive hotel- if you have a choice, you are better off avoiding it.
