We booked this hotel as the one we usually stay at was full. However, we found our room on the 4th floor to be fairly small with a window that couldn't open and around the window the wall was mouldy. The room was also quite chilly and although the temp went up to 25, there was no warm air coming out. We mentioned this to reception who promised to send an engineer, but if he did ever arrive it didn't make the room any wamer! There are no drawers or storage in the room, just a few hangers under a shelf, no safe or iron either. On the plus side, the bathroom was excellent, very well presented and spotlessly clean. Breakfast had a reasonable choice, but all packets, machine or cartons and only eggs, sausage and beans for a hot choice.
However, we found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful so that was a plus and we may stay here again as it was very handy to the conference venue that we attended.
