Stayed here on business and have stayed in several Quality hotels without issue unfortunately this one was more 'interesting'.
The car park is very snug and was not fun to park in. Staff were very helpful and friendly and offered to carry my bag but as I was on the first floor I carried it myself. The room had two beds and was quite small. Everything was clean but the room certainly needs some attention. The television was wall mounted with the wires all hanging down underneath, the curtains had broken hooks so hung off a little. The sash window opened and I had a great view of a wall just a few feet away which made the room very dark.
The bed was comfortable and I slept well. I found the shower challenging, although that could have been just me - I got it going ok and the pressure was good but I just could not figure out how to turn it off and ended up having to ring reception. A friendly young man arrived within a couple of minutes and turned it off.
I didn't try the breakfast so can't comment on that. Getting out of the car park wasn't as hairy as I had feared but I think that was because I left quite early.
Overall, it did the job but I wouldn't recommend it and I wouldn't stay again. No issue with the staff, cheerful and helpful.
