The hotel is round the corner to the station and the the town centre is a stones throw away. Excellent location!
Rooms: The beds are a nice size, too big for single but not quite a double. The toilet and bathroom in my room were separate l. One bed was very close to the bathroom so slighty awkward to go on there without disturbing person in that bed. Tiny wardrobe for two people to share! The rooms are very clean and ours had a both bath and a separate shower.
The hotel staff were friendly. There's a wii and an xbox for free use. In the brealfast area there are twk dining tables with tvs and headphones.
Breakfast was a buffet so a good way for you to decide what and how much you want. The continental breakfast has cereals, fruits, yoghurts, pastries, juices and tea/coffee. Breakfast was included for our booking but I noticed the price for this, which I felt was extortionate, at £16.45 and to make this worse you could upgrade to include a fry up for £3 extra! If you aren't prepared for pay this, there are lots of cafes and restaurants around.
The swimming pool was lovely. Not massive but also has a sauna and steam room. They kindly provide towels for swimmers so no need to bring your own.
I can't comment on the pricing of the hotel as it was part of a pre-paid hen package.
