There is plenty of parking and the hotel is approx half a mile out of the town centre.
I thought wi-fi would be free (as in most hotels these days) - not so - this is another greedy hotel which uses BT Openzone, and thinks its fine to sting you £10 for an evenings use.
After a long walk through about four corridors, I eventually arrived at my room and was not impressed by the mouldy grouting around the bath. The bed was hard as boards and the pillows not much softer.
The tv was fine with lots of channels, and the cooked breakfast was nice enough.
A lot of staff are East European, and their grasp of English isn't necessarily as good as you think. I asked the male receptionist for a receipt on leaving (I pre-paid my room through Last Minute.Com) and he then charged me a second time and produced a receipt for the second charge!
There are tired parts of the hotel which need a good refurb, but it did look and smell like the decorators were doing a bit of this.
