My wife and I stayed in the hotel over Christmas, we wanted a nice relaxing break but got the complete opposite! The hotel had no heating and when we requested it we got a small plug in heater! there was no hot water and the bed covers were far to thin for winter! We didn't expect all our meals to be a buffet...never mind Christmas dinner!! The only course that got brought to our table was pudding on Christmas dinner which would have been better of left in the kitchen!

We stayed here for one night as part of a National Holidays weekend. Parts of the hotel are tired and in need of a refurb but was incredibly clean and the beds were really comfortable. The food was tasty and plentiful. Our evening meal was a carvery with a choice of freshly carved turkey and/or gammon. The restaurant staff were efficient but non intrusive and did an amazing job considering how many people were staying in the hotel that evening.. Each coach was given a meal time and even though there were several coach parties staying that evening we didn't feel rushed. The same went for breakfast the next morning. Excellent food and service.

Although there were obvious decorative faults these were purely cosmetic and considering how little we paid I'm amazed that it was as nice as it was.

Stayed here 1 night prior to our holiday, and was a bit worried what we had let ourselves in for.

Reception was very good, soon in our room which ..,Yes was a little tired but very comfortable.

Evening meal was very good quality & plenty of it. There were a lot of coach trips in when we were there but by eating at 8pm they had all finished, restaurant was almost empty.

Car parking for 14 nights was not very secure (open car park) , but we had no problems.

I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and a friend on a National Express break. the hotel is drab and tired but our rooms were very clean and warm. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for baths and showers. A kettle was provided and free wi fi in the lounge was a bonus. Unfortunately the main doors kept jamming open which meant the lounge got very cold.
meals were adequate but basic, but as we had paid such a small amount for the trip we really couldn,t complain. The hotel is not well placed, nearest bus stop and shops are a good 15 minutes walk away but this hardly mattered as we were on tours each day.
I would stay again if the price was right.

Room Tip: They seem to be refurbishing from the top down so it might pay to ask for a room on a higher floor...

My wife and I stayed for one night on the 7th December, having attended a wedding in Coventry, It was the coldest night we have ever had in an hotel, there was no heating at all in the room, and the staff were most unhelpful to our request to have some form of heat, we being both in our 80's.
I would advise anyone staying there to take a hot water bottle, and wear warm clothes.

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at this hotel. A group of friends met for a weekend away, we found the staff extremely helpful, they all did their utmost to look after us and made us feel welcome.I do not know the names of all who were so helpful, but feel all the staff deserve praise for their hard work over the weekend of 22nd - 24th of November 2013. I would like to give special thanks to the bar staff, David and Kayleigh, who looked after our group so well.
