I stayed here for one night on business. The hotel look impressive, and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Just over 5 minutes walk from the railway station. I had not packed the plug from my ipad charger and one of the receptionists very kindly lent me hers. I ate out as the evening meals looked expensive for what they were.
I booked a double room because of negative comments about the size of the single rooms. Room 207 was a reasonable size, and had everything needed, including an iron and ironing board and spare bedding. The bed was comfy and I looked forward to a good night's sleep. Unfortunately the bin collection at 6 am put paid to that and I was unable to get back to sleep after 10. Minutes do very loud noise. I mentioned this at breakfast and checkout and was advised to ask for a room at the front in future as staff were aware of this. Looking at the number of guests at breakfast I would be surprised if all the front rooms were in use, and was annoyed to be told that 'we have asked them to be quiet'
My other gripe was the lack of wifi. There was wifi in the public areas, but the security levels were such that my work computer rejected it. There was none in the rooms, just an internet cable, for which there was an extra charge and unusable with my ipad. The log in seemed to be quite a convoluted process from the way it was described, so I gave up. I did travel in the afternoon, planning to do three hours work in the evening, so this was very annoying, and not what I would expect in a hotel that clearly has a lot of business users.
Breakfast was average, there were no eggs and I had to wait for these to be cooked. No butter, very little milk with my tea and I had to go round the tables trying to find marmalade. The bacon was excellent however.
A very average experience, largely redeemed by the friendly staff. To be honest, I probably would have had a similar quality stay in a premier inn or similar.
