Well i went here with my two friends for a quick night away.It was easy to find and the location was just off the high Street.Not alot of parking so i would recommend getting there early.We arrived at 1.30pm on Saturday the 17 May and headed to the reception.We were greated by the friendly receptionist who was more than helpful with the questions we had.The reception was well decorated in a modern style and chairs for guests.It was clean and tidy and had lots of local info for longer stays with ideas for discovering the area.Our room was on the second floor and as there was no lift this was quite a hike.I would not recommend this for anyone with walking difficulties.I found it a bit to much as i suffer with knee problems.We arrived at our room and was surprised to find a good size room with three single beds.The floor was laminated there was ample modern furniture for your clothes too.There was a large flat screen tv with freeview with a great reception.The bathroom was large and contained a full size bath and a powerful shower over the bath.Ample towels and free toiletries.We unpacked and headed down stairs to check out the lounge and restaurant.There was a very trendy bar lounge with nice white leather seating in the center along with clean tidy bistro style seating around the lounge area.We ordered a main meal for dinner and there was a good choice on the menu.The staff were easy to spot as they all had a uniform on and they were very attentive throughout.Later in the evening the tables in this area are re arranged as there is an in house disco/nightclub that starts around 8pm.This gets very busy around 10.30/11pm and it closes around 2am.It is very loud and caters for all age groups but there were a lot of 20-30 year old's so if your in for a relaxing Saturday night your in the wrong place.It was hard to get to the bar at this time due to the amount of people but the bar staff were again very efficient.The floor can get wet due to spillage of drinks so be careful .If you smoke where was a large well decorated decking area with modern rattan tables and seating for you to use with plenty of ashtrays.On returning to our room we found our internal room extremely hot but the reception staff were only to happy to get us a fan for the room.The beds were comfortable and we all slept well.In the morning we enjoyed a free continental breakfast with several cups of tea/coffee.We would recommend this hotel to older/younger groups Monday to Friday and younger 18/ 40 age group who love to party on a Friday and Saturday night.We are 45 plus year old's but we had a great time and would go back again but if your not into the night club scene or loud music then avoid a |Saturday night but if that's what your looking for then this is the place to go .The only thing i could say negatively about this hotel is that in the hallways there is a damp smell but i dose not follow into the rooms id recommend they change the carpet which was clean but must have gotten wet at some point .
