Minus points:- Overall the condition of this hotel is poor. We stayed for two nights (Friday and Saturday) in October. We had no hot water on the Friday we did bring this to the attention of the receptionist about 4pm, who told us the boiler had stopped working and would be fine within 15mins. No idea when it did eventually warm up we went out about 7pm after a freezing cold shower. It was hot the following morning. The bathroom floor was giving way under our feet in places. The bathroom also smelt unclean. The TV reception consisted of 3 channels with no remote satellite tv was Sky news hardly Satellite TV!!
Plus points:- The beds are clean and comfortable as are the towels etc. The room was comfortable enough for a cheap weekend get away. The Hotel was obviously going through some refurb as the builders left just after we arrived and didn't work during our stay.
Overall you do get what you pay for it's value for money but I wouldn't stay again.
