Used for one night as somewhere to sleep, after a good few pints, then this is a just about acceptable place to stay. If you're visiting in the hope of a magical city break then you're going to be distinctly underwhelmed.
Steve, the bar man / manager / receptionist is probably a little less than happy in the role is currently finds himself in. While not rude in the slightest he isn't the cheeriest chap about and speed of service is at his pace, one that puts to bed the myth of the tortoise besting the hare - albeit we did get there in the end.....
The room was clean and tidy, but being on the first floor was very, very noisy until the bar closed. When calling home I was asked if I was sat next to a speaker. I was on the bed...... The shower was a great size, warm and with a decent amount of pressure.
The grub is poor. Baguettes that turn up as sarnies with no butter and stale bread and a breakfast that was inedible. The place is understaffed and under skilled sadly.
The location is spot on for jumping on the train as it's just a walk across the station car park.
A visit is a bit like dating me must be. An experience if you know how to laugh, if a bit disappointing in the bedroom and kitchen.....
