I stayed here for one night in a Director's Room with a jacuzzi bath (oooh) as a treat for myself. It cost £86 bed and breakfast.
The hotel looksl like it hasn't been refurbished for about 15-20 years or so. The anaglypta wallpaper is either cream or white that has got dirty. Either way it looks dirty to me.
The room itself was a very good size (about 70% larger than a standard average hotel room) with a big TV. It only had a double bed and that wasn't all that great - it was in need of a new matress and probably complete replacement. The furnishings were functional but very dated.
The jacuzzi bath was great - one of those corner ones - only big enough for one but still fine, even though the bathroom decor was like the decor elsewhere - dated. If you can look past this, then you'd enjoy the hotel.
The breakfast was fine. Buffet style and the usual choices for English brekky - they had black pudding which is always a good sign. Again, the restaurant feels dated.
If you like your hotels to be up to the minute, then this is probably a 1 or 2 blob place. If these things don't bother you, or reflect your home style, then you'll probably love this place. I'm giving them a 2 blob for not spending money on refurbishing the place recently.
