My wife and I stayed here because it was conveniant for a dinner we were attending in the local Golf Club.
We arrived at 3pm on Saturday afternoon. This was the worst part of our stay. We were in a queue of 10 people waiting to check in. No problem I thought as I counted 6 different reception staff behind the counter. Big mistake only 1 was actually checking people in!!
The others just kept coming and going through the door behind reception carrying sheafs of paper and avoiding the glares of the people waiting in line.
my wife went to the desk and asked to speak to the manager. he told her quite rudely that he was very busy and so was everyone else.
When we finally got to the front of the queue and checked in, after waiting 25 minutes, the receptionist could have been more helpful. He said it was Shift changeover!! At 3pm on a Saturday!!!
We asked for a room with a bath and we were allocated Room 184. This was at the end of a corridor and very quiet.
The room was very clean and quite spacious. The bathroom was clean and had a very deep Jacuzzi bath...luxury.
I agree with previous reviews about the decor in the hallways looking tired. But our room was very well maintained.
As we were attending a dinner we did not make use of the hotel restaurant so no comment there.
I think once you can get past reception this is a good value hotel.
I would certainly stay again but arrive later or earlier than 3pm!
