“Watch out...thieves working here... take good care of valuables”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

The first impression of the hotel wasn't great..it does look dodgy from outside. However, the rooms seemed fairly clean. Nice bathroom too... bed is okay..but..! I did not have to wait long for a great disappointment...
When i returned to my room on the second day of my stay i found that my German phone charger and my video camera ( a very good model, expensive..) had been gone. I reported to the hotel staff, they were not willing to get police involved until the next morning...but admitted that only hotel staff with a certain "master key card" can access the room. So it must have been the cleaning staff...
Police checked the following day and approved of that statement...
So please never leave any valuable stuff in this hotel, not even in your case !!!!

I can NOT recommend this hotel...

My family stayed at this hotel on the 6th of January for 1 night. The rooms are very basic and the food was awful in the restaurant we had a set menu which was on offer and all 6 of us were not happy. On the plus side the parking is good it's quite a tightly spaced car park but the cars were undamaged after a 12 day period.

Stayed at this hotel due to having an early morning flight. The hotel is very basic but our room was clean and had everything we needed for the one night. I found the mattress to rather firm and not very comfortable. On sight free parking which is a plus. Check in was quick and easy. For £29 I can not complain.

Due to an issue at my house, I needed somewhere to stay for 10 nights that was close to both my place of work and my house. This hotel fit the bill perfectly, in that it was halfway between the 2.
Food was of a good standard, staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
All in all, my only issues were the beds being too hard for my liking and the water not being exactly hot for showers.
But, should I have need of a hotel again, despite the internet connection not extending to the rooms, I would use this hotel again.

Booked this hotel by mistake i thought i'd booked the Britannia Country House. First impressions were not great, but it did get better. Parking was under cover which in January is a plus as we have come home before to find the car covered in snow. The room was small but adequate for a hotel stop over. The bar was a nice space and the staff were friendly and helpful.They did turn the tv over for a guest who wantef to watch on of the soaps. We ordered room service of pizza and chips, alittle over priced but it was hot and tasted fine. The transfer to the airport was by taxi it took less time than expected and was alot better than a bus that stops at every hotel on the way. Would stay again.
