We arrived very early at the hotel (about 11am) and my husband popped in to find out when we would be able to check in. The guy he spoke to was very helpful and said that although our room was still being cleaned, we were welcme to check in right away, leave our bags in the room and our car in the car park. He gave us our keys and said the cleaning would be finished in about half an hour and we would be welcome to return then.
When we did return to the room we found it was a good size and it appaered that the walls and woodwork had been painted very recently. The decor was a little dated, featuring a range of contrasting patterns, but the bed was comfortable (although we would have preferred a duvet to the rather elderly looking blanket.) and both bedroom and shower room were clean. The shower was good, with plenty of hot waer available. Our room was at the side of the hotel overlooking the car park, but was not too noisy. The view was not great, but we weren't bothered by that.The windows are double-glazed and the curtains blacked out the street lights.
We were fairly early for breakfast and hot drinks and cooked food of our choice was promply served by a very pleasant young waitress. Cereals, juices and fresh fruit were also available and extra drinks and toast were offered.
Other than the man seen on the first day and the breakfast waitress, we didn't see any other staff throughout our stay, which seemed a bit strange, but cleaning was done very adequately by someone in our absence. We had a key to the front door so let ourselves in and out. There was a lounge, but we didn't use it and the menu for evening meals was rather restricted, so we ate out.
This hotel is clean, comfortable and has its own style, which may not be to everyone's taste. However, our stay there was fine, The hotel is conveniently situated, the price seemed reasonable and we will stay there again.
