“Basic”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

We stayed here on a Saturday night, we were given a groundfloor room ,looking over the carpark. The room was basic but had all of the facilities you would need. It was clean but the bed was quite hard and squeaky. We were at the back of the hotel so it was quite quiet with no noise from the road. The receptionist was friendly. I wouldn't give it the four star that it says it is rated as the décor is plain and as I said the rooms are basic.
The price was fairly cheap, however I have stayed in places cheaper that had slightly more character. Although, it was enough for what we needed and would probably return if we needed somewhere to stay in the area.

Very friendly & helpful staff, booked us a taxi for the evening no problem. Lovely little cosy room, very clean everything you need for an overnight stay. Perfect location, only a ten minute drive to the motorpoint arena, £6.50 in a taxi very reasonable. Would certainly stay here again great value for money!

Stayed here one night for family birthday party, the lady on reception was really friendly and helpful, made us feel welcome. The room was clean, beds comfortable and it also had a lovely big powerful shower. The leisure club was an added bonus, and we went in the pool twice, loved it. (staff friendly here too, even found me a car boot to go to on the Sunday morning). Very good value would recommend to others and would also return again.

Stayed here while on business.

The looks on the photo are deciving as when you approach it looks less flattering! Was 'welcomed' by a lady who was stinking of fags and clearly did not want to be there.

Was shown to my room which was not the cleanest. No working TV, no working AC, no fans. Main problem was noise. The window had to stay open all night cos of the heat, the traffic on the main road is bad. Also, there isnt much soundproofing between the rooms.

At night, the hotel staff changed to a grumpy man who looked like he was a bouncer. Again, he would be better suited in another trade where they didnt have to be polite.

Was happy to leave in the morning.

We first stopped at this hotel back in January, 2013 during heavy snowfalls, and although we had a 'small' problem of being flooded out by a doddery old guy on floor above leaving taps running, were addressed very professionally by staff member, Leanne. We told her then it would not deter us from returning so, here we are!!!!!!!!!!!
