I had read wonderful reviews about this hotel and was really excited to stay here with my elderly grandparents. However, there were some downsides to our stay. I was disappointed that we weren't told about the lift when checking in and my grandparents had to struggle up the stairs.
The rooms were clean and tidy, dated but characteristic and perfectly acceptable for an overnight stay.
The reception wasn't manned at all times and I did have to wait at times to speak to a member of staff. This could have been due to busy-ness as there was a wedding the day we stayed. However, staff were helpful.
The wifi wasn't working but staff did try very hard to rectify this, unfortunately I had to use the computer in the lobby as the wifi was not available. This wasn't ideal at 11pm with a noisy wedding going on in the next room.
I have read in several places that the television was supposed to be a flat screen but in room 137 it was an old fashioned box TV set- this may be important for some but I was not bothered personally.
Easy to access from the motorway and plenty of parking available, perfect for a short stop to break up a long journey. I'm not sure I would want to stay here for longer.
