As with nearly everyone else here, we stayed for one night en route to the ferry.
When we arrived in the evening there were still plenty of places in the car park. Checking in was hassle-free, the receptionist was friendly and efficient.
The room was modern and very clean and the temperature was fine. The bed was comfortable and there was a good selection of pillows. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate, and the shower pressure was fine.
One thing that disturbed my sleep was the light fitting over the bed. Something to do with the way it was installed meant that after switching it off, the surrounding emitted a cracking noise every few minutes until it completely cooled (which took a while).
Connecting to the wifi was annoying. Despite plastering stickers all over the place boasting about their free wifi, we were given a long code suitable for just one device. Once you've entered this, you then have to register. The whole process is a pain, especially on a tablet, and seems unnecessary.
Breakfast was adequate. If we were paying extra we would've felt slightly cheated, but included at this price it seemed OK. There was no bacon, the sausages were fine, the pastry products were a bit dry. As others have noted the small serving room means that there is a constant queue even when it's not particularly busy, it took me a while before I could go back for coffee.
