“A bit average”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

When you find yourself craving for a Premier Travel Inn (which are fine because they deliver what you expect and are reasonably priced), then you probably know you're not in a great B&B/Hotel.
Choice of watching the 14" TV (!) or boiling the kettle was interesting (not enough sockets in the right place). 1990's decor in the rooms, cold service by rather cheerless staff, and noisy at night (not much soundproofing from other occupants slamming doors and getting in late at night) means I'll stay elsewhere next time.
The lack of "was everything OK for you?" at check-out was a little telling...

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere(!)

Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

My room was basic but clean, comfortable and quiet and I had a good nights sleep.

The staff are friendly and well presented if not a bit "functional" in how they go about their business.

Breakfast was good with a selection of cereals and cooked breakfast on offer.

It's not a romantic place to stay (it could benefit from a bit of a face lift) but if you're after a place to rest your head for a night or so whilst on business then it's fine.

Reviewed 3 February 2014

Overnight stay B&B & evening meal. Hotel basic but comfortable & clean. Evening meal average. Breakfast & service very good. The bedroom (Room 15) was spacious & clean but just little things a miss like no socket near bed for mobile phone for alarm as clock in room not working. Cold water tap in bathroom screeched when you put it on. Radiator wouldn't turn off so room too hot at night for me but most annoying tiny TV that was intermittent kept having to turn it on & off to get any station. The staff were very nice & accommodating.

Room Tip: Room 15 forget if you want to watch TV in your room
