A very poorly signposted car park, to the extent that there are no signs at all until you are driving in to it did not provoke the best of moods on arrival. However, check in at the bar was quick and easy and we were initially pleasatly surprised with our room. At a very quick glance the room is large and had a balcony over looking the market town, the bed is clean and we can ignore the stains, peeling paint and old bathroom (its just for one night after all).
I had taken note of previous reviews recommending that the rooms at the rear of the hotel are given a wide berth because of noise, unfortunately although our room was at the front (purely by chance) I hardly slept a wink. I don't think the hard, lumpy pillows helped but the constant noice was beyond a joke. The noise from the road was bad enough, double glazing may be an idea to reduce the sounds of lorries deliverying in the early hours and general traffic?! There was also a couple of lads banging on the front door after hours to be let in and what sounded like a heavy trolley being wheeled around outside in the hallway and in the rooms above. Horrendous night,
The service at breakfast was fine and the full english was acceptable, although my opinion of this is probably tarnished due to my lack of sleep. I would not stay here again if the need arose and would advise others to think twice.
