I stay in Best western hotels all over the country and as a diamond elite card holder I think I know a good hotel to an average one. I chose this hotel due to the location I needed for work and that it was listed as a plus. It says newly refurbished rooms, well according to the staff it was last year, they also look very dated. The rooms are also very small, and cold. The bathroom is especially cold with a tile floor and almost no heat from the radiator. If you need a shaving point forget it here. The bathroom had dirt / gunge under the shower screen seal which needed cleaning, also if you are 6ft you will need to duck to get under the fixed shower head. The hotel staff are friendly and try their best. I planned to stay four nights bust cancelled after 2 as its far from the best western plus standard. I'm still looking for the reason why it has been awarded that grade. It has no redeeming factors, it looks like a typical motel that has had some building work done to place a covered walkway in front of the old room doors. Yes the reception and bar has had some work done, but covering a burnt cake in icing doesn't make it a show winner.
Would I stay again, would I recommend it, well if you like travel lodge the answer is yes, otherwise forget it. Its well overpriced for the standard expected for the price paid.
