1. Nice little hotel, staff were very friendly, polite and courteous. Came as quite a big group and booked us in quickly and efficiently.
2. Room itself was very nice, clean, bed comfortable, TV, tea/coffee, quite small but for 1/2 people its fine.
3. Bathroom clean and nice, power shower, modern and had everything you'd normally expect
4. Adjoining bar/restaurant is nicely done up, country pub kind of look. Food looked decent.
5. Asked to buy some bottles of wine at the front desk at 3am.. Night porter said the bar was locked but managed to rustle up a bottle which he donated for free. Great Customer Service! Bravo to this man!
6. Big car-park and has CCTV, looks safe place to park the car.
7. Free WIFI.
1. Came as a group of 20, the restaurant struggled to cope with this many people at breakfast, not enough food was laid out and this led to a wait. It Doesn't appear that a great number of people stay over and come down for breakfast. Despite undoubtedly knowing how many guests are staying...
2. The bar closes at 11pm... including Fridays and Saturdays. What??!!
3. No Safety Deposit Box, Room key is an actual key which you have to lug around, no modernization here.. for a travel lodge.
Overall would I book again? Yes because I think its the only hotel in the area, its grand, its comfortable and does the job. But its nothing to write home about.
