The dated 70s/80s decor should have set alarm bells ringing immediately. Things didn't improve when we checked into our room unfortunately - the bathroom was incredibly dated, the shower head wouldn't stay in place, the windows could not be opened and, worst of all, the bathroom door didn't even close enough to offer any privacy whatsoever.
Our room was also facing the main road (and it is a very busy main road) and felt like an earthquake was shaking the hotel to its very foundations whenever a big lorry would drive past (and the lorries would drive past very regularly).
The only saving grace was the breakfast which was very nice in fairness, and the menu did offer a good variety of hot breakfast choice. This was also slightly marred by a waitress who seemed surprised and a little put off by the fact that we arrived down for breakfast at half 9 (breakfast service finishes at 10) and loud discussions between herself and who I assume was her boss, which could be heard by everyone in the dining room. A bit unprofessional from both of them if you ask me.
Anyway, I'm normally laid back and pretty low maintenance when it comes to hotels but I really can't recommend this one based on the price we paid for it. Best to look elsewhere.
