I stayed here for a 2 night stay in October 2013. The hotel is ok, but could do with a bit if maintenance and upgrading to be a half-decent 4* - was more like a reasonable 3*. It was quite busy when I was there (half term holidays) and breakfast staff seemed over-stretched.
My main issue (and warning) is the speed bumps at all entrances to the car park. My car "grounded" on every single one of them, causing over £300 damage to the undertray. According to the management, the speed bumps are "legal" and no-one else has complained but, as there is nowhere else to park and the speed bumps are at every entrance and also in between sections, of the car park, it is impossible to park a car without it being damaged. When I arrived and parked up, the receptionist told me that he had heard the same thing from lots of people.
There was nothing special about this hotel, so I won't be staying again. I wouldn't want to risk damaging my car again.
Avoid unless you have a 4x4.
