A good hotel that is warm and welcoming. Staff are always helpful and kind The room was comfy and generally well kept. There were however a few things that I wasn’t impressed with; 1) ice bucket - if you’re going to have amenities as such; ensure they are clean and fully serviceable. E.g. clean and have a lid and tongs. 2) odd stains on curtains; very notice and could probably be removed via steam and a rag. 3) TV not working; after calling reception, maintenance were sent up and changed the TV to a working set. Could possibly have been tested when the room was made up from previous customers. 4) wine glasses are a nice touch but it baffles me as to how many hands they went through and Mindy noticed that they were still dirty. 5) although linen was clean and fresh; attention to detail is key! If linen is well used and washed regularly, it’s understandable that it may rip or tear in places however, I don’t know many people that would have put ripped linen on their own bedding at home so I wouldn’t expect to have it at a hotel, especially when paying for it. 6) my friend’s room also had some other issues that needed rectifying including a bathroom light that wouldn’t turn on and having wrappers from previous clients in the dresser. After speaking to reception, his room was changed and there were no further problems. All in all; a comfortable and enjoyable stay which would be well suited to families and those who just need a basic place to rest.

The breakfast was the best I have ever had in a hotel. The staff were Lovely and the rooms were spacious and modern. My only problem is with the bed, it was the hardest I have ever slept on. Unfortunately the whole point of a hotel is to sleep there so I won't be returning despite everything else being perfect.

The room smelt of cigarette smoke. Shower was hopeless and the safe didn't work. At night, although in a family room, we had to deal with the noise of drunks singing and shouting outside by the main entrance, as well as the constant hum of the factory across the road - it never stops. Hairs in the bed were unwelcome and a general feeling of not being very clean. The response was to offer us £12 off the breakfast, which itself was nothing to write home about!
