I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and used their booking system - got a double bed last minute on Expedia for a very good price. The room is immaculate and looks very newly decorated (although does not have that chemical newly decorated smell). The room is well laid out without excess items. Not paintings on the walls. Who's amount of space, wardrobe (this is where your kettle and tea is hiding) has a hairdryer in it. Desk, mirror, bedside tables. Not sure if it is just me, but it took me ages to find the bedside light switch (look for a black on-off switch below the brass box fitting) and the snake reading light (switch on far side of snake). Flat screen TV. Bedding crisp and white (we were afraid to eat our takeaway on it for fear of staining, so had a picnic on the floor...)
The bathroom was very clean and new looking. Nice to have a heated towel rail.
Walls and doors are a bit thin. We could hear others in the hallway and adjacent rooms (so only giving a 'very good'), but overall the hotel is very quiet.
Free parking is nice. We parked in the front and there doesn't seem to be a huge amount of spaces - possibly more in the back?
Staff was friendly and helpful.
I always look to see if hotels are being energy efficient and love to see solar panels, energy efficient bulbs, and notes suggesting I don't waste towels to create unnecessary washing (no really, I do and will always stay at Eco accommodation over competition given the chance). That said, it would be nice if they used energy saving bulbs (ceiling lights look to be halogen and bedside are not energy efficient either), had solar panels (I didn't see any), and possibly turned off the televisions so that they don't use 'standby' energy. Simple changes that could make a big difference.
Overall, our stay was very pleasant and I would recommend this hotel to anyone, including families, needing to stay in the area. We would come again, but hopefully by then they will be Eco ;) less
