We stayed here for two nights. On arrival we were pleased to find plenty of parking and the hotel looked quite nice from outside. The public areas were quite nice too and reception staff friendly. The first impression of our room wasn't great. It smelled a bit stale and looked dingy. I wasn't sure I wanted to stay there but after pulling the curtains back wider and opening the window, it seemed a bit better. (It also appeared from the hotel website that the hotel was full making a change of room impossible). The view from the window was appalling. There appeared to be some kind of air conditioning unit on a roof right outside the window which droned during the day starting up around 6am or possibly before.and continued throughout the day. The room was stiflingly hot despite there being no heating on in the room and there was only a small window which opened. The bathroom was fine although I found the taps too stiff to turn on and off. The hotel bar shutters were put down minutes before 11am despite there being 6 people in the bar area - the two staff members left without saying goodnight or saying anything to any of us - which we found strange and a bit rude. Breakfast was lovely. Lots to choose from, hot and cold. Breakfast staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, the hotel was okay. Location and parking good. less
