I've stayed here several times over the years and despite the relatively low score, it would still be my first choice in the area because you know what you are going to get.
It is a large 1970s built establishment and some of its architecture gives away its age - long corridors meeting in a central cross and perhaps limits opportunities to refurbish. The rooms are a little small by modern standards - a double bed, a small dressing table and just a couple of feet space all around. However, it is clean and in good decorative order, if a little dated. The carpets in the public areas are interesting - showing all that was bad in the 70s. They cannot be original, so full marks to the owners for commissioning replacements!!
We did find the bed uncomfortable and a little small - Queen or King size beds seem to be the norm now, but this was a standard and it seemed quite short as well. It was not particularly comfortable being quite sagging in the middle.
It's easy to find, there is plenty of parking, the staff are friendly and with a bit of a makeover, it could be quite stunning.
Only had breakfast,served in a cavernous dining room from a hot buffet that was regularly refreshed. less
