Very very clean. Staff were friendly. Good location. Good price. Breakfast was average. Quick and painless check in and out. Nice building. Squirrels in the grounds. Pretty much what youd expect......... more

Horrible rooms and unpleasant food.

The hotel rooms here are massively overpriced for what you get, with the whole site desperately in need of an overhaul. Worse still is the food, the selection of which was awful and the portions tiny... more

I'm sorry but due to the nature and content of this review and the fact it is your first I don't believe it is a genuine one, your comments are broad, generic and simply not true. If they are I would be happy to discuss with you.

Fine for a drink maybe but stay elsewhere

I'll start by explaining I work away from home every week and stay in many types of hotel from Travelodge through to 5* hotels. I have a fair idea of a well run hotel and what constitutes good service... more

Thank you for your comments which i do find rather odd. As you can appreciate from time to time the hotel has to carry out maintenance work, the corridors of the bedroom accommodation were due for decorating which started at the weekend prior to your stay, we try to do work when we are quiet but this was going to take several days. As a hotel we never close and are open 24hrs a day. A low odour water based emulsion paint was selected and work began. We do not use varnish and would not allocate a newly decorated room to any guest until the normal pain smell had subsided. I entered the room as did the duty manager and could barely notice any smell. As you have said the hotel was full on the night in question, this was the only complaint we had regarding the smell of paint. During the afternoon when guests have left for the day we do not man the bar all day but we do have s service call button so we know should there be a customer that requires service. Thank you.
