I found this place without problem although parking was more of an issue. The hotel says free parking, however there is only extremely limited onsite parking. I ended up having to park in a nearby multi-storey car park that cost £10.00 for the night. I have some mobility difficulties and although it is only a short walk, it wasn't a good start to my stay.
I was welcomed at reception by the friendly receptionist, the check in process was efficient and I was offered two access codes for the wi-fi. The immediate impression however, was that this was a very tired hotel, it is in urgent need of refurbishment (this is however currently underway).
I took the lift to my second floor room, but this was the only time I used the lift. Again it is fairly ancient, but the most worrying aspect was that the floor of the lift has some definite "give" in it, most disconcerting!
Through a maze of fake wood panelled corridors , I found my room. The first thing I noticed was the stale smell of the room and I immediately opened the windows as far as they could be opened. This was a maximum of 3 inches! The windows have open restrictors on them. The room was hot, and although there is no air conditioning, a fan was provided in the room, which did nothing apart from creating a hot breeze.
The room is fairly well equipped although again, its very dated, but the room did seem clean. The bathroom is again very dated, although functional. Shower water pressure is excellent although it was almost impossible to control the temperature, no sooner had I got the temperature as I wanted it, I guess someone turned on or off their shower and the temperature of mine either went boiling hot or freezing cold.
The room backed onto one of the main roads, so was noisy all night, although that said, I did sleep ok. The bed was comfortable.
I had paid for breakfast and the selection and quality was ok.
Pro: Very friendly staff
Cons: Limited parking, very dated, noisy. less
