Needs an overhaul

Posted 14-Feb-2015
We have stayed here several times simply because it is close to my Dads house. The rooms are dated and the bathrooms definitely need an overhaul. The heating goes off around 11pm and doesn't come on until morning. The tv is very old and doesn't even have all of the free view channels. Limited choice of lager/ beer and it didn't taste nice at all. Parking is definitely a problem in the evening. We only ever stay for one night and can put up with it for that but wouldn't want to stay longer.

Only if you have to be in the area

It is hard to understand how so little effort can be made on basic things like smiling staff, checking that rooms are properly cleaned etc. I got a "can't ignore it" price but next time they would have the give it away. Don't get me wrong, it's not ghastly. Just you wouldn't want to pay much for such a charmless experience. And I thought smoking was banned in all workplaces. Not in this hotel. Maybe that's the clue - no one considers it a place of work, not even the staff.

Pros: The staff & the outside/surrounding area. Nice walk into the town through the back of the car park.
Cons: Would need many $million investment and a miracle...
Look like Britannia Hotels think that a lick of paint counts as refurbishment to 50 year old room d├ęcor. Come on Britannia - CRT TV's, Corby Trouser press? Nowadays travellers want comfort and space - the desk wasn't big enough for a laptop with the enormous lamp on it, but the very poor internet made it pointless anyway. Shower not working, creaking from the above floor means you wake up whenever they do (05:30 in my case). Oh, and the further from the main reception/bar area you get, the stronger the smell of damp/cigarettes becomes.

Once Great now ok

Look....this could be a superb hotel. Location and building all the makings of a fantastic venue. BUT it has been bought by britania hotels who are essentaily pontins holidays so it's full of low cost northern coach tours. In the summer I don't mind as the Black Horse in the vilage is superb for dining. Nice walk in. Soong as you know what you're booking, fine.

Like a residential care home.

Booked late and got a good deal but probably never going to stay there again. Whilst it's a lovely setting the grounds are in need of serious TLC and the vast majority of the other guests, and I mean 99%, were OAPs. Very demanding at the best of times. At least 2 coach loads.
