When sat nav said "You've arrived at your destination", we actually drove straight past as the outside looked like a demolition site. When we realised this was our hotel, we were initially a little disappointed. As non-smokers with three young children, it was also a little off-putting having a smoking area right outside the hotel's front door. However, the inside of the hotel is considerably nicer than the outside! It's a little tired looking and could do with updating, which I believe the owners are doing. The rooms weren't as clean as you would expect during this current climate...there was a lot of dust on skirting boards, the tray that held the complimentary tea and coffee was pretty dirty and obviously not cleaned after each visit, and the menu/information leaflet was very grubby, as was the TV remote. The corridors also smell a bit musty. That aside, we felt the hotel offers good value for money and we would stay again. We had a family room for five guests and found it to be a good size. We thought all staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We decided to eat in the restaurant and didn't really have high hopes for dinner, but we were pleasantly surprised! The food was reasonable and good value. Breakfast was also good, with plenty of choice.
