    3/5

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    Usually great, not this time unfortunately.

    Our room was unfortunately two double beds on the station street side, so very noisy. The hotel was fully booked so we couldn't change rooms. I was disappointed that the lift lobby was crowded with unused furniture and in the room there were some slim mattresses which must have been accidentally left there. We've stayed here around a dozen times and this was so disappointing.

    The hotel was spotless with so much character. All the little extras in the room such as the chocolate and pop corn was an nice touch.

    Fabulous hotel

    Brilliant stay. The tele didn’t work in the room so we were changed to another room straight away. We had already been upgraded to a large room with two double beds! Love this hotel.

    Lovely hotel but slow service

    Loved the hotel , however I was attending a dinner and checked in around 1530, I had a quick turnaround as meeting clients at 1645. Realised at 4 pm no hairdryer in room so called reception , called again at 4.15 and 4.30 as I was no running late .. small thing but it did have a massive outcome on my timings and had to go out with wet hair,
