    5/5 Excellent

    Great stay! Totally loved it! Would have been nice if I had a fridge in the room to store something.

    5/5 Excellent

    The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room was first class in terms of cleanliness and functionality. If I was being very 'picky the view from the first floor room window, over the roof of the hotel's extension, was not the one I would have chosen!

    The hotel was generally what we expected for an Express, pleasant service and reasonable room size (family room). Our door was a nightmare to get into (card reader misaligned) but the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was reasonable with options for most tastes.

    We didn’t enjoy our stay the room was ok and the staff great with the amount of roles they perform reception, bar, kitchen and shuttle bus driver to name a few. We were disappointed with the location of the hotel as derelict building next door and not many food options near by. The bar and food choices at the hotel are limited and the ovens had broken whilst we were there and no food was available and as we’d have a couple of drinks couldn’t drive out anywhere so we had to order a takeaway. The bar area was cold with a door to the patio open and the main door open it made the whole of the bar area cold and we spent the evening wearing our coats. I won’t be staying again at this hotel.
