8/10 Very good

Bit aged, needs some TLC but great service!
Overall the stay was really pleasing, the room was okay, bit dated and tired looking but staff at hotel and adjoining restaurant were really lovely and delivered a great service. Complimentary water in room is always a nice touch, as well as regular tea and coffee/ biscuits. Had a lovely indian meal in the evening, so tasty and reasonably priced. The breakfast, which was included in the price was very tasty. Continental and full cooked breakfast, with numerous options available. Would recommend and definitely stay here again if in the area!!

OK - but tired
Friendly staff - and the breakfast was good. I had a twin room which was clean and very tired. It felt like it had last been updated sometime in the 1970s. Old fashioned and in desperate need of a freshen up. Photo is taken from my bed looking towards the loo/shower room door - that's the TV up on the top left. For what I paid - I have to say it felt expensive for what I got.

shabby chic without the chic
Staff were great especially in the hotel bar but very tired and grubby family room was supplied. Home made room furniture, from planks/pallets (Im not sure) peeling wallpaper below rads, slumped singke bedframe (not used) with cheap double draw divan having been 'improved'...? by a pallet wood surround. Pictures on the web are clearly very very old or if another hotel compared to our room. Avoid at all costs. There are many better establishments for this amount of money. This was truely one of the poorest rooms ive stayed in, but for 1 night after along day, we couldnt be bothered to complain. just take our experience if you are looking at this and go elsewhere

Nice hotel, nightmare guest next door
Hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff were lovely with a quick check-in. Paid extra for a superior room which was great for the first 2 nights of our stay. The room had an adjoining door and on the last night the adjoining room was occupied but a loud and obnoxious family whose child screeched loudly for most of the evening. father (I assume) then proceeded to make loud phone calls until well past midnight. As there is no hotel reception or phone in the rooms you can not contact anyone so unless we wanted a confrontation with clearly rude and obnoxious people we were stuck. Being partially deaf I couldn't even block out the mans incessant drone even with loo roll stuff in my ears which may give an idea of how loud he was after his child has stopped screeching. I guess we were lucky that it as only one night and not the 3 we stayed or we would have come home early. Despite the good location and other positives mentioned not sure we would stay here again as we were absolutely wrecked the next morning after a dreadful nights sleep.
