This is a basic hotel - you get what you may for. Rooms were clean and breakfast fine. However, depending on where your room is situated you may hear cars from the motorway. Rooms require a renovation/modernization (room doors have door knobs from the 80s, etc.). If basic is fine with you this place will be alright. Otherwise, steer clear and go with something more up to date and predictable (e.g., Holiday Inn, etc.).

advertise as a 4 star hotel.! No room service day one, Electric sill on old type plugs, paper peeling from walls. gate bottom fire escape locked, alternate route over grass which had trench across, lower fire door part blocked by a skip although that was not the real problem inside fire door builders materials. Looks good on advert.
