4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

It is located in a really busy street and the parking places stuns very expensive.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Very comfortable bed and clean. Didn't like how they only make up the room by changing over towels also had a linking door to the next hotel room so could hear through this and even though it remained locked still felt a bit unsafe. Not many facilities in the hotel and there are no discounts for hotel guests at bar downstairs even though it is always very quiet no matter what the time. Staff are friendly but share too much (started talking to me about horror stories at the hotel when checking in which isn't the best first impression) but they get the job done. Easy enough access to the hotel though and great location so reasonable considering the price.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The room was clean, quite with a comfy king size bed and coffee machine but there was no where to fill up the kettle or c/m. I locked myself out of my room and the reception staff were lovely & helpful. Shared bathroom was a surprise, but there were lots of them on my floor and they were very clean.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Photo of the hotel on this website is misleading as it doesn't look like that when we arrived. Property still under construction as top 3 floors had no windows in & planks of wood protruding out of these windows. We arrived to find no receptionist & still had to wait til 2pm to check in, we were only 20 mins early but thought we could still go to our room a little bit early to drop off our suitcases. A chap that was working in the pub next door is part of the hotel said we could leave our suitcases in the pub if we wanted to go out. I wasn't prepared to leave my suitcase unattended. He then said they are short staffed as a lot are off sick including the chef! When it was time to check in, a young lady did this for us with a double room, boy that room is so small, we hardly had any room for two suitcases. My friend had put hers on a suitcase rack & put it in the cupboard as we would have tripped over hers getting to the bathroom. I had to put mine on a chair near the end of bed, I had to walk sideways between my suitcase & the bed!! Then following morning going for breakfast, told Chef is off sick again & still very short staffed but got someone else to cook breakfast. I thought great, foods on hot plates, go to dish up egg, bacon etc, to find it's cooked but stone cold! Not happy, so we decided for the rest of the stay we'd have breakfast out. We have days out but our beds never made but the bin is emptied, one day we came back to find our door to our room was left opened!!
