While the location was alright, the room n bathroom were not only small, dated and smelt musty. The bathroom sink was Super small that water splashed onto the floor even when washing hands. Shower cubicle was slippery. Bed Was covered with a bed spread and duvet inner. It was also bouncy indicating that some springs were loose or out of alignment. Tv didn’t work and both heater and bathroom lights were groaning making sleep difficult.

Work trip and have stayed at other places in this capacity... really dated and was not really as clean as would have expected for the price..poky little rooms and mattress on bed was uncomfortable probably needs updating. Really dont mind the cost of paying for a room but this was not worth the price paid a cheaper price would of been acceptable however will be staying elsewhere next visit

Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was small and a bit dated. Huge TV - a bit too big for room! Overall quite OK. Didn't use the onsite restaurant or bar but would be good when not wanting to venture out.

A quick stop over to drop family off to airport. They booked it. I was embarrassed at how dirty and moldy it was. You do get what you pay for, but it should have been clean. Would not recommend . Had a nice seafood dinner at dickens in town

Very handy location with plenty of good parking. Excellent customer service. Clean adequate rooms with comfortable bed although the bathroom was small and the shower disappointing. Carvery dinner on Tuesday evening was plentiful and easy after a long day. A pleasant stay.
