Functional. Close to where I was doing business. Arrived late so was in hotel less than 12 hours. Critically, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and I never heard a peep after I left the noisy reception area where a number of young children seemed well past their bed time. The staff were very welcoming upon arrival and...

Stayed here for 2 nights recently with my partner. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and tidy. The only complaints we have about the rooms are there were not many plug sockets, especially by the bedsides. The room was very warm, as were the corridors but a fan was provided, which we couldn't have done without...

The hotel is ideal for an overnight stay prior to flying off on holiday. The staff were very friendly when we stayed again this year, the accommodation is clean and comfortable with good parking facilities, although there is a £7 charge to park overnight.
