Table lamp broken, not the end of the world
Location was great , free parking once inside.
Very complicated check in, they insist they take pre authorisation of your room payment plus £25 for security!! I understand they may have situations of people leaving without paying for food , however being told to check you have the money in your account ???? Feels a little insulting. At first view seems clean , but being in the room it’s very dusty , food on the chair , I moved the chair bits and large cobwebs underneath... not been moved for sometime. The food wasn’t great in the restaurant we waited a long time, when it didn’t seem busy , and was poor , overheated in the microwave in some cases
The hotel car park was easy to find and reception staff were excellent! Restaurant on site was very good and reasonable and perfect for an inexpensive one night stay for us ! Soft closure doors so unlike the previous hotel we stayed at we did not hear any noisy doors banging throughout the evening . Breakfast was help yourself and coffee was lovely and strong from Cona glass pots and was hot ! Would definitely stay again as so inexpensive and no noisy people around , lots of corporate work people , a few workmen and other couples stayed here so did not feel uncomfortable at all .
Location, convenient for work
The attitude of the staff when they told me at 830 they’d stopped serving food due to being busy! No apology, offer of options, just a flat NO!!
This was book but no where were we informed that the restaurant was shout all day on the 11th. Was not informed of this on arrival and only knew because there was a sign on the main door as we were going out so had to them find somewhere else to have dinner.
