Very clean hotel with good customer service

The room was very clean but the blinds at the window were broken.

This was a shame because otherwise the room was very comfortable. The cooked breakfast was plentiful but nothing special. The 'continental' breakfast was extremely disappointing. No cheese. No cold meat. How is this a continental breakfast. Just a few cereals, cheap sliced bread, a croissant in cellophane and a yogurt. The hotel needs to look at getting gin some fresh bread every morning and a selection of cheese and meats. This would really improve the breakfast and make the bed and breakfast experience much more pleasant.

Quiet, practical, ideally situated for a very early airport departure without having to pay inflated "near airport" prices, diect and easy bus access into the town centre.

Friendly welcoming staff, free wifi, A BATH!!. as well as an excellent shower and a mega-comfy bed. Highly recommended by an extremely seasoned traveller.

Better than I expected

I booked the accommodation at the last minute and was a bit bothered by the mixed reviews.

I was a bit confused by the 2 buildings next door to each other with similar names and not knowing which one to check in at. A number of steps up to the door, a bit difficult for me at the moment with suitcase and crutches but I didn't check this out beforehand. Accommodation wise, I had a lovely large room with a gorgeous polished floor and proper dark wood furniture, not shoddy flat pack stuff. The room could do with rearranging so the tv is not sideways on. Room was a little cold, had to put radiators on, curtains desperately need re hanging. . No problems at all with the staff, all helpful and polite. I just wish fellow guests would not shout and bang around after midnight, how rude. . Warm comfy bed and a good nights sleep once the neighbours settled. Good filling breakfast. All I can say is that this hotel needs a couple of tweaks to room layout and finishing touches and it will be really good.

wonderful cheery staff and clean surroundings

Our stay was short but really good.

Staff were very cheery and nothing was too much trouble. Only issue I had was our room had a plain glass door on the en-suite ...covered easily though. Would defo go back

Lovely warm sunny room at front.

Plenty of hot water. Good breakfast with all the trimmings but a little greasy. All that is needed for a short stay.

Value for money

The one night stay was value for money as we paid a discounted rate in small back room with a good range of breakfast items.

But, the room needs some attention to the kettle, the hard spring mattress and heating.

Desperate stay in a small room

I stayed in the single room and it is a hole, no windows and curtains, everything was so small that was hard to believe they sell it.

I did it so because I could not find any other places, so please refurbish the single room or don't sell it anymore.

hospital visit

There was no access to either side of the property via the door bells it took a phone call to gain access the shower was not worth using as there was no power in it and it would be very difficult for any female with thick or long hair to get it washed or rinsed.

On my booking form it said that no payment would be taken from the credit card used but on booking in the payment had been taken without my authorisation.
