This hotel has a perfect location for us and we have used it several times already. It is as expected (condition, cleanliness, service). We just find it rather impersonal. But we will stay again.

Staff are very friendly. Hotel decor is old and need a revamp. Breakfast is ok and definitely not value for money. Breads did not seem fresh. They don’t have a kitchen as such, they just warm up food in the oven or microwave. Hotel bar is limited. Not kettle in the room, had to ask for it and it was quickly provided. No English channels on TV. Hotel is not value for money, quite the opposite.

Great value for money

Had everything we needed, this time we even had a kettle (the last visit there was no kettle). The breakfast is great and the prepared meals are really tasty as was the wine. Easy parking. Nothing negative to say. Good value for money

This hotel is positioned between 2 busy main roads so road noise is areal negative ,we found it very difficult to sleep. We were on the ground floor so did not have a window instead we had a tilt and turn glass door when we stayed it was very hot so had limited ventilation at night the combination of heat, no air and road noise spoilt our stay. We went for an evening walk and were surprised to find 350 meters from the hotel a prison the prisoners were shouting from the windows at first we thought we were mistaken so when we got home we went on the internet and yes it was a prison so not the best of locations.

Pros: The security both within the hotel and the locked car park

Cons: Air conditioning installed

Location: Not ideal
