A good base for a business stopover.
I've stayed here several times over several years. No issues. Executive room was very comfortable if rather warm. I did not sample the bar or spa facilities.

Would stay again
Clean, spacious rooms (we booked connecting). Good choice and quality breakfast. Staff were lovely. Only slight gripe would be that we ordered milk to our room for our baby, through reception and it didn't ever arrive. Diner down the road (with take away menu) was a godsend with two tired children (food great and they gave us some warm milk which was much appreciated) . Another tip would be to check swimming pool availability, as the morning we left (and had intended to use it) there were lessons until late morning.

Serves a purpose where theres little alternative.
Well this is an ok hotel, possibly 3 star but its not 4 star that's for sure - there is no character to hotels built like this - but it serves a purpose and it has little competition in the area. Yes plenty of free parking, albeit a lot taken up by road works vehicles, yes breakfast was good however the place is all quite tired, the bed has had too many sleeps, wardrobes with the doors taken off because it suits modern minimalism doesn't work - just demonstrates its age and lack of investment. Zero room to room sound insulation - could easily hear couple? enjoying sex next door at ~2.00am!! Window catch broken, no air con, floor had not been vacuum cleaned on arrival!
