Nice stay
Stayed for one night with my family. Reception staff very friendly. We stayed across the road from main hotel. Decor a bit tired and shabby. Bed very comfy and slept well. Breakfast was good. Porridge was delicious and good range for the continental breakfast. Need to offer a dairy free spread though for vegans. Overall an enjoyable stay.

Good location
Good location. Always feel a bit odd staying on the ground floor, but it was very quiet. Only gripe was being asked to pay an extra £5 to park from check out time till 2pm. Given that we’d paid over £400 and an extra £20 for parking - it seems a bit mean spirited as no one else would be parking there.
