8/10 Very good

A good basic hotel
The hotel was generally good, but kept the cost down by cutting corners. The food was only OK, being the quality to be expected from a large canteen. Rooms were not serviced during a stay, which is fine for a stay of a couple of nights, but not one (such as mine) for 10 days. Perhaps this saving on housekeeping enabled the hotel to keep prices down, but if so rooms should have had the means of guests doing this themselves (e.g. providing a toilet brush to ensure that everything did in fact get flushed away. On the other hand, I have stayed in accommodation where the water did not run hot in the basin and only had a shower. I therefore give high marks for the quality of the bathroom. The advert said there was parking, but not that it was all on-street. The small car park in front of the hotel had been changed into an outdoor seating area, which may have been a good idea. The room was OK, with an enormous ensuite bathroom: it would have been much better with less space devoted to ablutions and more floorspace in the room, which would have meant that there was space in the room for an easy chair. As it was there was one upright chair in the room, with little space to use it and another (bizarrely) in the bathroom. The hotel is well-geared up for handling coach parties, often several at a time. I was not part of one.

6/10 Good

Mixed disappointing to acceptable.
Booked a double room, bed and breakfast, through, which was confirmed. Received a phone call on our arrival day, saying that the room was no longer available, but we could have a twin room, too late to find alternative we had to accept. We had booked specifying free wifi and car parking on the site. Upon arrival we were told that free wifi was not available in the rooms, and we would need to pay £7 per day. We could not even get a phone signal in the room to be able to use our mobile data. We also found the hotel had no parking for cars, only coaches, and we would have to find on road parking. Not very good on such narrow roads. Otherwise the breakfasts were good and there was free entertainment nightly. However, the rooms are very dated and need updated carpets and decor, the bathroom however was good. The hotel obviously caters mainly for the coach party tours.
