눉I'd have rated the hotel higher because it has the potential to be excellent, but there were a few things which let it down for me. The biggest issue was my room. The top of one of the bedside cabinets was really sticky, giving the impression that it hadn't been cleaned properly for some time, it also didn't have a glass top like the other one. I wasn't impressed by the quality of the room overall. It felt very dated and it didn't seem particularly well maintained. It looked like there were tears in the bedside lampshades, but on further inspection it was damage to the plastic lining of the shades that was the problem. Also, sitting in the seat in the corner of the room you could see screws/holes in the wall behind the bed and it just didn't leave me with a very good impression.
Little things really do make a difference, and the quality of the bedroom is what separates a good stay from an excellent one. I would visit the hotel again because of it's other facilities, but unfortunately I wouldn't want to go back to this hotel and stay in the same bedroom again because it just fell short of what I expected.
눇There really was a lot to like about this hotel and, at the price I paid it is hard to fault it for value for money overall. In particular the leisure facilities and the breakfast were excellent. There was also a great bar area which was perfect for relaxing with a drink and watching the football on the large screen TVs.
It has a handy location too, being two minutes from the motor way means you're well placed for wherever you're onward journey takes you.
