    The room was a little tiered as was the bathroom and the bed a little uncomfortable. It was fine for 1 night but I wouldn't exceed this.

    The staff were brilliant, very friendly and couldn't do more, especially the Lady at the front desk.

    The beds/matrasses really need to be upgraded and the layout of the rooms perhaps swapped around a little to give more space.

    Room was small and was made smaller with a big desk and a big chair that didn’t sit under the desk. Totally impractical. The WiFi in the room was non existent so if you want to watch something on your iPad or other device, don’t stay here. There was a bar and restaurant but it wasn’t a great place to sit if you wanted to relax on a comfy chair. It would be ok if all you want from a hotel is somewhere to sleep. Not worth what we paid.

    Lady at reception was very nice and helpful. There was enough parking.

    There was no wardrobe so that was not good. I know we were only there for two nights but my husband is a bowler but could not hang his gear up along with our clothes for the function in the evening after the match.

    We only had a room with no breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and the room was big enough.

    While the location was close to the town centre it meant that our room, which was on the street side, easily heard the noise of cars going along the street. The windows to our rooms had been open which allowed a layer of black dust to settle on anything near the window.

    The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help. The cost of our room, evening meal and breakfast was about the same as some b&bs we had stayed in recently.

    No lift, had to carry the suitcases. One staff was very grumpy and unfriendly. Seemed short of staff and the staff had to work long hours and did everthing, from reception, kitchen, bar to cleaning. As my pad lock dropped behind the cabinet, I had to pick it up. I saw lots of dust behind the cabinets. My son is asthmatic and my nose is very sensitive. We always sneezed when we entered the room. Despite numerous reminders not to smoke outside the customer's room, I still saw the staff did that for a number of occasions.

    The location is good.
