6/10 Good

Overall it’s decent hotel but overpriced
This is a decent small hotel close to town centre with free parking. We paid for a superior room and for the price we paid we were a little disappointed. Decor a little tired especially in the bathroom but main issue was no hot water in the evening; shower was only tepid. Also room was very cold at night even after turning radiator. We tried to grab something to eat in the restaurant around 17:00 but were told it was fully booked even though it was empty. Suggested that we could order snacks from the bar, these were very limited, 4 options I think. It’s a nice small hotel but if you are changing 5 star rate then you need to do better. I did report hot water situation at check out but the young lady seemed very inexperienced and just said she would report it.

4/10 Fair

Nice area, nice site, but bed being held together by tape, for the price a night isn’t great, and unfortunately temporary traffic lights the day we stayed which meant constant noise, I am sure in a different room without the temporary traffic lights would of been a much different experience.
