Good value for money
Staff should lift their game, location was ok, but it is bit of a walk into town. cleanliness was ok, breakfast was again ok. The biggest problem is carparking, the staff seem to have no idea on the capacity of the carparking voucher system and just cram you in any way they can. So this was not good.

work and pleasure
Was booked in for work on the Monday night so decided to come down early and spend the weekend which we paid for ourselves. Checked in easy as...was assured we wouldn't need to change rooms but the hotel didn't note this down and we had a confused phone call from them. They did fi the problem and was very friendly about it and apologetic. Handy to town, handy to the shops, within easy walking distance. Renovations were going on so a bit of a mixup wasn't really a problem.

Tiny room, en suite smelt of wee
Really the only great thing about this hotel was the WiFi, which was awesome.
