Positive Reviews

Value for money

The rooms are clean bight and comfortable and staff are helpful A glass of wine was even received upon evening arrival! Furthermore, young children eat dinner for free!

Fabulous facilities

There's lots of parking and the fitness facilities are great! Great for leisure and business! The beauty room comes especially highly recommended.

No complaints!

Service was great, bed was comfortable, room met expectations and facilities were adequate Rooms also accommodate disabled guests.

Negative Reviews


You can her the trains and traffic from the rooms, which can disrupt sleep and the hotel could perhaps use a revamp Otherwise, it was quite average.

Disorganised and disappointing

The hotel can be ill prepared for guests and has had hiccups with guests checking in and out The restaurant can be a bit disappointing in terms of quality and is thus overpriced Furthermore, the carpets in guests' room are reportedly dirty and bathrooms are under equipped and not as fresh smelling as guests would prefer.

Faulty facilities

Guests experienced a Jacuzzi that wasn't functioning and a television which switched itself on at inappropriate hours Moreover, the radiator reportedly would not turn off.
