Stayed for 2 nights with my husband and 3 grandchildren in 2 rooms. Neither us nor the 1 member of staff knew if we were booked for breakfast so didnt get any. The bar and pool room are only available at weekends, if we had known this would have booked elsewhere. The rooms were okay, though not very well cleaned,...

Just been here for a weekend stag do with 20 odd of us staying Friday and Saturday night. Check in was straightforward enough, you need to bear in mind everyone needs to pay £20 deposit which you get back on departure. I was in room 4 which is at the top of the first flight of stairs, handy to get...

Hi Adrian Thanks for the helpful review. The refundable £20pp deposit is a protection for the group organiser, if a member of the group did cause some damage (thankfully this is rare) the resposability would be down to the person who booked the hotel. We do make this clear, although not everyone reads the information sent! Room 4 is an...

When myself and my boyfriend arrived, we checked in and was welcomed by a lovely lady who we chatted to for a little while, we were then handed the keys, our room was nice with 3 single beds, but we pushed two of them together to make a double, which was very comfy, tv worked great, shower was lovely and...

First I'd like to point out a few negatives regarding our stay,firstly the checkout time was a bit early for a "party hotel" when most of the guests are nursing hangovers,but in fairness to the staff,we were about 20mins late,and nobody came to clear us out,also the shower had a very slow flow,but unlike the other reviews,the water was perfectly...

Many thanks for your kind comments. Yes I suppose a 10.30 is early but realistically the rooms aren't turned around until well after 11.00. That explains the reason why - we have to get the bedrooms ready for 2.00 pm on the same day.

If you are expecting luxury then this is not the place. If you are expecting a comfortable bed to sleep in and a breakfast second to none then this is the place for you. It is also within spitting distance of the tower and primark (a must for me). We stayed for one night purely to let our 2 children...
