A very depressing, dingy and dirty looking hotel. I couldn't believe the amount of litter all over the car park and outside areas. The decor is...

Restaurant was self serve but plenty of choice both in the evening and again at...

the night reception staff are rude and condescending UN helpful and disrespectful to patrons . if you complain they will fob you off .if you take the complaint higher guess what they are not interested . i would strongly recommend you spend your money with a company that give some attention to customer feed back even when negative
