“Useless”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2011

It was my sisters wedding reception an they couldn't organise a p up in a brewery. In the reception were we ate our food it must of been 40 degrees with no air con or even the common sense of bringing water round to the tables without being harassed by sweating red faced guest absolute disgrace would strongly advise for your money to go else were as is expensive and you would get a much much higher rate of service else were

My daughter and son in law had their wedding reception at this hotel on 30th July 2011 - many things went wrong. We have written an email to the Managing Director on 1st August 2011 listing the problems we encountered on the day to give him a chance of an explanation - as this has still not been answered [4 days later]or any contact made with us. I will warn other couples not to waste their money on a hotel that gives such a poor service both during and after the wedding

I stay here because it is a convenient location and offers the basic needs of a business hotel at a good price

The hotel has lots of single rooms which help keep costs under control with free wi-fi and breakfast incl
Whilst the facilities may not be four star etc the hotel offers good value for money and i will stay at this hotel in the future

We arrived late at night and were soon in our beds. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the breakfast was plentiful. Tea and coffee in rooms and in the lounge area and good food and snacks quickly served too. Comfy beds and secure car park

Only downside was the speedbumps on the driveway. My 406 bottomed and the bumps were covered in scratches. I spoke to the reception staff who were sympathetic and aware of the problem > but something needs to be done about them

Would stay there again without hesitation but will drive in very slowly next time
