The receptionist was very friendly when we arrived and check in didn't take long at all.
The room was a nice size, but there was no air con so we had to open the window which made it very noisy at night (as we were at the front of the hotel we heard people trying to check in outside on the computer and as it was a public holiday there were fireworks, which I understand is not the hotels fault).
The bed was comfy and the shower was warm with a good spray. This hotel also had free wifi but I did not use it so cannot tell you how good it was. We also did not have breakfast so cannot comment on that either.
Another reason I am marking this hotel down is due to the fact that the restaurant was not open (I read this on the website before we got there). It closed at the end of July and won't open until the beginning of September which I thought was disappointing. Also the local restaurant 2 mins walk from the hotel was shut too so we had to go out in the car to a local fast food restaurant (there didn't seem to be anything within walkable distance).
The reception shuts at 9pm so after that the machines at the front door will let you gain access. Also the car park is not locked at night so do not keep anything valuable in just to be safe.
Although this place has got good reviews I am not sure I will stop here again, the price was right but I am not sure I would stay here again.
