Poor 2.0
Don't even bother !!!
Shocking place, this is by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The shower head was broken and sprayed all over the bathroom just not on me, there was a water leak from the bottom of the toilet which I kept needing to mop up, the hot tap didn't work but the cold one dripped constantly all night long. The bed was ok but ended up itching all night so not sure what was in the bed with me. WiFi was terrible, I was on a work trip and could barely get connection, had to hotspot from my phone to get anything done. I know its cheap but I'd pay an extra £30-40 and go to a decent hotel next time.

Very good 8.0
Good hotel
Only stayed here for one night, choosing this hotel was based on it having a pool, sauna etc. Would have been even better if pool was larger, not many people in there and felt bit crowded with some wanting to swim and no space to do this. Nice, clean hotel which is undergoing some refurbishment. Staff members pleasant and helpful. Shame about location as felt a bit out the way, but would go again if I wanted a relaxing break. Beds comfy, got a great nights sleep!

Good 6.0
only good thing is it has a large car park
Shabby room but looks like they’re having work done and hope this extends to bedrooms. Awful food for room service (curry - unbelievably salty) with £5 tray charge (more expensive than London!) unwelcoming receptionists. So not great I’m afraid this time.

I had no complaints about how clean it was and friendly staff. The bar area was absolutely freezing found it very cold to sit and enjoy my evening meal due to this
