How to Get There
We stayed here last year and even though I was very impressed with the reception area and the staff our room sadly was just awful ! It was on the ground floor, very small and dark which looked out onto a dirty back yard and the beds were diabolical. If I stayed here again I would ask to look at the room first
Booked this hotel through work for a 2 days training course. I stayed in room 540 (that may be important as not sure if all rooms see like this one)
Breakfast - one of the best hotel breakfasts. £15
Bed - really comfy
Booking in - very quick. Nice helpful staff.
Room was clean and cleaners came and made up bed despite just a. 2 day stay.
No fridge in the room. You’d have thought you would in this day.
Shower - OMG. I’ve never seen anything like it. Shower is a built in one above the 3/4 bath (pretty normal) but to my surprise the wall is built out taking up vital head/body room. Very awkward way of showering. And if you have a bath you need to be very careful not to hit your head on this badly designed wall. I took a video but cant post it on here.
Ultimately a good stay and would come again. I cant believe all Rooms had showers designed that way.
It’s clean, some of the staff are polite and amenable. It’s not a bad location. And that’s about it. Check in was a slow and torrid mess. I booked a double for single occupancy. It was so small the bed was shoved up against one wall. The bathroom was minute. Arguably the world’s most uncomfortable pillows prevent proper sleep. The menu is not exactly filled with what people might regard as ordinary food. After a day’s work I want proper food not experimental dishes. Add an intimidating, unfriendly, stone faced and unhelpful duty manager to all that and the result is decidedly unappealing. To be fair I spoke to the duty manager in the morning - Laura, I believe - and she was charming. But if she was genuine, and it seemed so, she’s got an uphill battle on her hands to rescue this place. Stay if you must. But only if you must.
Really strange hotel, half of downstairs is nice but the other half is really old and outdated and grubby much like the rooms! We had a party of 10 staying here, half the rooms were nice and modern and clean the other half were old,dirty,grubby with broken locks and showers. If you are going to stay here make sure you request a new room because otherwise you will be very disappointed
I bought a Groupon voucher for this for a friend's birthday. It cost 19 pounds and I thought it was good value. The picture of the food items on the Groupon website looked good. The reality was different. They served the tea quite quickly (poor selection of black teas). However, we waited 20 minutes for the food items to arrive. The sandwiches were decent except for the ham wrap which was bad. The scones were decent and warm, but the clotted cream pot had been used previously and recycled on our tower which lead me to wonder if all the foodstuffs were recycled. I pointed this out to the waitress, who was nice enough and replaced it, but she wasn't very apologetic about it. The jam was not really recognisable as jam. It was very hard, almost gummy. The clotted cream was not light and fluffy but it was ok. I personally didn't like most of the small pastries except for the macaroon which was ok. My friend was pleased with her treat as she hadn't been to a tea for a long time.However, they didn't acknowledge her birthday. I guess I shouldn't expect much from a discount tea. I simply want to warn people who may consider paying full price for this substandard tea. There are better places than this for afternoon tea. Sorry Corus but this as a fail.
