Modern and big rooms, great shower & lovely pub!
Allan, gb1 night business trip
Poor 2.0
When I arrived the room was absolutely freezing cold I report, I reported this to the reception staff and was advised that someone would be over soon to take a look, I am still waiting! The next morning I try to take a shower but only managed to get 30 seconds of hot water, which on winters morning was absolutely terrible.

Very lovely and clean. Lovely big bathroom and very big main room. Dressing table was a good touch. All staff was friendly and lovely food.

Poor 2.0
Ridiculously unhelpful
Totally refused to wash up (or let me wash up) my babies bottles, and didn’t offer to help at all. I’ve never seen anything so ridiculous. Shame as would’ve been a good stay otherwise.

Poor Customer Service - Avoid
I booked this room for business I had very close by. I would usually get a Premier Inn or something but this looked good. I knew I was going to arrive late due to lots of road closures. I called in advance but nobody answered my call and when I arrived I was unable to access the building or my room. I called and knocked but nobody answered. I had driven 150 miles and everywhere else was booked. I consider the customer experience extremely poor. Surely either answer your phones or if you have a booking maybe call the customer if they haven't arrived yet and arrange access to the room which was paid for.
