Perfect stay. Ample free parking. Check in was quick,efficient and friendly. Our room was quiet clean and comfortable. There was only a shower - no bath, which suits us perfectly. The inclusive breakfast consisted of cereals, toast, muffins as well as hot bacon sausage scrambled eggs and beans. Minimal to some but perfectly adequate. Would definitely stay again for same except deal

Stayed here for one night as attending an event at the Dome. Check in was smooth. Room was clean. Breakfast was adequate and quick. Staff friendly and helpful. Only downside was the drunk, loud, anti vaxxer, anti covid "surgeon" that was hanging about the reception/bar area. He seemed to be looking for an argument and was very keen to be able to enforce his views upon you, as he approached anyone that went to the reception/bar area. He was very loud and extremely obnoxious. He intimidated quite a few folk. The two staff on duty did well to eventually calm him down but he certainly spoilt what could have been an enjoyable evening with friends in the bar.

We arrived to find that there were no kitchen staff and supplies were short. This meant that there was no evening meal, but there was a plentiful breakfast - only cooked stuff whilst I prefer cold cuts of meat and cheese. The staff that were present were pleasant and trying to cope. Fortunately, on the same site is the Woodfield Farm - a restaurant with basic food (lots of carbs), which was very welcoming. The fan in the bathroom was filthy - clearly never had a feather duster around it. The taps were dirty in the bathroom. The nightlights in the bathroom are great - leave on over night and easy to find the bathroom, without being kept awake by the light.

This is the second time that we have stayed at this hotel and were again more than pleased with it. We arrived late to a very nice young man that served us a much needed pint of beer. The rooms are clean and well set out, nice bathroom, lovely clean bedding and beautiful large bath towels (we returned from a 4* hotel that could learn a thing or two). The breakfast was very good, great bacon and sausage (no eggs but not sure why) but plentiful cereal, bread and pastries. All the staff were great and helpful we would definitely book this hotel again without hesitation.
