Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TJ2264 Stay Spoilt by Deliveries.
Very annoyed to be woken at 5:00am by lorry delivering linen to the hotel right outside my bedroom window. Deliveries should not take place so early. As a hotel everything was up to the usual standards. Stay seriously spoilt by very loud delivery.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mikemsm OK for the money, friendly staff
First off I would say that for the price paid we got our monies worth - probably the best way to put it.
Arrived late (after 9.30pm) but their were two members of staff behind the reception desk and both offered to service us straight away. I had booked online so my details were checked, vehicle parking details taken, and room key handed over. We were also told about on breakfast times, the bar/ restaurant and checkout. In all a warm welcome and very good service.
Only stayed for one night but was disappointed with the room. If we had been staying longer I would have asked for a different room.
Paint on walls looked a little dirty in corners and edges and the lighting in the room is very dim due to there being no ceiling light in the main section of the room. The bedside lamps and desk lamp help but the room still felt very dark.
There was a large dark stain on the carpet just beside the bed, which was a little off putting when getting in/ out of bed. The rest of the carpet was in pretty good condition, just that one area that needs attention.
The furniture was a little worn in places but still quite acceptable. There however on one chair in the room so one of us had to sit on the bed while chatting. Another chair would be nice.
The bed seemed small, not king-size like we are used to and the mattress was springy. Pillows felt a little lumpy but the bedding was clean and well presented.
The bathroom was a little tired in places, quite clean but there was a layer of dust on some of the fitting such as the toilet roll, soap and tissue holders for example. The positioning on the lights mean they are behind you when you are using the mirror, this cast a bit of a shadow so made it seem quite dark at times. The shower was a bit of a let down, low pressure and the head was hanging on for dear life as the holder has seen better days.
Breakfast was disappointing, buffet style (which is fine) but very limited range of hot foods. No bacon, mushrooms, hash browns, tomatoes etc. The only choice of eggs was scrambled, they were very poor although the sausages were good. I must admit that I did not fully read what the hot breakfast included so I guess that's my fault if I am fair. I would of been willing to pay a slightly higher all inclusive room rate for a full range of cooked breakfast options, maybe something Holiday Inn express will look at doing in the future?
Would I stay again? Probably not.
The staff were great and the hotel overall was good, just the room we had was not up to scratch. Also I do like a full English breakfast when I am staying in hotels, it's my little indulgence when I am away.
The review may seem a little negative but I'm a great believer in 'you get what you pay for', for what we paid it was OK - just OK.
But it was a good location for us with parking, nice reception, lounge and bar and great staff - so not all bad.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tim.rose Poor Service and Terrible Food
I stayed here for a night for business trip and can honestly say I was very disappointed staff not very friendly or helpful. Room was okay and clean quilt needs changing as it was very lumpy but okay. However the food was terrible we ate in the restaurant we both where very disappointed the food was deep fried to an inch of its life and very greasy. Breakfast was also not great staff member not very helpful and every seat full so I had to ask a family if I could sit with them just so I could have some food then the selection was not great either. Will not be staying here again and would recommend others not to!

As a regular visitor, this hotel ticks all the basic boxes with the benefit of a great bunch of lads & lasses behind the counters!
