Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Straightforward Traveller Lacklustre
Random lifts, ambience of a second rate McDonalds. Noise from the floor above. Room very small with equally small very hard bed. Car park chaotic. Reception staff barked at me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MEDR Hotel needs new management
Check in and check out process painfully slow. Need to figure out how the rest of the world does "express". Clearly no defined processes exists, which preclude effective training. No modern efficiency processes considered.
Hotel looks old despite remodeling just a few years ago. Starting to show wear around the edges. Walls need new paint. wooden door and trim in bathrooms showing the effects of moisture, Need to be replaced or repaired.
Pillows are very thin and poor. Feather/down pillows needed.
Internet strength is weak
Breakfast very poor and boring. No variety and always exactly the same. Where are the pancakes, french toast, waffles, omelets, pastries, more fresh fruit, etc.?
The hotel finally started opening the workout room early to accommodate businessmen. (Posted opening time is 7:30am which doesn't work for anyone). Need larger space and more equipment., Only one treadmill.
Parking is difficult. Layout poor. Not enough room for all guests. Needed to park at public lot nearby.
Also, what is it with all the fire doors? Is England especially prone to fires? I know there is a historical reason here, but some door manufacturers are making alot of money. I needed to go through 7 fire doors just to go from my room to the workout area.
I can not blame the employees for the condition of this hotel. The management needs to take responsibility. It can not be so difficult.
