Me and my fiancé stay here nearly every weekend as we dnt live together yet nd av an awkward living Situation. It’s the perfect getaway for us. Big bed comfy friendly staff. 5 min taxi from the bars and clubs into town. Recommend for anyone on business or couples. We av yet to try the restaurant bt we checked menu and a wide range available

For what we paid it was OK but only 1 socket & it was no where near the only mirror, no chef so we couldn't sample the food if we had wanted to. The room was clean & bed comfortable but the bathroom waste bin wasn't emptied on the second day nor was the soap dispenser checked, having said that we would use again if in the area.

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for two nights, it looked decent from the images on the website such as the views out of some of the rooms. However upon arrival I must say we were very disappointed. We paid over £70 for two nights and we booked a month in advance. The room was very small and when we went to plug our phones in to charge after a long journey we very quickly realised there was only a single socket. Considering we had our laptops and phones that would need charging we were very taken aback. We decided we'd have to take it in turns and work around how we would charge our laptops. I would expect things like this to be made apparent to customers before they book because it can be a major set back although I appreciate it may be due to safety. Then I went to see if there was a hair dryer which thankfully there was although it was very small, I did think to take one with me but on the website it did say one was provided. I turned it on, it did not work. If i went to complain the only thing they could possible have done is to change our rooms as the hair dryers weren't attached by a socket which you could just take out and replace and we'd just unpacked all our stuff. I also noticed there were no spoons or mugs for coffee or teas just a plastic takeaway cup for teas and coffee. Considering we were staying for two days having at least a mug and some spoons like you do get in the majority of hotels, would have been handy. In addition to this the sink in the bathroom was terrible at draining the water it would take ages and fill up very quick. The shower had a mind of it's own flitting between very hot and cold even though it was set to a decent temperature to begin with. The mattress was terrible with us being able to feel every spring or whatever it was in the bed. We should have complained and we were expecting to be asked how our stay was however we weren't. We felt there was very little use in complaining considering all the rooms looked exactly the same we couldn't book into anywhere else without paying a ridiculous amount. I also ended up paying £10 for Wi-Fi for 24hours because I hadn't realised you could ask at the reception and get it for £3. Normally Wi-Fi information is in the hotel room or you are made aware at reception. to ask anything you had to go down two floors and across the car park to get to reception even though I thought a direct dial telephone was provided in the rooms. I am saying normally because I have been to a fair few hotels and I guess I had the basic expectations. Comparing to the Bradford Campanile Hotel this doesn't come close. Considering I said to the staff about some of the hiccups we were having and they seemed non interested I just felt detailing all the issues would be pointless. Sorry but it just wasn't a pleasant experience at all.

Polite and pleasant receptionist. Clean bathroom and bedroom although a bit dated. Unfortunately had a very unsuccessful sleep due to the mattress. It definitely needed to be changed as the springs where coming through.

Don’t expect 5 star luxury BUT clean, comfortable and warm. Good powerful shower and large bathroom, but bath a bit small. Great value bar/ restaurant although only serve bottle beer. Staff friendly and helpful. Only paid £49 for 2 nights. Midweek tends to be workers/buisiness men, weekend party people but was not disturbed at all

The accommodation was ok for the price paid. Decor is dated but so are a lot of more expensive hotels. All areas are clean enough. They had issue with fire alarm early hours and it took quite a while to reset but nothing feels quick when your woken up at 3 in the morning. This doesn't happen all the time thou. The breakfast is nice enough but if I'm honest if I stay again I would go either way up the main road to one of the hotels there as the breakfast is better value. At £8.75 I think it probably a couple of quid high, sorry. A good point is from looking at this site the management at least read the comments and respond to good or bad which many don't. Staff were all very nice. I would stay again for business stay.

I needed a place to stay for 1 night on a small budget and I found this hotel. It was brilliant. The customer service was fantastic, both on check in and breakfast. The room was adequate for anyone's needs, hair dryer, shampoo, shower gel, extremely white towels, plenty of coat hangers and lovely and warm. My only critisim was no teaspoons to stir tea/ coffee and lack of plug sockets, but for one night I can't recommend this small budget hotel enough. A very special thank you to the young lady at breakfast who was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. breakfast.

I've been stopping here a couple of times a month for the last 5 yrs. I've always been happy with the hotel as it's good value for money. Always clean and tidy and pleasant staff. However I stayed this week and the duvets on the bed really need updating. They are so thin and worn. Alternatively provide wool blankets like you used to do. Happy to have a basic room at low cost but everyone needs a warm bed. Hope you invest in the basics otherwise you're going to lose your core customers.

This hotel is very basic, as suggested by the price. Our bed had 2 very different sides to the same mattress- one fairly comfortable, one not at all. The pillows are very thin and there were no extra available. The hairdryer on the wall was broken but another was available from reception. Tea and coffee was provided in the room along with soap and shampoo/shower gel. The electric heater on the wall kept the room really warm and the shower was surprisingly powerful. Better value breakfast is available close by- all you can eat at the Toby Carvery across the main road for £4.49- I would have been disappointed to have paid £8.95 for the cooked breakfast here. Access to the rooms is via a staircase in the accommodation block which is separate from the reception and restaurant. If you require a few more home comforts then this perhaps isn't the place for you.

Don't stay here on a Saturday night, it's like the Wild West. Loads of kids pre loading for a night on the tiles. Staff must be used to it, they seem to have grouped all the likely suspects together at one end of the block. Still hear them though. This hotel can feel a little unsafe late at night after the staff have gone home.
