We had to make a last-minute, large, family booking here, to attend a funeral nearby. We arrived in the early evening, midweek, having travelled all the way from north-east Scotland in a convoy of cars. We stayed 1 night, in 3 family rooms, on the ground floor and one single room, on the first floor. All the rooms were clinically spartan and minimalistically furnished, with no tea or coffee-making facilities in any of them. There were only adequate towels, a bath mat, a couple of bars of soap and toilet roll suppled and we found the baths both deep and dangerously slippy, particularly for elderly people and children in our party. There were no food or dining facilities in the hotel but, food, drink and additional toiletries are available to purchase at shops outside, a short walk away. As it was pouring with rain when we arrived, this stroll, particularly for the pensioners in our party, was a bit unpleasant. There were a very limited supply of kettles available on request and we encountered a shortage of spare pillows too. The sofabeds were in need of replacement and the functional stools were uncomfortable. The hotel is located beside a huge lorry park, so it was very noisy in the early morning. This necessitated keeping the windows closed overnight, so the rooms were a bit stuffy. We imagine that this requirement would mean the rooms could be stifling in the summer. All that said, reception staff were understanding, welcoming and friendly and the hotel was not expensive. Despite the cheap cost, based on this experience and compared to those we have had in other similar budget accommodation, we would not book this hotel again and would recommend others go elsewhere too, if they can!
