It was the restaurant that made the impression of the hotel was poor. Poor service, mess around noon (ended up eating at the bar, and it was not the world), the breakfast was OK, but not very inviting. The hotel had decent standard, clean and friendly staff.

very basic room, would not want to stay more than one night. Breakfast very poor for price, did not look at all inviting and poorly set out. Do not rate hot water for tea in flasks or coffee in flasks either.

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Not only did they charge me more on the internet then if I booked directly, but the place itself is horrible, especially for the amount of money they want. The room's chain lock was broken, the window wouldn't open, there was no A/C, there was weird white powder on the bed...I was afraid to sleep on the bed, it was DISGUSTING!!! The hotel is horrible. I would NOT recommend this to anyone, not even to my enemies! DO NOT STAY AT THIS PLACE!

rooms need definitely renovation, especially bathrooms. Carpets looked very dirty. Hotel direct at the motorway - not enough parking spaces (if parking in hotel-garage is possible, it is free of charge) Pub area very dirty, no clearing of tables for new guests during the whole evening.
