      Staff were friendly

      So many things happened. The card worked for one day when I was staying for two. After main course I was not asked if the meal was ok or if I wanted anything else, it was do you want to pay now .the bed was not put back in its original state after night one .the tissue I left on the floor was left. There was no finesse to things. I know I am not paying good money but these little touches make the difference. I am more likely now not to use you again.

      Convenient location on A1. Good Indian restaurant in Sandy ( The Gandhi in Sandy) about 10 minutes walk, but crossing A1 on foot was a little scary.

      Rooms at front of hotel are a little noisy due to traffic on A1.

      Did the job - room was comfortable enough, bathroom was clean.

      There is noise from the road due to location, evening meal if not taking one of the limited choice special meal deals is over-priced, as are the drinks. Boasts A la Carte menu - which at best is basic with limited options and in a standard holiday-inn style dining room with basic waitress service who failed to even apologise when I commented that half of my meal was badly cooked/prepared. Overall I would probably stay here again if the purpose of the stay is just somewhere with a convenient location to get some sleep - and the hotel night rate was cheap enough.

      Very convienant for main road network. Pleasant setting

      The dining facilities were small therefore when breakfast came we had to wait 45 minutes before we could get a seat in the dining area. Very disappointing

      Although we were given early check in, when phoning to arrange this (we were due to be at a wedding at 1pm) I was told that it wasn't likely to be possible as the cleaners have their trolly's on one level and don't like moving them around to accommodate early check in....not quite the customer service I am used to with Holiday Inn's! The double mattress dipped in the middle, this led to a very poor night's sleep for both me and my husband. The breakfast room was far too cramped, once in your seat, if you required any further food from the buffet other guests had to be disturbed and get up to allow enough room to squeeze past.

      See Below please

      We were very dissapointed with the stay. The rooms were very old fashioned, none of the furnishing matched. The kettle worked only by keeping your finger on the on switch until it started boiling, the toilet did not flush properly. There were brown marks on the bathroom door which could have been blood, chocolate or faeces?The breakfast was adequate. I did tell the receptionist about the toilet when we checked out but to be honest we should have complained on arrival.A Full refurbishment is needed in my opinion to bring the standard back up to good value for money.
