Excellent - 4.4 out of 5

Liked: The room was very comfy with plenty of room to move. The staff were extremely accommodating. It was close to places to eat.
Disliked: I thought that the bathroom was a little dated and it pooped water on the floor in the corner.

Short stay

Liked: Welcoming staff . Clean bathroom.
Disliked: Very dated room, the bed base was best left unseen, the carpet poor. The lift was very claustrophobic and the parking if you were a lady travelling on your own, difficult. The room was very hot despite a fan. However, I received a nice letter from Best Western explaining they had started a program of refurbishment , so it is only fair to give them a chance to put things right. The staff were welcoming. The price was fair for the location .

Liked: A typical British hotel, could do with a small amount of bedroom refurbishment
Disliked: The dreadful steak I was served up with last night, for a meal total of 51 I expect far better quality of food and why bother with a side plate if you do not give out bread at all

Good location, poor service.

Liked: Great location.
Disliked: The lift was very shaky and there is a sign saying that maximum 2 people WITHOUT luggage can fit. The room was tired and unbearably hot: there was a fan but that hardly helped. The receptionist was pleasant but had no welcoming smile... in fact there were a couple of staff milling around but none even looked at us when we arrived. We waited about 5 minutes before our presence was acknowledged. We left something in the room but when I went back in after we had checked out and the room had been cleaned, the item was not there: reception said nothing had been handed in! Breakfast was ok, nothing special. For the price we paid the hotel was very disappointing. Do these people never train to be welcoming?
