I was very disappointed with our overnight stay as the photos on the website showed a light airy clean hotel which was far from the truth. Thankfully I only had to stay one night otherwise I would have looked for alternative accommodation. The entire hotel looked dated and tired with staff attitudes to match. One couple made a complaint about the substandard food they'd received and instead of an apology the barman was rude and abrupt with them which wasn't what you wanted to hear in a public area with lots of guests around. The bedding was clean but he room needed a good vacuum and there were large dustballs behind the bathroom door. On top of that the neighbours were clearly up for partyng and we were kept awake from 12.30am until we had to get up at 3.45am - not pleasant! The shower over the bath was rusted and the dirt/mildew in the grouting was very off putting. The only good thing I will say is that the reception staff were very helpful and apologetic and dare I say almost embarrassed about the complaints - as if they had heard them many times before! I was grateful that the parking was ok for my 10 day holiday and felt fairly secure.

Very nice service, good hotel, comfortable. In need of some TLC/maintenance but good for a night either end of a holiday.

really easy and convenient parking and we took advantage of the evening meal which was a great value sunday carvery, also didnt have to leave our keys with reception just our registration number, so a real smooth pick up when we got back. Taxi service booked by reception was very efficient. Room was clean and standard, just what you need for a good nights rest before flying

Firstly may I say that the parking and the service that I received from FHR was excellent especially as my flight from Egypt was delayed by two days. Alternative hotel dates and extended parking was not an issue, even taking in to consideration that the Government travel advice given had caused worry. FHR made booking amendments and communicated these to me in a way that seemed effortless for their staff, saving me and my partner unnecessary worry - I could not praise FHR staff highly enough ..... and that is where the praise finishes. The rating for FHR would be 5 stars for sure! ..... Unfortunately your rating system goes from 1 star to 5 stars - the hotel experience deserves no less than zero stars .... to be perfectly honest, this experience was the worst I have ever known. I travel the country extensively on business, staying at many hotels. I was greeted at reception by being offered a smoking or non-smoking bedroom - I wish that I had taken the smoking option as the room we were given was stinking of mould and tobacco may have masked the odour. The carpets in the bedroom were sticky and stained, the bathroom was mouldy, the chairs in the room were dirty ....... everything was particularly dated, although the hotel is about 20 years old as I understand ..... I would just like to add, that the room I described was the better alternative to the first room we were given ..... I would not recommend this place to anyone - having read Trip Advisor reviews since, I question myself as to why I booked here in the first place.

Hotel ok. Bit tired in places. Ok for a night before going away. Very busy in reception area. Lots of men just sitting around and outside smoking and drinking made me feel a little uneasy. May have been just a one off. Easy parking and as you keep your keys no problem when you return to collect your car. Did not eat at hotel so can't comment on that.
