    The room was very warm. If I opened the window to let in a breeze it was too noisy to sleep. I was on the front of the building so had road and rail noise to contend with.

    There seemed to just be skeleton staff on during this period. Only one staff member on over breakfast which was disgusting. I had asked for a fried egg but scrambled egg came including shell with salty bacon and dry croissants ! I would not want to stay again !!!

    Location and price

    Car park was small and you were not able to book a space

  • Couple

    The size, cleanliness and price were excellent. This was matched by the friendly and helpful staff. I would definitely recommend it.

    I really can't think of a thing. Perhaps the signage leading to the hotel could have been better. We were also worried a little about the type of area it was in (looked a bit run down and "possibly" not safe late at night).

    Very clean hotel with friendly helpful staff

    On site parking, but we were not informed that we had to pay for it, until after we had booked.

  • Group of friends

    Very nice comfortable room with good facilities good size tv screen

    The parking facilities for the hotel were very very poor I did not appreciate having to walk to and from a car park at night in what appeared to be not very nice part of town I definately would not stay in this hotel again because of the parking and the car park charges although I have no complaints about the hotel itself If the car park problems could be sorted out I would consider staying again although I don't expect that Ramada will take the slightest bit of notice about my complaint and don't expect to hear from you again but you may surprise me !!

    Contemporary moderrn room - also good lounge and restaurant.

    Observations - helpful to communicate that 'limited' parking is available but [secure] alternative is NCP adjacent to BR station.

    This hotel was fantastic. Great value for money. We arrived quite late at the hotel but the reception staff was really polite and helpful. Our room was clean and tidy. Then at breakfast the choice was immense. We both really enjoyed our stay. Thank you

    The only downside to this hotel is the parking. There is only a small carpark for quite a big hotel We was lucky as we managed to get the last parking space but people were coming in after us saying there was no room and they was being told they would have to park down the road.

    everything really - you could come and go as you liked without suspicion but service was there if you wanted it.great clean room and food.

    a bit of a walk from the centre. a shuttle bus would be good.

  • Single

    Central location to walk into town to eat. Gym, although only has a bike and two running machines. Enough for me! Close to railway station.

    Small car park you are lucky to get in and you pay £6 for the privilege.

    It was a pleasent experience which I hope to replicate at the Ramada Encore in the future.

    My only fault was with two members of staff on the front desk. when I arrived the female staff member didnt seem to know what she was doing, the same can be said for the member of staff on the desk of my departure. Other than this I am more than happy to return someday soon. It would be nice if these problems can be rectified by the time I return.
