    They don't penny-pinch on breakfast. The buffet style provision was much better than higher profile hotels that I have visited on past occasions.

    As a non-smoker, I didn't like the fact that it was a smokers' room that I stayed in. I was there five days and the smell was off-putting for my entire stay.

    I like that the hotel is central,easy to get to and has ample parking. The food is very good and the staff are all friendly and helpful.

    I found that the bathroom floor wasn't cleaned properly prior to my stay or during it,there is dust around the pipes under the sink. I received a new supply of milk on my second day, but no t-bags!

    The central location, near town , near beach, good breakfast..

    The hotel could do with the bedrooms updating and modernising.....

    hot water and a good shower plus cheap wine

    arrogant staff, uncomfortable bed and cramped room, excessive heat on the food warmer in the dining room, poor quality and badly cooked food and overall the hotel is 'tired' and 'shabby'

    The location is very central and there was free parking. We also got a very cheap deal. Following various complaints the very friendly manager offered my fiance and I a free dinner and bottle of wine. A good turn around after some awful service.

    Receptionist was incredibly rude; £2 charge for using credit or debit card (what hotel expects cash payment?); had to pay on arrival; waiting staff at breakfast were incompetent and tables were all full of dirty crokery; toilet broke, bathroom looked grubby; and there was food in a drawer on the landing.

    Although convenient for the International Conference centre, the hotel is situated on a busy thoroughfare with single paned windows.

    The location was the only good thing about it. They had a procedure to follow to not have your towels changed every day (environmentally friendly) of which we wanted to do, but they completely ignored the procedure and gave us clean towels every day, so after the second day out of the seven we had to put the "do not disturb" sign up on the door so we wouldn't get towels every day. But, doing that we also didn't get shampoo, toilet paper and beds made which was a choice we had to make.

    Decor is way out of date, my brother's room wall paper peeling and the plaster falling off the ceiling. Sausage and bacon were not thoroughly cooked and greenish on the underside, so were afraid to eat it.

    Great

    I couldn't fault The Roadhouse at all. Rooms were pretty basic, but what they lacked in luxury, they definetly made up in their helpful staff, fantastic location and lovely breakfast.

    Rooms could be updated somewhat and cleaned a bit more thoughly.
