  • Single

    very central, warm and clean with an EXCELLENT breakfast.

    staff distant and not friendly or welcoming

  • Older travelers

    excellent but for sulky breakfast service

    sulky breakfast service

  • Older travelers

    Proximity to town centre was good

    Found the service a little remote if anything.. hardly ever saw anyone was issued with a key for the room upon arrival and that was it.. just brief encounter with young girl in the morning serving breakfast who hadnt a smile for anyone

  • Older travelers

    Hospitality & good cooked breakfast

    Being a non-smoker I was aware of the smell of cigarette smoke in the evenings when we were in our room, something I really dislike. I would hesitate to reccommend this good hotel because of this.

  • Single

    Bad reception on tv and only 5 channels. Room to small and cluttered. I had to ask for heating to be put on. no internet access. Incoming calls tranferred to their mobile, they physically had to come upstairs hand me their mobile for my incoming call, then waited outside my door for me to hand back telephone

  • Older travelers

    a well positioned hotel, good breakfasts

    but luke warm water not enough for a bath!

  • Older travelers

    Excellent value for money terrific breakfasts

  • Older travelers

    The welcome, assistance with luggage as we are elderly, large comfortable room, excellent breakfasts.

  • Older travelers

    The room was serviced daily, very comfortable and the breakfast was superb.

    Breakfast waitress's churlish attitude was comical - however the novelty would soon wear off!

  • Single

    Bacon and mushrooms at breakfast were good. Free parking in the hotel car park. Nice shower with plenty of hot water.

    The room was very small for a double. On arrival there were loads of big bags on the landing by my room, presumably linens for laundry. The girl who served breakfast was aloof and unfriendly, as though she didn't want to be there. The porter who let me in (albeit late at 10pm) carried my bag and put it outside the room but didn't show me into the room. Traffic noise was a problem so was glad I packed ear plugs.

  • Older travelers

    Stayed there before. Very good central location and small,friendly, informal, individual hotel.

  • Older travelers

    Great location, within walking distance of town centre. Nice quiet area.

    Although the room was large everything seemed a little tired, needs a freshen up, an odd damp patch and water left in the kettle. Over priced

  • Single

    Hotel tired, bathrooms shabby and old

  • Older travelers

    It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere in a very luxurious room which we had quite cheap. Very near to all shops and all restaurants. Lovely breakfast choice.

  • Older travelers

    The breakfast waitress is awful, so rude and impolite. The interior is really run down. There is no WiFi in the room, not acceptable these days. We will never stay here again and do not recommend it.
