We had a large family room for the 4 of us (which aren't easy to find!) everything you needed in room, extra pillows, telly, tea, biscuits etc. really clean and comfortable. The historic photographs around the hotel were a delight. Lovely evening meal and breakfast all reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were above the kitchens which... More

Stayed here for three nights and as previous reviews, yes the room was quiet small but as we were only sleeping in it it wasn't a big issue. The room was clean which is the main thing. The food in the bar/restaurant was lovely and all the staff were very friendly. When we arrived we were given a twin room... More

I booked 9 rooms at this hotel in February for 26th July for a family 60th Birthday celebration. I called in and phoned several times as I was offered 10% discount for a large booking. Every time I asked about this I was told a manager would get back to me, no one ever did. Eventually I booked another hotel... More

Our room was unfortunately at the front of the hotel. It was a warm night and we had to have the windows open as there was no air conditioning. The noise was due to a combination of late night revelers and clients drinking outside, noisy taxi rank with taxis running their engines, and finally a market being erected very early... More

We stayed in a tiny room which was so hot it was practically impossible to sleep and the bathroom was even hotter. The air con unit didn't work and also sounded like a jumbo jet was landing in the room. Our friends who stayed just off the courtyard were woken at 2am to the sound of furniture being dragged around... More

This has to be the hottest room I've ever stayed in. We were on the 3 rd floor and the room was tiny. There was a very noisy air con unit but there was no way you could sleep with it on so had to settle for the fan. The electric also kept tripping when we boiled the kettle. Thankfully... More

Staff were very welcoming. Room overlooking town was comfortable and roomy. Thought the price very reasonable at £70+; breakfast rates also reasonable. Despite the bar being packed we did not hear any noise. Negatives - only one chair in a room for two. No TV remote (could have asked no doubt, but we arrived late and by the time we... More

Hottest room i've ever stayed in. Small rooms, tiny windows Amazed that breakfast is not included at what is high room rate. Maybe they should start including it to mitigate against lack of staff/price/effort to get in and get any service. Only hotel in town. and it shows

We stayed at this still quite newly refurbished hotel on a Sunday night while visiting family locally. The room rate on a Sunday night is £45 as opposed to £75 on other nights of the week, so that was an attraction in booking. The room was fine; a bit small but perfectly adequate for our purposes and the brief time... More
