4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

My friend and I arrived at 1pm. Now maybe it's just me but in many hotels I have stayed at if you arrive a bit earlier to check in and the room is ready they have let us check in. I mean why not? Instead we could leave our bags in the reception area and return at 2pm. I thought... More

The original structure of the hotel appears to be 2 adjacent properties dating back to Victorian days. No lifts are available and I was not informed of that during the booking process. the singe room I was given was in what I believe to have been , the original attic. From the reception level to the room I counted 60... More

dirty bath, officious staff, noisy guests and no telephone in room. no fan either and wifi kept breaking down. Ugh, never again. Breakfast was OK but selling pot noodles in the bar does not make up for no dining room. Staff were unhelpful to say the least. The room was tiny for two people and the weather hot so we... More

Dear Coral H. Obviously I am very disappointed to read your review and, (as you are fully aware due to our lengthy telephone conversation) have felt the need to leave a response for the benefit of other potential guests, as quite often with negative reviews there are two sides to every story... Firstly please accept my sincere apologies regarding the... More

I stayed here for two nights as a last minute booking. I read some of the reviews and wasn't sure but overall it went well. I arrived after a 5 hour drive, found a spot outside the hotel, and popped in. The reception is explained the car park was full but offered me the £3 all day pass for the... More

The family room was lovely and great value for a family of five. Excellent hotel. I have given four star rather than five because the coffee at breakfast is out of a machine and not nice, and the kids were charged extra for hot chocolate (that was practically all they had). Otherwise no complaints at all.

Very good value for money though lacks some character. Bar area not very welcoming so that may be why it was empty. I would have sat in one of the lounge areas but not on my own. The breakfast room served its purpose but was dark in the basement and painted the hotel grey so didn't really get you going... More

Arrived on Friday the 5th of July at around 530pm and after driving for around 7 hours due to two major crashes on the M4/M5 we finally arrived at the hotel. As I walked in I saw a bar and a desk but it wasn’t the most clear reception area I have ever seen. So I asked the young lady... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is an old building that has been recently renovated to a high standard. The owner must have put in a lot of time and money but the end result is excellent. Our room was a superior , it was a good size, comfortable bed , very clean. It is 2 minutes from... More
