The hotel is an old pair of buildings joined together, the reception is the only modern part. Ageing decor and carpets leave a musty smell around the hotel, and it's like a maize to navigate. Our room was large, however no duvet on the bed but sheets, dark wood furniture, a small TV. There was a door to an outdoor... More

Great value, the staff were amazing, nothing was to much trouble for them|! The food was fantastic value and my room was clean, comfortable and well appointed en-suite. Brilliant My wife and I stayed for a short (3 night) break. It was a much needed break, we left feeling revitalised and extremely happy. Thankyou.

The staff were so accommodating, but sadly the very poor food and musty smelling rooms, let the hotel down terribly. Though I am sure the room was clean, the carpet was very old, wallpaper peeling. Bed was comfortable though.

In the morning there is a selection of cereals, fruit and buffet for English breakfast.No mushrooms or black pudding were available however bacon, sausages, hash browns, beans, tomatoes, fried slice and fried eggs available (you can request scrambled or poached eggs). In the evening there is a buffet for... More

Just come back from staying at this hotel. We paid 100 pounds per night. The bedroom was large but dark and the furnishing very old and old fashioned. The carpet was dull and stained. In the corridor the carpets were threadbare the doors needed a coat of paint the wallpaper coming off in places. Not worth the money we paid.

The service was fine and I was able to park on site. The location was cknvenient and easy to find. The bed was small, but the room was clean and tidy. I can agree with others' comments that some features are a little shabby or outdated - however, this didn't detract too much from the overall experience. I also agree... More

After having a terrible experience at the marquis hotel opposite we arrived at the rainbow hotel desperate for a room for the night. Craig the manager was amazing not only sorting us a room but upgrading us knowing we were stressed. The room was gorgeous and the staff were amazing. The receptionist was so friendly and helpful. I can not... More
