3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Overnight stopover but overpriced and overrated in a beautiful historic town. Free parking after 6pm, quiet in the evenings midweek with very few alternative options. Would not recommend and would not revisit.

We booked accommodation for our son's wedding. So glad we did. The price of the rooms reflects value-for-money. Not a Premier Inn, but a real old-fashioned travellers inn where looking after your guest's comfort and well-being is a high priority with all the staff. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. We slept very well. In the evening of our... More

The food is 2nd to none, but walking out I feel I should wipe my feet......the carpets are RANK !!! We only eat there, don't stay. The manager is great, looks after us all very well when we go to eat. He tells us he is relocating to Devon, which is Dorset's loss, Devon's gain

First class centre for walking week end. Staff extremely helpful at all times, rooms clean and tidy.and a very busy place at the end of the week. The choice of food at the evening meal was just right, not too much but a very good selection across the board. The wine list gave a good all round choice and the... More

The staff are the essence of this establishment. Helpful, friendly, welcoming. The hotel is perfectly located. The building really needs an upgrade as it is a little tired. The staff deserve better support from the corporation which owns the building.
