My wife & I stopped at Cargo on Friday night this week. We had Room 1, which is on the front of the premises and just above the bar. It was great!!! Brilliant, comfortable bed; excellent en suite wet room with a huge shower and a more than enough brewing facilities ithe room. It may have been a little noisy... More

Stayed for 1 night, mid-week. Hotel is easy to find and there is a long-stay car park just around the corner (£8/day - although you can't pre-load for the next day so need to pay again at 8am or before). Good sized rooms and the bathroom had a rain-shower head, spacious and well decorated. Staff were friendly at check-in, breakfast... More

This hotel has the feel of a family run organization - even if that is not the case. Right from even before our arrival they were friendly and helpful - agreeing to an early check-in and sorting out parking over the phone. The hotel itself seemed very cosy and warm - we were on the top floor for NYE and... More

I'm used to generic chain hotels on my business trips, so this was a welcome change. My room was spacious, comfy and warm. The bathroom was really great with a walk in shower and a clever night light. Staff were friendly and helpful and showed me around my room. Can't say anything about the breakfast since I overslept! That must... More

Can't fault the staff all very friendly. Stayed in room 1 & 2 now and both a bit tiered. Needs a damn good clean up. Curtains not hung properly. Net curtains really dusty! Windows need painting. Light bulbs not all working. Beds ver comfy. Shower in room 1 hardly has any pressure and therefore takes forever to wash your hair.... More

My friend and I had an attic room - spacious, aesthetically pleasing a combination of distressed and modern furniture. Request for sofa bed to be made up was done whilst we were out - sofa bed and bed very comfortable. I have forgotten the name of the chief honcho - the guy who ran things - but he was so... More

This was a group celebration for 20. Cargo provided a private seating area and a very good buffet, all in a relaxed, friendly and welcoming manner. It was a good place to hold a lunchtime party. Recommended.

Friendly staff, excelent room. Arrived late at night on a saturday, the bar staff welcomed me and did my check in. One of them even gave me is personal username and password to the wifi (faster internet connection). Only regret... not staying more time, because I had a booking in other place.

We stayed in the loft room for a birthday break away from our little one. We were hoping for the 'romantic getaway' advertised for this room - the most expensive in the hotel. However, the room was a real disappointment. The floor is stained and a rug used to cover part of the floor is a tripping hazard. The room... More

First impressions were not great, as the hallway leading to the rooms and then the room itself was generally "well worn". Having said that the room was spacious and the bed was great with good bedding and linens. Generally cleaned fine but they really need to clean all the paintwork with some jif or sugar soap, as everywhere is showing... More

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to comment. We apologise regarding your recent visit but pleased certain aspects were to your liking. We do market ourselves as a town-house rather than a hotel but will keep an eye on the rooms if they become very worn. Kind Regards, Cargo More
