Around 25 of us stayed here last weekend. Rooms were basic but none of us expected anything else. Bar service was excellent. Dave had no problems with keeping the bar open late and serving yourself if he was busy. I missed breakfast both mornings but I heard good things about it. Dave was always up for a laugh as well....

We were a group of 4 girls in town for the weekend. Dave, Julie and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms have everything you need and the location was brilliant. Would definitely recommend and stay again next time I'm in town.

Arrived at this hotel and checked out within the hour, waited about 5 minutes out in the rain for the owner to appear drunk and proceeded to tell us we had woken him up. He held the door open for us and took one of our bag into reception while he insulted us and told us to take them upstairs.... More

We stayed here for one night. Very disappointed. On arrival staff not friendly, car park very small down a back alley. We was shocked at the cleaners swearing in the corridor. When we arrived in our room it was very dated, small and smelt. Bed very uncomfortable and very small to say it was a double bed, mattress was lumpy... More
