Hotel room was clean, good nights sleep, lovely breakfast. Staff very friendly, location although being in High Street was nice and quite at night even with window open. Menu was well presented and food to a very high standard.

They have only been managing the hotel for three months but all is going well. We decided to have a light lunch in the lovely sunny beer garden, then later... More

I had 4 days at this lovely hotel. Travelling alone with no car this was the perfect place for me with easy access to local bus routes. My room was lovely, overlooking the street. The staff were always friendly and helpful. I found the waiter/waitress service to be extremely prompt and accurate. And even when she was rushed off her... More

We spent one night at this hotel as passing through area -the staff were very welcoming. Food was very good (the salmon and scrambled egg for breakfast was amazing). The room was spacious but very warm. A fan was provided and was on when we arrived. The windows opened onto a very noisy road, which didn't really bother us for... More
