My partner and i stayed at the beginning of April. From the outside the pub does look a little dour, but once inside, the rooms are excellent. Very clean, lovely wetroom, clean linen and complimentary coffee and biscuits, 24/7. The staff were very friendly and although slightly more than the local, IBIS budget, i would rather stay here. Only downside... More

Stayed here over a Saturday night and great location not far from some good night life. John was great showing me the room as I arrived later than my 2 other travelling companions (did have a problem getting in though as no answer on the door at 6 so went into the pub section to enquire and the older barman...

I know I'm delayed with the review since my stay, but the Fountain is still fresh in mind. And i still pass on to friends of how clean and tidy it is. I was allocated room 7, and it was a lush room, the complimentary coffee machine was a saviour. Thank you lads for making it a great stay, see... More

Stayed for two Nights, Friday and Saturday. Excellent room, Nicely decorated the towels and the bedding were top quality. Wet room was a bonus, especially with the underfloor heating. I have never spent so long in the shower before. Tea and coffee in the little corridor outside was a nice touch. John and Eric were perfect hosts. People write all... More

Excellent rooms, immaculate and clean to a really high standard which you'd pay and arm and leg for elsewhere. Located right within the gay village area. Large flat screen TV's you don't get in many small hotels plus round the clock access. Regarding parking, noticed it is possible to park right outside even though there's no car park. Defo stay...

Stayed here many times. Its very welcoming, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The wet rooms are great. Free coffee / tea machine outside the rooms. Can recommend the breakfast sandwich. Delivered to our room right on time. Hot and very tasty sausage & egg. We really enjoyed our visit. Thanks guys.
