I'd say this place is more of a restaurant/bar with rooms than a Hotel with a restaurant/bar. The reception is located round the side with a small office at which you need to ring a bell for service. Our room was on the top floor with a balcony. Everywhere you walked on the top floor the floor creaked. The balcony... More

Stayed here using an itison.com voucher. Double room plus two full breakfasts in the morning. Short walking distance (maybe 10 mins) into middle of the city centre. Bed was comfy and the room was very clean. We were in room 101 which seemed to overlook the back of the hotel - it was very quiet. The bar of the hotel... More

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights B&B on a voucher deal. Room very basic with extremely limited hanging and storage space - 1 coat hanger - but clean with decent TV and tea / coffee making facilities. Bathroom clean and tidy with good shower. Bed not hugely comfortable but ok for a night or two. Walls are very... More

Hotel is in a lovely location, away from the city centre but easy to access via bus or taxi. Staff were great, food also and atmosphere in general. Rooms have been nicely renovated, we had one with a balcony which was fun and bright. The only and unfortunately the biggest let down was the mattress, it was like sleeping on... More

We stopped in at the Great Western in the late afternoon on the off chance that they might have a double for us. We were given an excellent reception, clear recommendations, good impartial advice and a top notch breakfast to get us started the next day. Really enjoyed our stay.

My friend and I have just returned from an overnight stay at the hotel. We arrived in a taxi from the station (£6). We were on the first floor room 109. No problems with noise, lumpy beds and the pillows, well that all depends what you are use too. The room was comfortable enough, no it's not the Hilton, but... More
