Nice location but a bit further from the centre than I'd expected but there are plenty of buses and you can get a £3.50 all day ticket. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was small but what I had expected, it was clean and tidy and we had a nice view of the garden. Being on the... More

We had a warm welcome when we arrived at reception, rooms were clean warm & had a good shower, beds were OK maybe a bit to firm for me but we slept well. Didn't eat in the hotel as were were going to a gig. Good location with a bus stop outside. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Minto for two nights on the 5th and 6th December and received a very warm reception on our arrival after a long train journey. Our room was well presented and very clean no complaints at all. We decided to have our evening meal at the hotel and unfortunately we were not impressed with it. One of... More

Spent one night here and had no problems.Staff very helpful. Very clean and tidy. Good full breakfast. You can walk to city centre or there are plenty buses that will get you there (or near enough) I would stay there again in the future.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights at the end of October. We walked to the hotel from the train station which was manageable but I would recommend a bus or taxi as it is further than I expected! The check in was quick and the room was great for the price we paid. It was a little... More

If it had not been for the very nice receptionist I would have rated the Minto Hotel as terrible. We were attending a function close by and that is why we chose the Minto. Checked in and dropped of out bags and went of to our function. It was only on our settling in for the night when we returned... More

Good clean hotel with friendly staff, great shower and nice breakfast but our bed was very uncomfy - 2 soft singles zipped together with gap in the middle. Single not wide enough to sleep 2 and if we tried to sleep on a mattress each we didnt have enough duvet so I ended up in the gap. We could also... More

The Minto Hotel is independently owned/managed and this gives it a unique charm not found at the larger corporate hotels. Some people may find these 'charms' unacceptable, but I personally like the trend and quirkiness often found in independent hotels, which often reflect the town or city they are in. We arrived at 6pm and were welcome by the receptionist... More

I booked the Minto as a birthday treat for my friend. A little outside the City but so easy to access by frequent buses and you are 5 mins away. The hotel sits on a nice quiet road, staff are very friendly and the hotel is clean and pretty. Would defo stay again great value for the money.
