Single room was very snug. Bed okay for one night. Room very clean. Free Wi-Fi which worked well and a good breakfast included . Hotel ideally located for access to Historic buildings and excellent public park. There is a good variety of bars and restaurants within 10 minutes walking distance .

Great choice on the menu and prices are realistic, not over priced like many places. Food was lovely as was the conservatory area we were sat in, not cold as expected. Lots of parking to rear of hotel and handy for the High Street shops.

Thankfully I didn't spend much time in the room and the rest of the hotel is rather nice with the breakfast being... More

normally I wouldn't write a negative review, ordered mix grill and on my second mouthful found a piece of brown glass in my meal,then a second piece. Was given a second meal and charged for the privilege of having to wait as well and was only a partial meal with liver falling apart to bread crumbs. Not a good response... More
