This hotel is relatively cheap - that is true. But you should not expect too much for the price. Room design typically British - quite cosy, but showing its age. I had the room in the basement, whith a "fantastic" view on the underside of the staircase... Breakfast - I used to have better. Except of that - some inconveniences.... More

Stayed here for a few nights and the staff was friendly, the hotel was clean and the location is perfect. I also enjoyed my full English breakfast. The hotel itself felt nice and warm and homely. I would definitely stay here again :)

I arrived in the morning after travelling overnight from London and the owner Mr Alum who was lovely had the room cleaned immediately knowing that I was tired, which meant I could go in much earlier than the normal 3pm check in time, he also asked the deputy manager Catherine who was a lovely warm friendly girl to make me...
