We stayed one night and found the hotel staff friendly and helpful . Good selection at breakfast and our room was clean and comfortable . Decent Wifi signal too. Room 303 has some good views over the river although there were some eerie noises coming from the adjacent cupboards during the night. Could it be a ghost or a noisy... More

I can't fathom how some establishments pass as accommodation. Beautiful on the outside but once you take that long walk to the ends of the earth where they place tour groups, things aren't so beautiful anymore. Rooms are appallingly tiny, especially for 2 people, staff in the restaurant are curt, rude and need to be trained in acceptable table service!!... More

This hotel is really handy for town and we got a really good online deal on the cost. The room was generally okay but with a very creaky bed. The major issue for us was the breakfast, we went down at 9:30am and breakfasts were served until 10am. They seemed to run out of everything (to the extent that one... More

The first night our room was ver cold. The room had no central heating. There was a heater on the was, inadequate. We complained, the Manager came but could do nothing. The saving grace was the spivey soup at the evening meal which warmed us up. Food was very good. Wouldn't go back or recommend. Overpriced.
