Beautiful older hotel - easy walking to town. Rooms were large with very comfy beds and good size bathrooms. Enjoyed group dinners at the hotel -- food was very good and service excellent. Fun pub within the hotel with live music nightly.

There is so much character to this hotel with it's dark wood panelling, red carpeting, sweeping staircase and lovely stained glass. It is indeed a charming old place. Our room was cozy, warm and comfortable. So clean you could eat off the bathroom floor..... it was gleaming!! I liked the heated towel rack. One complaint would be the half shower... More

Very friendly staff, central location and a very good restaurant and bar and an active cleaning service. However the cons outweigh the pros. The wallpaper was pealing, the bed was hard, the shower curtain was disgusting, the shower was broken, the food and decoration is nicer in the "Ross Hotel" next door. Also, it's not secure. I opened the door... More
