I stayed here for a mid-week break. Stayed here before, location is ideal so central to the town & shops. Across the road from the Castle which is beautiful. It was very warm & humid in the rooms & there was a fan in there which is a great idea. Only for that it would have been very warm. Staff... More

Loved this hotel! Fantastic location, right in the heart of the town, within walking distance to pretty much everything! My room was clean and looked new. Staff is extra friendly and they have great food too!

The hotel is perfectly located for the centre and its attraction. The hotel is generally well maintained although some elements look a little dated. This is especially true of the leisure facilities attached, although the pool is plenty large enough to be able to swim laps. The quality of the food available at dinner is high and the buffet breakfast... More
