1 night stay in the family room. Car parking and breakfast included. Breakfast small compared to other places we have stayed. No mushrooms - when we queried this we were told they had run out. Fair enough but it would have been nice to have been told this as they served rather than waiting to be asked and then offering... More

Very friendly owners, nice breakfast, comfortable clean rooms and cheap. The owners go above and beyond for you. My only negative was the rooms can get a bit chilly, and the tea and coffee sachets aren't replaced... but apart from that very nice and welcoming hotel.

Ideal as contractors accommodation, big room, ensuite, friendly, helpful staff, right in the centre of town. Rooms need a bit of tlc, but it's budget hotel, so don't expect too much. Would I stay here again, for work, yes, with the family, probably not.
