Lovely hotel above a pub but wasn't too noisy really, great location in middle of the town, my only groan was the room was on a slant including the bed and I actually had to sleep at the other end of the bed half way through the night .. that said it was lovely and clean, nice furnishings but to...

This is a great hotel - very central, modern clean and comfortable rooms with excellent showers. The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Breakfast was also very good. 4 stars rather than 5 because the rooms at the front can be noisy at weekends - there's a bar across the road with a late licence! Ask for a room... More

On arrival, we were greeted by a lovely receptionist, who talked us through the necessary information. She guided us to our room, and informed us of everything we needed to know. We ate downstairs, and had a lovely platter of cold meats, cheeses and chutneys, which were all delicious. Breakfast was also delicious, fresh and plentiful. We would recommend to... More

Stayed for two nights. The bar is really busy, the meals are tasty and well presented. The room was nice, the bathroom small. The staff were pleasant and the freshly cooked breakfast was tasty, quality scoff! No parking but there is a safe secure car park a minute away, a car park concession would be nice.

Excellent one night stay. Rooms very good, staff helpful and friendly, very nice breakfast. Unfortunately too late to book a meal but looked lovely. Only down side having a front room was the noise from the street. Would highly recommend it and will be coming back.

There are great walks to be had nearby that are all clearly signposted. The centre and main shopping streets , arcades etc are only a couple of... More

The staff were always helpful, the room was clean and quite spacious (23) and the food - both evening meal and breakfast - were excellent. Choice of ales in the... More
