The acid test for any hotel is it's breakfast time coffee. Too often a decent cooked breakfast is spoilt by the accompanying pot of mud coloured water. But not at Penny Street Bridge. Here the early morning coffee is every bit as good as the rooms, the beds, the super modern bathrooms, the food and the every smiling staff. In... More

Getting a freshly cooked breakfast with a good choice was a real treat. 17 of us enjoyed a meal on Saturday evening and the food was... More

Stayed on a late Sunday night preparing for an early Monday meeting. Very welcoming and accommodating staff. Slight downside, they finished serving food earlier than the documented 8:30 on Sunday evening. I arrived and had to venture out for food, no room service available. Breakfast was of good quality and served swiftly. Room was clean, quiet and had a great... More

Check in swift and hassle free. Parked car in car park opposite for a small fee. This hotel serves multiple real ale and the wine is good too. Room small and compact but adequate for our stay.

The mattress was very soft which just caused my wife and I to roll into the middle (funny at first) but a poor nights sleep. The rest of the hotel is clean and the staff very polite. we ate in the restaurant... More

It's not often that we don't get everything right for our guests but it seems this time we have let ourselves down a little. Please accept our apologies and next time you visit we'll definitely be up to our usual standard as borne out by our consistent level of excellent reviews. More
