We were visiting a good friend. We needed a central place with a good car park to accommodate a classic car. This hotel must have been refurbished recently but it's deco heritage has been preserved. Beautiful reception area and public rooms. The bedroom was comfortable and stylish. The staff were helpful and seemed to really want you to have a... More

A very comfortable room , excellent breakfast, friendly staff, and free wifi which works. That all makes for a pretty good combination. The ambience felt a little dated, but as this matched the classic decor it added to the charm

I have to say this is one of my favourite hotels. The food is very good quality and great value. I love the 1940's style decor throughout the hotel. The rooms are very presentable and spacious.
