The room was very clean and comfortable, although the single bed was true single size so not a lot of room to spread out, having said that I was offered an upgrade to a double for £10 a night, with hindsight I wish I had taken...

Stayed recently for a weekend and thoroughly enjoyed The View Hotel. All staff extremely friendly and helpful. Executive room well worth the add-on cost. No real negatives to report, but due the popularity of The View, get to breakfast early as a queue can form. Cooked breakfast area requires a review of its location and the bain-marie's need to be...

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend at the view Hotel. We found the staff pleasant and helpful. The room very clean and fresh and the breakfast was first class. The only way to improve this lovely hotel is to upgrade to a spar hotel which is something that will definitely bring me back time and time again. We... More
