Stayed for two nights. Used an offer which was bought for us by a friend. Everything was perfect with the room. I understand the hotel is old and in desperate need for a refurbishment but as the pleasant duty manager who went out of his way to talk to us explained a full refurbishment program is planned for next year....

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights and have totally enjoyed the stay. I was in room 245 directly above reception. The room has seen better days and I suspect the same can be said of any period building of this size. I have read some of the other reviews and feel that they have been quite harsh.... More

Although we booked a 'superior room' we found a room that had thread-bare upholstery on the chairs, a shower that would not run cool and was far too hot to wash under (a common fault I guess as other people were complaining at breakfast), a grease stained headboard, a bathroom without operational extract, a broken toilet roll holder and a...

Stayed two nights. Overall a good hotel, staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and spacious, had dinner on the first night which we both enjoyed. Breakfast on the first morning was a bit chaotic though there were a lot of people (1 coach party, 1 group of students and 1 football team) second morning was a lot better.

My pregnant Girlfriend and I stayed 1st & 2nd August 2014 and it was supposed to be a relaxing two days before travelling up to Scotland for the Edinburgh Fringe. We paid for and room upgrade and was given room 245, a large spacious room overlooking the... More

This hotel looks like its stuck in the 1970's the room I had was tired , stained, chipped, and not clean. Staff were the only redeeming feature, friendly, smiley and helpful with a sense of humour. Bathroom had mold growing on shower head , floor tiles were cracked and bathroom had no extractor,

The food was excellent, Breakfast was fresh and good quality products uswd..The only bad points were, the room was very hot so we didn't sleep well. The pool area could do with updating as looked shabby, and basic. But other than that I'd say it was... More
