So we carried our bags along a tatty ground floor hall, with the walll paper hanging off in parts. We stayed in a club twin room. Quite small... More

Myself and my friend recently visited Bannatyne's for a catch-up and a bite to eat and we certainly weren't disappointed. The catch-up was lovely and the steak (we both had the same) was out of this world. It was cooked to perfection, the chips were amazing and the sauce was perfect - I'm still drooling about it now and simply... More

A little hard to find, but a central located hotel, in old English style, with a lot of atmosphere. Small, simple yet sufficient rooms (for 1-2 persons), a nice bar and good breakfast restaurant. So if you are looking for a all-you-need without any hassle, this is a good choice.
