I have stayed in this hotel to attend a job interview and it was a good experience. The hotel itself is average in every sense but the owner made every effort to welcome me there. This included posting my mobile phone, which I have forgotten in my room :) thanks!

As a first time visitor, I was very impressed by the friendly welcome and the pleasant decor of the hotel. The room was fairly basic, but very clean and comfortable, with welcome free Wifi. Good choice of cooked or continental breakfast to round it off.

We had a lovely overnight stay. Ate in the restaurant it was lovely food. The only draw back is the parking, Parking is in the NCP carpark, yes they had negotiated a deal , but we had to still pay £5. Breakfast was very good

Internet worked only one out of five nights, it took two days to get the burnt out bathroom light bulb changed, and no room for a chair between the desk and bed in my tiny double room, so I had to work on the bed. Heat difficult to control, only choices seemed to be off entirely or incessantly blasting hot... More

We stayed in room 25 which was very small, bathroom was larger. Location was perfect, close to town center with pubs and restaurants. Breakfast very nice and staff friendly. Only issue I had was when I asked for my laptop and iPad to be put somewhere safe and it was placed just behind desk within easy reach of anyone walking... More

The room was a reasonable size, very comfortable and well maintained. The shower was fab and the breakfast very good (nicely cooked, presented and not too much!). The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Parking is made very simple too in a town where parking is a premium. I would highly recommend it as a place to stay in... More
