We have done a few hotels in our time and we look for comfortable bed, good shower, good breakfast and friendly staff. We nearly had all, the only pieces of feedback I would give are these; be friendly! We came in from a night at a restaurant having already checked in. We were not muggers and robbers (in fact far...

This hotel is independently owned and has a "boutique" feel. The breakfast room is light and airy and linen napkins were provided. The original wooden shutters have been retained in this room though the decor throughout is modern. The hotel info book in the room is slightly quirky, which I liked, but it is still informative. The staff were excellent... More

Stayed here for business recently. Pleasant and nicely furnished and equipped rooms, with a good bed and an excellent shower (quite a feat for this hard water area). Friendly service and prices good value, well located for the town centre and station, if you are happy to walk. If parking be careful not to miss the entrance off North Hill... More

This hotel is conveniently located. Room was spotless. We had a room in the back which was very quiet. The staff are extremely friendly. Breakfast was excellent. I'm told it's the best meal in town. The only negative was the shower; but then who chooses a room based on a shower? It's an old building and you can't expect too... More

A BIG thank you to all staff for making my family and I feel very welcome. We stayed for two nights as a wedding party where my sister was getting married at the town hall. Jack, you couldn't have done anymore for us. From organising taxi's, chilling champagne that we had brought ourselves to making sure that we had a... More

The staff were very helpful and overall we had a lovely stay. Really small room which was dusty. Didn't help to find a loose biscuit on the floor. Breakfast was nice but if they could bring the sauces before your Cooked breakfast it'd stop your breakfast getting cold waiting for it. I did ask before my food came on the... More

We stayed in this hotel whilst attending a Peterborough United away game 4 years ago when the hotel had just opened, we enjoyed it very much? We repeated this again this weekend, the hotel has expanded with a nice glazed courtyard and function room whilst a new wing is under construction. The owners and staff are superb nothing is to...
