Don't be put off by first appearances. The hotel is a mishmash of numerous buildings, with the main reception and bar housed in the oldest part of the building. The reception staff are very friendly and welcoming. My rooms was clearly recently refurbished, with plenty of space, modern bathroom and nice and warm. We ate in the bar and the... More

The low ceilings, exposed beams, and tilting floor might not be everyone’s idea of great hotel ambiance, but we loved it. (For those not charmed by such historic surroundings, there is a new wing with more contemporary rooms available.) We stayed... More

A quirky half timbered hotel, a short walk from the main town centre with lots of historic character, although most of the rooms are in modern extensions. Good beers in the bar and the evening meal of fish and chips was excellent. Unfortunately the room was slightly damp with an interesting odour and could have benefitted from a re- fresh.... More

despite the very old surroundings, this place is not pretentious. Excellent location and careful to consider its hotel guests whilst office Christmas parties were taking up a large part of the public areas. So service very good, facilities (I guess this is what keeps the price down) a little old-fashioned: The "executive" room was small with slightly cramped showerroom. The... More
