We stayed here for a friends wedding last weekend and my wife and I were happy from start to finish. As any parent knows, if your children are happy, you are happy, so it was good to see that the hotel considers its younger guests as important as the adults! More of that later... Our friends wedding took place in... More

We had two rooms for an overnight stay. We arrived about 7:30, but the bar and restaurant had no guests which is always a bit worrying. We decided to go for a walk first. The entire town is heaving with pubs and restaurants - none of which had more than a few tables in use - so we put it... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for my 50th birthday and found it to be a nice hotel but a few minor niggles stopped it being perfect. The room we were put in( room 29 ) was a lovely big room and was very clean,however it was a very dark purple colour that made it seem a bit oppressive, it... More

My wife an I stayed here for two nights whilst attending our nephews wedding. We found the hotel to be comfortable, even though there didn't appear to be a level floor in the building.

My husband & I dined here on the evening of 4 October & were very pleased with our experience. We opted for the pre theatre menu which, at £22 per head for 3 courses, is fantastic. The food itself is a la carte portions and although at first worried it wouldn't fill us, it was ample. There is also a... More

We only stayed here for one night as our holiday came to an end, but were pleased with what we got offered.

We booked an all inclusive dinner bed & breakfast package staying in the attic flat, to celebrate our anniversary.
