We stayed for just one night at this charming establishment a few weeks ago and were mostly impressed. With it being a period property, there are some unique quirks that make it a wonderful place. However, this also causes issues if not maintained. Whilst the housekeeping team do a marvellous job keeping rooms clean, the same cannot be said for... More

Had a great evening meal here with my wife. Curry was brilliant and had authentic seasoning although I would class it as medium heat rather than mild. Steven gave fantastic and attentive service throughout.

Popped in for lunch and had the Caesar Salad. For £7.95 you'd expect more than lettuce, dressing parmesan, croutons and a few anchovies, right. That's a few anchovies more than a Caesar Salad kit from your local supermarket..! I expect to see a bit more effort to please and differentiate at that kind of price. Then a visit to the... More

Great location, lovely old building but needs a good decorating and a good clean in places. Reception area great. Rooms have bedding with strange marks on, ripped curtains, dirty carpets etc. Once some money has been spent on it it will be fab. Staff are great especially michelle who was very helpful.

Stayed here for two nights in July. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Room was clean and very comfortable. The hotel had off road private parking and we were able to park our motorbikes undercover. Lamin, the night porter, happily served us drinks well into the early hours. Nothing was too much trouble. This guy was fab, he really made... More

We only went in for a late lunch and didn't stay in the hotel, so can only comment on the rooms. Food was lovely though we both had the "gin and tonic fish and chips", beautifully cooked, huge portion and attentive service.
