The Link advertises itself as a "budget 3 star" hotel but that rather undersells it. I was there for a wedding and so was slightly trepidatious but this turned out to be unfounded. The food was excellent and the room was distinctly "business class". I often don't sleep well in hotels but this bed was lovely so I had no... More

The best thing about this place is the wifi, free and fast. The mattresses are either worn out or just not up to the job. The prime function of a hotel is somewhere for travellers to sleep so you would expect to get a decent bed. This place has mattresses so bad you have to get out of bed to... More

We stayed at The Link Hotel the last weekend in June 2014 as we were going to a Driving Experience which was less than 15 minutes away. Friendly staff. The rooms were excellent, huge comfy bed, tea and coffee making facilities and flat screen tele on the wall. Would definately recommend this hotel and would come back again.
