We've stayed two nights, be-careful if you don't like noise and stay during a Friday or Saturday night, because there is a Pub underneath with live karaoke. Comfortable and spacious bedrooms, very clean and pleasant. Free parking spaces available, Wi-fi was not working and very good breakfast. Not the most amazing staff I've met but general ok.

The Ambrose is an old pub that's been converted. Apparently it used to be a kids drinking venue, so a bit rough. The area is just 10 mins walk from town. It feels a little rough. There are only 2 car parking spots, although you can leave your car on the road as long as you move it by 10am.... More

I went there with my family and we really enjoyed our stay. The only thing is that I was there with my grandparents and our room was at the third floor and it was a bit difficult for them to reach the room. Also, I couldn't reach the wifi from that room as well. For all the rest the hotel... More

Friendly enough staff. This hotel is in a reasonable location. It is basically a pub with 10 or so rooms upstairs. My room was quite basic, bed was ok although not the comfiest. Was a choice of a few evening meals, and a cooked breakfast. Would stay again if just 1-2 nights.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Live bands and karaoke so no need to go looking for entertainment. Friendly locals always willing to participate in conversation. Staff were extremely accommodating and very warm and friendly. A fantastic breakfast, will definitely be returning and recommend highly!
