This hotel has recently been refurbished and now shows its decor including oak panalling in a much better way. Car parking is across the road, so it is not possible to unload luggage at the door. Reception friendly and helpful with advice and queries. The room although booked for what I thought was a very good price, was in fact... More

Nice old building that has been very nicely decorated and has nicely furnished rooms to a modern standard. Super bar / restaurant area with good choice of ales/ beers / food. Be aware that car park is on other side of road from hotel. Would guess hotel more suited to business guests as not a lot to do / see... More

This is a review regarding the exceptional service and goodwill shown by the staff and manager of this hotel. To cut a long story very short, I had booked a superior room at the hotel 24 hours before I was due to stay - this was because my mother had been very ill in a local hospital. Due to a... More

The hotel is clean, modern and full of character. Having not stayed here before I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the rooms and restaurant. The bedrooms are well equiped and spacious. The bathroom and power shower cubicle were superbly presented. Clearly the hotel has invested in quality fittings and this is clearly evident and very satisfying to see.... More

We couldn't afford to stay at the hotel where my friend's daughter was getting married it was about £145 a night and a bit beyond us. Went one step down and paid £75 a night for a room at the Duke which was very close by. It was fantastic. We had two days in luxury with a great big cast... More

I booked an Executive room for one night here for my husband and I whilst visiting a friend. On arrival we parked in the private car park which is not secure and next to the railway. We were informed that there was no cctv on there but that the railway and the nursing home next to it had cctv. We... More
