Central location which could not be much better. Traditional British hotel, terrific friendly staff and owners. Enjoyable, spacious well stocked bar. Breakfast was excellent. Great value for money overall.

Extremely good value for money. The hotel was clean. The full english breakfast was very welcome. The staff were very friendly, jolly and very helpful. The location was ideal, especially if you want to visit the tunnels or the theatre but parking was a bit tricky. The hotel is a little tired on the interior but perfectly adequate.

Sorry we didn't get to see Yvette this time but will look forward to seeing her in October when we are back for our rock and roll... More

What a great time we all had. The food was good also brilliant fun. I have told all my friends what a good holiday we had and would recommend the hotel for its warmth and hospitality. Nothing was too much for the staff. Marie

I am secretary of the above group and have been booking holidays and short breaks for many years - I was a travel agent by profession s0 do feel that I have had experience from many angles. The hotel is not luxury by any means (nor does it pretend to be) but for a group such as ours it was... More
