We invaded The Crescent for a 65th birthday party. Nothing was too much trouble. They even organized the music for the dancing. Very reasonable pricing too. Close to the High Street with shops, cinema, restaurants and clubs.

There was plenty of fresh fruit for breakfast but the cooked breakfast was disappointing, the sausage was dull, clearly a 'value' variety, scrambled egg was microwaved, dry and without seasoning and the only coffee available was instant! A coffee... More

Came here with my 2 girls and husband for a holiday. What a gorgeous place! Run by the loveliest and friendliest family. The room was very very clean as was the hotel. The breakfast every morning was delicious. I cannot compliment it enough. Best holiday we had in a while. Will definitely go back. Simply fab!
