A good rate for a double room and nice breakfast. Shower is very good, but bed was not that comfy (more lumpy) and the room was far too cold at night. Car parking for 3/4 cars is around the rear, if you can find the way in. The hotel is a really an inn and the bar is essentially the... More

Clean but basic and out-dated rooms. No wi fi in rooms and no where to sit quietly in the bar area. Breakfast is ok but very greasy. For 65 pound a night I have stayed in much nicer places. Needs a refurb and Wii fi available in rooms.

This hotel has very friendly staff and we were made very welcome. The room was comfortable and a great price for the night. We had dinner at the Pizza Express and then on route back to the Hotel we visited a few other bars, the nightlife there was great, people were very pleasant and we felt very comfortable. Breakfast was... More

We arrived on Friday afternoon and despite also being busy with the bar was over to us really quickly to check us in. The bar in the evening was good fun with everybody getting to know each other. Breakfast in the morning was also very good.

The price was so cheap we weren't expecting much but we were very pleasantly surprised. Huge comfy bed, quiet, warm room, delicious breakfast and very friendly staff. Downstairs there is a bar which I think could get a bit noisy, we just joined in with the locals!

Our room was nice, freshly decorated and good value for money. However, breakfast on the Sunday morning was a joke. When we arrived in the breakfast room at 9ish, there were 8 or 10 builders in there, all wanting their cooked breakfasts. So we just had toast and cereal. There was only one member of staff on duty, no-one dealing... More

We booked over the internet. They fail to let you know you are staying in rooms over a pub. Room and bathroom were dated but clean. On the good side: great location, walking distance to shopping, restaurants, bus, train ; breakfast was excellent and Wfii available in public areas. On the bad side: Noisy during weekend late nights (Friday and... More
