I stayed there for a couple of nights recently and found it to be a perfectly good, traditional type of small town hotel. The room was nicely equipped, everything in the bathroom worked fine and the breakfast was delicious. Not expensive either.

When I rang down to reception the guy said it was the weather, but it was a balmy summer evening so that was rubbish. Still wasn't... More

I stayed on 18th/19th July 2014, along with 3 adult friends and 2 kids and we agree on the following-- The rooms, spotless. Staff out of this world, nothing to much bother, always on hand and with a smile. The food excellent, will stay longer next time just to go through the menu. The bar prices exactly the same as...

Took me bout 10 minutes to find it hidden away behind what presumably they think are fire doors but look like wardrobe doors. Net curtains and window sill were filthy, tv remote does not work. Worst tho was the noise. There was loud... More

Stayed for three days lately with partner and have no complaints. Good value for the price. Rom very clean, beds comfortable, shower fine, tea/coffee in rooms, TV could be a bit better I suppose. Had no wait to check in but I can see why that could happen as the staff do a lot of different jobs. A couple of... More
