Just returned from a 1 night stay and enjoyed our trip. We were greeted with a warm welcome, check in was easy and quick. Our room on the 2nd floor overlooked the canal and it was surprisingly quiet considering that we were looking out over the main road and the coach/bus drop off area. The staff were all cheerful and... More

Very quaint hotel with no straight lines, honestly it feels as if you are in a Harry Potter set! This hotel is a must if you're a Dad's Army fan, there are photos everywhere & most of the rooms are named after the characters. The breakfast room overlooks the Captain Mainwairing statue. We found the hotel to have very lovely,... More

For what claimed to be 3 stars and a premium price this hotel failed to deliver on everything. The rooms were not very clean so not a good start but not the end of the world. What wasn't tolerable was the noise from the floating disco moored outside of our room - this went onto until past 3am and with... More

On the positive, good price. On the neg, needs a bit of attention. Waited over an hour for bar food and the breakfast was like faulty towers, with cups thrown on the table etc. To be fair they gave us a refund for the bar food and the breakfast was tasty.
