We booked in for two nights in April 2015 after buying a groupon. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was very old fashioned an desperately in need of repair and a good clean of their carpets. The bed was very uncomfortable and I had to ask for an additional duvet just to pad it out a little. The... More

This hotel is very shabby inside and outside. However on the positive side, the staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. It's location is in the centre of the town with some nice shops, cafes and restaurants.

We booked in for two nights in April. On arrival I could see the signs outside were missing and the paint needed refreshing. Checking in was quickly dealt with and room was found easily. The room was of a decent size but on two levels, with the bathroom down steps. View from the room was rooftops and car park. The... More

We booked this hotel through itison and after reading some reviews I was a bit reserved. But we had a great stay. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The meal we had was lovely too. We spent the night in the bar which was very reasonably priced. Yes, it could do with a little updating and a fresh coat of... More

Arrived to this hotel to be greeted by the front and side having a missing sign, the car park was through archway where you park your car under a unsteady looking shed structure. We arrived into a dark, dingey and musty reception area. We were greeted at reception and show to our room, room 17, when we arrived the mattress... More

We have stayed here several times and the service and food have always been excellent. Accommodation good for the price. Staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed one night on a Groupon deal, dinner bed and breakfast. There is obviously quite a lot of work going on to bring the hotel up to date, but this was reflected in the price we paid so was not really an issue. We had room 33 at the back overlooking a disused beer garden and was very quiet. The... More

Had a 2 night stay with Groupon over Valentine,s weekend and we weren't, disappointed. The original building was an old coach house with stables dating back to the 1700s and over the years has been extended. It is in the process of being overhauled but there are still touches of the "old days" which makes it modern but very quaint.... More
