I have now stayed here many times. it is a family-run hotel that offers good value, especially for single rooms and included breakfast. It is about 10 mins walk from the station and shops............................................

Stayed here for a business visit. It is on a busy main road just on the outskirts of the City Centre so very close to shops, pubs, restaurants etc. I was a bit concerned about traffic noise as my bedroom was at the front facing the road, but secondary glazing kept it pretty quite. The room I had was spacious... More

I turned up at Boswell House with a warm welcome. The room was really nice and what stood out was the cleanliness, it was really comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic would definitely recommend. There are places near by to eat as well so you don't have far to walk!

I'm a light sleeper but found the triple-glazed windows excluded traffic noise well. Everything else has been said: cheerful considerate hosts, convenient location, good food, big rooms, old-fashioned decor but with all necessities, even an effective trouser press.

Very large room with a double and 2 singles just for the 2 of us. Very clean, basic room, could... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Proprietors are very friendly and helpful. Had room 3 on the ground floor, facing the parking area. The room was very basic and sparse, but spacious. Very basic bed with older mattress; not much to look at, but I slept well. This hotel is not much to write home about, but does what it says... More
