Don't stay here. Save yourself the hassle of dealing with a Manager who truly doesn't give a damn. Go down the road to Fulton Chop House who have beautiful accommodation and lovely staff. Don't use Booking.com to secure your booking either. You can only cancel two days before you arrive which is ridiculous when offered inadequate shabby bathrooms with no... More

In an area dominated by Greene King, how pleasant to find somewhere warm and comfortable serving alternative local beers. I had 'Arise', sadly I did not note the name of the brewer. The food looked good but we had already eaten a huge breakfast at Rayne Booking Hall (see separate review) but anyway a lovely bar with good service to... More

First of all I cannot believe anyone has a bad word to say about this lovely hotel. I know each to their own and all that. From the minute you arrive to check in the staff are wonderful, then up to the quaint, very well presented, modern, homely room and you meet the housekeeping staff and the service just gets... More
