We arrived before 3 and the room was not ready, but check in sorted the receptionist doubled as bar person and served up drinks and later as IT person as she helped us connect the free wi fi. Our standard room was adequate and had a good view from the window but we soon realised we needed to keep the... More

We have just spent a very relaxing week-end at the Prince of Wales. Very homely and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and cheerful. Even though the hotel is on a main road it did not cause any problems. Ian Lockier the musician on Saturday evening was superb.

We have stayed at the Prince of Wales for New Year for the past 4 years and it is great. Decided to book for bank holiday weekend - 22nd to 25th May and we were not disappointed. Although it was very different from New Year, the service was just as fantastic, the staff (all the same from our last visit)... More

The welcome was wonderful as usual. Room always very clean and comfortable. Food excellent value for money. Entertainment also very good, especially Ian Lockyer who is exceptional. We have stayed numerous times and will continue to do so for many more years. We just love this hotel and cannot even find a small criticism.
