First this not a typical hotel - more a very lively wine bar/ restaurant with bedrooms. It is very conveniently situated for the car park and other bars and restaurants but Market Square is difficult to find if you have luggage to unload - drive up Cross and Pillory Lane to the Square. Our room was very pleasant with quirky... More

Overall wasn't that impressed. Nicely decorated, but a couple of fundamental flaws which could be easily remedied to make the stay infinitely better. 1) the sheets were so incredibly thin that you could see the far-from-new mattress through. Having a mattress protector would have removed the thought that you were basically sleeping directly on top of a mattress upon which... More

Thank you for your review, I can only apologise that your expectations were not met when you stayed with us. All our beds should have mattress protectors and I have spoken to our House Keeper about why your bed did not, this is unacceptable and this has been fed back to the relevant members of staff. With regards the macerator... More

I have stayed in this hotel quite a few times over recent months, as I commute a fair distance to work. By evening it is a lively friendly shabby-chic set of bars with great decor and themed areas. Little notes like "free hot drink for all customers between 11:30 and 12:30 just because we care about our customers!" adds a... More

I hadn`t had any lunch, and was starving, one of the girls kindly offered me some of her cheesey garlic bread! Boy! It was yummy! (Sorry girls, I can`t remember... More
