I stay at the hotel regularly while working locally. I have always found all hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful. I request a quiet room which is always accommodated. My room has always been clean and comfortable. Breakfast is more than adequate with a good selection. Vegetarian and gluten free diets catered for. It has to be remembered... More

A rather depressing exterior belies a cosy interior. I stayed here for one night to attend a wedding reception at the hotel and found my single room clean, spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was too "white" and glaring and smelt of "medical" cleaner, but there was plenty of space and the shower worked efficiently. The highlight for me, however, was... More

Thank you for your recent review We feel that breakfast is a very important part of the day, and to charge extra for something that was once always included in the room rate of a hotel is definitely a NO in our book! More

Stayed here for one night. Nice hotel, rooms clean and spacious, free wifi a bonus, travelling with my husband who was on business didn't want to go far for an evening meal after a long drive so had a meal from the bar menu which was excellent. Breakfast was very good.

My partner never reads reviews before booking hotels, he leaves this to me!! So after reading the reviews was very optimistic as always. They seemed to be a mixed bag, but as always don't judge a book by its cover. On arrival, plenty of parking, this was good, as we were in my partners very large white van. Very run... More

Thank you for your recent review It seems that we met your expectation on all levels, and that is always good to read. The pine headboards are being replaced, but as an independent hotel that does take time. I look forward to welcoming you to the hotel again in the future. More

After years of driving and walking past, I finally had a reason to stay here. I've watch the King Charles change over the years and I think it has changed for the better but without losing the local charm that big hotel chains have. I was pleasantly surprised at how big and how many rooms it has, there was a... More

Tea and coffee, free wifi and freeview in rooms. Bar is fine but the food was absolutely delicious! Yet to have the breakfast... More

This hotel was booked at short notice. The price was very good, we had a family room which was really well set out with the third bed in a little rom that has a door, this was very good for privacy. On arrival we were checked in by really helpful, polite and friendly staff. The parking facilities were really good... More

Thank you for your recent review We have various family rooms here, and the majority of them have two separate rooms, which we believe offers exceptional value for money.
