Room very good, hotel full of character. Dinner was excellent. Excellent choice at breakfast. Staff polite and helpful. often stopped and asked if we were ok. Would go again, but would ask for ground floor room. Thank you

Stayed at this hotel on a deal and wasn't impressed with the hotel or breakfast, however I would recommend dinner in the restaurant. Reception staff were not friendly on arrival, and no smile! Room although had been refurbished the finish is poor. Couldn't even sit on toilet properly as not enough room and no tea in the room just coffee,... More

When we called in to book a table the girl on reception was more interested in doing things behind the bar than dealing with customers, keeping both us and another couple waiting. The meal itself took an age to arrive; they did however apologise for the delay. The food was fairly disappointing. The steak pie was well made, but was... More

The room was large with a huge bed, quirky furniture, and decent carpet. Bathroom was also very large and fitted to a good standard. The bed was so comfortable we... More
