I can only repeat the excellent endorsements from other reviews. Perfect location, excellent rooms with comfy beds, together with a friendly, helpful and professional staff. Thank you Kelly and Sandra. First class breakfasts, hot or cold. Don't miss the full English. Overall, a first class stay. We would defiantly choose to stay again.

Visiting friends in the area this hotel fitted the bill exactly. Very comfortable room, with lovely bed and comfy sofa. Well lit throughout the hotel. Welcoming staff, relaxed breakfast with good selection. Quiet location in town centre so good night's sleep enjoyed.

Just stayed for 2 nights at the end of an 8 night holiday 'up north'. Of the 4 properties we stayed in this was the best by far. A great room as it was large, well maintained and quiet. Helpful staff and an excellent, hot and tasty breakfast. Plus free parking. What more could you ask for.

Have stayed here quite a few times over the last ten years. It is close to family when we are visiting so it works out quite well. The rooms are nice and clean. We usually opt for a larger room on the second floor that provides for a little more room for our family. Breakfast is always quite nice and... More
