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

I have stayed here a couple of times and loved every stay, great staff, warm welcome, great food, great rooms and a lovely clean environment. The breakfasts were very filling and a good variety, evening meals were fab. Hope to see you all again soon.

I stayed here whilst on a course at the nearby college. Its easy to find but as stated elsewhere the car park is round the back which means you have to go around the one way system to find it - its not difficult really and the reception gives good directions (or you could look on Google Maps). The car... More
