This is the proverbial Tardis. Small street frontage but the hotel extends well into the rear. Good car-parking facilities. Large comfortable rooms. Attended a wedding and booked the hotel to stay the night. Staff were very courteous and the booking in process was very smooth. We were very impressed with the organisation of the wedding (Over 200 guests) and how... More

Stayed a couple of nights this weekend at this hotel for a wedding at another. We were in the original part of the hotel in the front building. Rooms were comfortable and well appointed though showing some signs of wear, eg loose or damaged drawer handles. This can be easily overlooked though as the level of service was nothing short...

i got married 07/08/2014 and had my reception at the Villa Rose. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough. From the day we booked our wedding it has been nothing but a pleasure to work with Rhonda/Nicole and the rest of the team. Nothing was a problem and they were always just a phone call or an email away... More
