We stayed here with another couple for just the one night. The receptionist was fantastic, she made us feel so welcome. The bedrooms are fine...we were overlooking the main street (so was the loo; but OK when you pulled down the blind!) We ate in the hotel...steaks were OK but the burgers were disappointing...they need to get better buns &... More

Not great, food not the best, room clean, staff very nice except for the night porter who was rude & should not be dealing with the public. The noise from the road with people in the fast food across the road & the fight going on outside was very loud. Sorry would not recommend.

I stayed here a couple of times in the past, and it is always consistent. The bar food was really good and the breakfast was excellent. The room was basic but clean. Only issue I had was poor WiFi reception in the room. The signal was so low that I couldn't connect. In fairness, the receptionist offered me the use... More

The staff were lovely & friendly. The room was quite small but was clean. The window was open & I had to stand on the bed & balance to close it. The bedside lamp couldn't be plugged in as there was no electrical sockets within reach. The hotel is quite dated. It's a long time sinceI had to open a... More
