Nice building & very central location. All the staff where friendly and helpful. Car park wasn't to easy to find. The broken barrier at the car park entrance and signs of neglect there where not very reassuring. The bedroom was a little bit on the small size but nicely decorated and clean. The bathroom was so small you couldn't swing... More

Ate lunch here a few months ago and wasn't impressed, Id been before and it wasn't great but decided to try it again. Decide on a nice pork dish from the menu and ask for mash potato with it only to be told that they only do champ. I don't like champ so the waitress said she would ask chef... More

I did not like this hotel for several reason: - fitted carpet everywhere (the room had a bed smell) - not enough sun light in the room (widow very small) - terrible mattress, we can feel the hard springs pressing on the back - no water pressure in the shower - breakfast not for people that doesn't like salted breakfast...

Our family had booked 4 rooms for a 3 night stay due to a family wedding nearby. We found staff most helpful and pleasant, with excellent service in both bar and restaurant where we ate on two occasions along with breakfast on 3 mornings. Food was very good with an extensive menu. Breakfast varied between individual orders for cooked items,... More

Nice hotel, comfortable room and very friendly staff, very low water pressure so i ended up running a bath instead as the shower was not great, no drama though. Nice sized bed and the room was very quiet. I had the cooked breakfast which was very good, nice sausages in particular, the breads were also very good. Cannot comment on... More

Staff were great, so helpful and welcoming at all times, afternoon tea also a bonus! Showers in the rooms are absolutely appalling, no pressure in either of our rooms (207 & 211). We resulted in washing our hair (in preparation for a wedding) over the sink. Room was of good size and very clean though.

I had been here once before at a wedding and really liked the big staircase as you came in the front door; made the hotel feel really grand. However someone has refurbished since then and this has been removed to be replaced with a bar. The main... More

This was well-located for my business and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. Water pressure was too low with a poor shower and non-flush loo. Breakfast was disappointing with left over fruit, every thing else from a packet or mass produced. Despite a large menu, supper was not very good and everything smothered in processed sauces of some kind. Staff... More

Breakfast was a bit disappointing due to a lack of staff I would say - hotel was very busy on sunday morning yet there was only 2 members of staff on duty to attend to tables with tea/coffee and toast etc. The brown sauce...
