Staff serving dinner were very unfriendly and blunt when serving. Window very drafty in room leaving room cold over night. Ordered sandwiches for next day's work and given them at night before bed, no where to refrigerate sandwiches forcing us to leave sandwiches in the coldest place being on the window cill by the drafty window!

this hotel is on the Main Street in this small town. The staff are very friendly. There is lots of parking, but the lot is a thru fare for a constant stream of walkers. The rooms are clean, but the furniture is a bit shabby. The food in the pub is very good. The wifi is open and slow probably... More

Good value for your money & great breakfast. The staff are very nice and helpful. Location is in the centre of the town which is great. The rooms need updating and the shower needs to be looked at as it just run cold and not much pressure. But for some reason the hot water and pressure was great in the... More

What it is is a clean, no frills hotel with friendly, professional staff which serves an excellent breakfast. There were a few niggles eg twin beds of different heights, a tiny TV with only... More
