Great live entertainment every weekend with free entry and a wide selection of beers including several well kept real ales. Staff are really warm and friendly and the food is very good, I can't fault the breakfast. Rooms are clean and tidy and very reasonably priced.

Very easy to get a taxi to and from, short walk to anywhere in the town centre. Rooms are good value, drinks are cheap, meals were great and staff were friendly, loads of live local music every week. What else could you ask for!
