Perfect for working away. A reasonably busy bar and pleasant staff. No TV in the bar area was a bit annoying as I like to watch TV when away alone . Food looked good but I prefer to explore local restaurants . If your not eating not too many places to sit and just chill.

The bed was comfortable, and the room quiet at night. The bathroom was clean and with modern fittings, with a large... More

I stayed at this hotel with my two teenage sons. On booking direct ( I got better price ) I was told there would be noise disturbance until 12. This apparently is told to all weekend guests. I didn't mind and booked. Both rooms were large and clean with amazing power shower. The town itself is beautiful with lovely riverside... More

A no fuss town centre hotel that provides the weary traveller with a bed and food. Friendly and helpful staff. Good menu and being town centre evening parking outside front door. Work mate's room didn't have a bath which after a long day on our feet would have been nice. Mine did. Bed was hard. Only downside was my room... More

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. Nice large room, very clean. Good bar area with pleasant staff. When we returned from going out in the evening the bar was packed with well behaved youngsters (Saturday night) Noisy and busy but we grabbed a drink and joined in. We had a good time. Breakfast was good with excellent... More
