Stop over for us annually on return form holiday. This hotel is less business like than many Premier Inns as has a more homely feel in the room as has proper wardrobes. Staff were extremely helpful and there is a definite family run feel about the place. We will be there again next year, as we were last year. Good... More

Love staying at this Premier Inn, Staff can never do enough for you, comfort is always top notch and food is always fantastic, 10 out of 10 yet again, almost a shame to leave, but i will be back for more!

Tired , dated room with poor lighting. Unable to charge smart phone due to positioning of power points. The shower screen didn't close properly and the water was cold. We would have had breakfast but were unaware of what time it was served. I would have spoken to a member of staff but there weren't any around......very disappointed on this... More

The staff at this hotel and in the pub next door are all 100% friendly and helpful in a down to earth way that comes across as being genuine. The hotel rooms are nice. There is the usual maintenance problems like the shower head not being on right so all the water runs down the hose and the soap dispenser... More

Member of staff managed to hit my parked, unoccupied car in the car park and was extremely rude when asked for her details. Several other staff with her were also very rude and to top it all I managed to get threatened by a local who decided to involve himself. Safe to say I would not recommend the place!

To be fair the room was ok, althought the bed and the furniture in a small room was a tight fit as was the shower, barely room to turn around.However the stairways and the dining area were dark and the carpet old and in need of a clean or rather replacing. This is not a modern Premier inn. If you... More

Needed somewhere to stay on the way back due to traffic being mad. Used the mobile app to contact bookings, got the room and was in. Unfortunately it wasn't a super £29 deal but was OK. Room as expected of a Premier Inn. Well kept and pretty clean. Stairwell was a bit smelly and dated though. Staff very helpful and... More

Booked this hotel as staying for the Grand Depart of the Tour de France. Having read the previous comments I was not looking forward to our stay. However, Staff were so friendly and immediately made us feel welcome. Yes rooms are not of the standard of the newer hotels we have stayed at previously, but as we only really used... More
