Tired looking building on outside but very modern, comfortable decor inside. Staff very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Lovely big room and bathroom. Very comfy bed and pillows.

I hadn't realized this was part of a chain of 'Brains' hotels when I booked and was a little disappointed that it was a modern and somewhat characterless place rather than a traditional inn. My first observation was that the parking was very limited and made more so by some selfish and/or inept parkers, with some cars taking up one... More

Thank you for the review of our premises. As stated in the hotel description is does say we are just outside of the town centre which indicates we are on a main road. It does not seem to bother most guests as to the majority of guests traffic is a way of life but I would like to assure guests... More

We ate in the hotel with our friends that evening and the meal was very nice. The breakfast the next morning was first class.... More
