“Cosy warm and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting my daughter at Brunel University, which is just down the road. The hotel appears to be quite old, and it is quite atmospheric. My room was comfortable and warm and had an in-room coffee making set up that was well equipped and even included some Shrewsbury biscuits, which I hadn't had for years. The full breakfast was superb - sausage, black pudding, tomato, bacon, eggs, beans, mushrooms - about the best I've had. In the evenings I had the bangers and mash one night, which was decent but not special, and the fish and chips on the other night, which was very good - there were two very large pieces of fish that tasted excellent and some interesting home made tartar sauce.

The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The layout of the hotel is rather labyrinthine, but it would be hard to get lost :-) I took away a point on the room rating as on the second night the loo wouldn't stop trickling after being flushed!

We stayed Saturday night in December. The room was excellent. The breakfast was also excellent. Well presented, with a good choice and the dining room very comfortable. We had a lunch with four other couples and that was 5 Star. Very well set table, excellent staff, the food was spot on. Excellent. No complaints at all.

I stayed at the hotel with my family during a business trip.
Everything worked very well - The rooms where big and the service very good.
The only slightly negative thing was the breakfast buffet which was a little borring - everything else was just perfect.

This is a great hotel, close to Brunel Uni, serving excellent food.
A very "English" hotel, with its chintzy decor. I stayed in a twin room and a larger twin room. The larger room was not made for anyone taller than a gnome, but it had character. The staff were very he,Paul, when I complained about the fridge like conditions in the bathroom and brought a radiator straight away.
I can recommend this hotel highly to all parents visiting their offspring at Uni. The food taste great and isn't too expensive, so you can treat your son/daughter to a delicious meal.
I would stay here again any time.

Room Tip: Don't ask for room 307, unless you are very small!

Stayed here for a birthday treat with family. My room was in the original building and has a lovely fireplace and a comfy bed. I loved the room and wished i could stay for longer. I would of had a great view of the church and green but unfortunately a coach parked right outside my window so the room ended up quite dark during the day and no view at all which was a great disappointment but not the hotels fault. Staff were friendly and I can't wait to stay there again
