Whilst travelling on business, I found to my horror that the usual 'chain' hotel I use in the area was fully booked. A search of the web turned up the Tower Hotel which seemed to have availability and looked ok.
A phone call to the Hotel put me in touch with Robert, a nice chap, the manager I believe, who quickly convinced me this was a fantastic place to stay, with an on site restaurant and bar facility.... taking him at his word, I booked.
The Hotel was easy to find, had ample parking and I was greeted by a friendly "receptionist / bar tender / restaurant manager person' - I am not sure if this young lady receives all three salaries for this multi skilled role, but she certainly deserves it - she was very efficient.
I was shown up to a modern, tastefully decorated bedroom which was exceptionally clean with an excellent bathroom and a great shower.
After ditching my bags, I found an excellent cask ale at the bar which was very reasonably priced. My food order was taken in the bar and I was invited through to the restaurant when the food was ready to be served. The meal was excellent - but unfortunately the portion sizes were large and I needed an additional couple of pints to aid digestion (the beer was good!).
An excellent nights sleep followed in a comfy bed and a piping hot shower set my up nicely for the the included continental breakfast. A full cooked breakfast was available for a very reasonable £6.95, but I decided to go for a equally good bacon sandwich.
The bill I received in the morning confirmed I had received excellent value for money and I left a very happy customer.
This is a great place to stay, very friendly, great food, great beer - I will definitely use this hotel as my number 1 choice next time I am in the area.
Well done to Robert and his team - they are certainly doing a lot right!
