Got a club room for £44 for the night. Bargain. Hotel is a little dated and could do with refurb but it is still nice. Clearly I had a cheap room and is at the back and beyond of the hotel but it was £44 so wasn't complaining. Used the spa for £4 following morning. Don't know if I was... More

Staff in restaurant rude, buffet reasonably priced although food pretty basic and bland. You have to pay for everything in advance. Room basic but for one night stay would have been OK, apart from the noise at 2am from drunken guests shouting and screaming in corridor when all I wanted was a good nights sleep. Won't be using this hotel... More

Wow, there are a lot of people complaining unjustly about this property. Stayed here just prior to it being taken over by Britannia (it was a De Vere then) and not a great deal has changed. Externally it is an impressive looking historic building which is well maintained. Internally there are bits and bobs which require a touch up but... More

Booked double suite as a real treat. £200. So disappointed. Nothing like the photo on their website. In fact duty manager told us that room didn't even exist!! Stains on bedding, scratched and dented furniture, toilet didn't flush properly, raw plugs sticking in wallpaper, shockingly bad tea/coffee facilities, didn't even bother to put a third cup in the room! Please... More

I remember this hotel from years ago when it was considered one of the smartest in the town.Visiting this year was a real shock.The entrance hall is a mass of large posters advertising cheap meal deals and the lounge had several worn chairs. Drinks ordered at the bar have to be paid for before they will bring them to your... More

Having spent a lovely relaxing day in the spa as a birthday treat from my best friend, the day was ruined by a truly shocking experience in the bar following afternoon tea. The worst customer service I have EVER experienced. We went up to the bar to settle our bill and the bill was slightly more than we were expecting... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Groupon offer for one night in September. Reading some of the trip adviser reports, we were a bit concerned what we might find but I am happy to say we were pleasantly surprised bearing in mind we only paid £79. The hotel is very central and has its own car park at... More

This hotel needed refurbishment about 10 years ago. That would be ok if the staff were helpful, if it were clean and if the plumbing worked. The double bed wasn't even an attempt at one, two singles used together with single duvets.
