I replied I was and she went away contented. After locating my companion who had travelled separately I discovered that Reception was a few leaflets and... More

The breakfast was cooked fresh but the second morning was half the size of the first morning. A pint of local ale appeared unfined although not described as such.... More

Small car park but nice to have Bit noisy in the evening owing to people outside of the nearby Wetherspoons pub, comfortable room, good en suite. Excellent breakfast, (one of the best we've ever had) freshly cooked, good ingredients and friendly staff. Would certainly visit again.

Arrived home today after a stay at this hotel. When we arrived at the hotel I wondered had we chosen to stay at the wrong hotel. The downstairs of the hotel didn't seem very nice and the hall carpet leading to the stairs going to rooms was filthy. I was surprised that ou room was a little small but clean.... More

We had a twin room for two nights -- the ensuite toilet did not flush properly and had a broken seat. After three complaints to reception, finally to the manager, a new seat was provided but the toilet flush was not repaired. Room was quite noisy due to a refrigeration unit outside the hotel. Good location opposite to the railway... More

Arrived with the family and noticed immediately the lady in front of us was complaining of the wrong room. The receptionist was completely making a meal of it but seemed to resolve it eventually. We checked in and carried the families cases to the room only to find he checked us into a double room. We went downstairs to get... More
