We stayed here for one night and loved the place. Accommodation was just around the corner from the pub and was cosy and comfortable. We had dinner and drinks in the pub which was really nice. But what stood out was how nice all the staff were, from the check in staff to everyone working in the pub - all...

Room was clean, but small. Reception staff very friendly. I wouldn't want to stay for more than a night or two,but was very good value for money. Biggest problem was noise from central heating, and also people on floor above and foghorn from the port, neither being the fault of the hotel itself. Great location for Gunwharf Quay. Parking permit...

Room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The only downside was that the room was pretty small, which made getting ready a bit tricky. I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend to a friend.

Positives: ease of booking, parking available on road, friendly receptionist, coffee facilities, nice shower, warm room, very clean, good value for money. Negatives: room six was SO NOISY! Please ask what room you'll be in before you book. The pump is so loud and every time somebody flushes the toilet it sounds like an earthquake. No one told me of...

I booked a night at this pub/hotel for one night for myself and my girlfriend. We needed a place to stay after a work christmas social and this place looked great.

Although only a single room, when described as "ensuite" I expect more than a mascerator toilet in a cupboard and a tiny shower in the bedroom. For £80 a night I would have also expected breakfast. Instead, I couldn't check in until 3pm unless I paid another £5 and I had to check out by 10am - or pay yet...
