Location - great, just a 10 minute walk to the catherdral Room - they only have single or twin rooms which was a bit annoying for us as a couple. However it was a good price for 2 nights in the easter holidays and comfortable. Good night sleep. The bathroom could do with a bit of an update. Parking- there...

Centrally located and with on-site parking. Clean/warm/quiet room with shower - breakfast included in price! Stayed 2 nights 7/8th in Feb. 2017 in twin (5) room. Good all round budget value. Note: has large, but friendly, dog on premises.

I went as an over night stop over as I was on a company Christmas event. After lots of complications booking, as last minute.com thought they had spare room and they hadn't, I eventually got a room booked. The room was cold and dirty. They said the breakfast was at 8.30, I arrived at 8.40 and all they said was...

Went in to get a drink and play pool with three friends on a Sunday evening. Instantly rudely ID'd before even ordering a drink and told "you can't be here after nine" before even checking the ID (we were ages 20-22). Felt very unwelcome and were questioned how many games we would play before starting. Before even having been playing...

Why didn't we stay here last year? I knew I would be late arriving so called ahead and was reassured it was no problem. Welcomed by a lovely lady who gave me my room key and assured me I didn't need to rush to get back for a pint. The pint may have been Strongbow but it was well kept....

I stay here every year for the August Bank Holiday weekend. I always get a warm welcome from Mark the landlord. The pub is a traditional one serving a wide selection of GK beers and lagers. Pool table and dartboard are a great bonus. The rooms are clean, basic and practical. As I am visiting for cricket tour I am...

The Black Boy Inn is what I would call a typical local pub, a little outside of the centre on a quieter road (which was barely audible most of the time and secondary glazing cut the noise out any other time). There was noise from the bar itself until 23:30 / 00:00 most nights but with it being a pub...
