3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was on the edge of the car park which left a bit to be desired The staff were great, the food OK, reasonable choice of beer. Good location as close to town centre and many resturants and bars

Searched the Internet and found this hidden gem. Cannot recommend this place enough. Location is brilliant, step outside and you literally are 'there'. We stayed in one of the 3 rooms at the back, like converted out-buildings...lovely. General manager and his staff were all fantastic and we can't wait to go back.

Had a lovely stayover here with the town right on the doorstep. Very friendly, accommodating staff. Bar snack and breakfast good, although we didn't dine here this time we will next time we stay here. Room comfy and lovely bathroom. Very relaxed atmosphere and late check out.

My Wife and I stayed here on 30th & 31st July 2016. Our relatives also stayed in the room next door. This place is slap bang in the middle of the Beautiful Town. Just a 5 minute walk to the Train Station, and a 2 minute walk to the Bus station. The town square is also 3 minutes walk away.... More

This is by no means a 5 stars hotel, but what it lacks in modern gadgets it certainly makes up for with the friendly staff and the building character. Free wifi, clean rooms, great location near the station and good food, all in all, good value for money.

Think we've found a new go to place in BSE away from the crowds at Edmundo's! Went to The Bushel on a hot Saturday lunchtime and the place was almost empty which is usually a bad sign. But fear not! The staff were very welcoming and accommodated my wife's dietary requirements. They have a good selection of beers and lagers... More

We stopped here for a drink on Monday 18th of July, then the hottest day of the year. It was almost empty on a Monday afternoon; perhaps not surprising. Nonetheless it was very comfortable with plenty of space to sit. While we were there we decided to try the whitebait with chilli mayonnaise. Interesting but we would have preferred plain... More
