We stayed a night in a family room at the Commons Inn Hotel. The accommodation was great, but what makes an outstanding difference is the excellent service we received from the staff. In particular I woul like to thank Daniel in the restaurant for making us feel so welcome, being friendly and helpful, and making sure our dinner was enjoyable.... More

We were delighted with every aspect of the hotel, it's proximity to the city centre, the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff, the cleanliness of the hotel, the very tasty breakfast.The sun was shining and temps reached 30 degrees but being able to fully open our big window allowed us to sleep comfortably.Excellent value.Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed for 5 nights (two adults and two children)... the reception was very helpful and friendly, the bar staff were brilliant and was happy with the breakfast and dinner options. The only thing I wasn't happy with was the hand held shower and having two kids and sending them off for a shower meant the whole bathroom was going to... More

Two of us spent 2 nights here recently and found the place to be ok. The room was quite large with two double beds. The keycard mechanism was broke on the room door so we had to use proper key which wasn't a problem but it made for a few minutes delay in check in as the receptionist was looking... More

Spent a week here in May, 2016, and enjoyed the staff, food, bartenders...all were friendly and helpful for planning day trips around the area. They gave us an upgrade on our room to move us to the quieter side of the Inn. Every night in the pub there were special and impromptu events and it reminded me of being home... More
