After a lengthy and tedious journey from Somerset it was great to receive a first class welcome from the staff. Our room was well equipped with features including a cafetiere and high quality toiletries. The evening meal in the bar was very enjoyable and the choice of real ales was exceptional - breakfast was also fine and served to a... More

This was our second stay here and we were not disappointed. We arrived early and left the car in the nearby secure carpark but staff stored our luggage until our room was ready and even put it up into our room for us. They were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was large, airy and clean.... More

This was a whistle-stop visit with friends: we were really impressed by the friendliness of the staff - Amy and Sarah in particular. The room we had was spacious and well set out. Obviously, a great central position for anyone doing the real-ale tour of the city. Oh, and breakfast was great!

This hotel is full of character and the waitress who greeted us in the evening was a character herself. She was also there at breakfast time! Our room was a bit small and very warm. However we missed the fact there was a fan in the room! Be warned that dinner finishes, in my opinion, rather early! We missed it... More

Stopped off on way back from The Open at Troon. Nice clean room and bathroom but very warm. Thankfully they supplied a fan and we'd packed ear plugs. Above a great bar in a great location. Really good breakfast. Would deffo go back if in the area.

Location could not be better, central to the town and all the recommend thing to visit. Good size room, comfortable beds and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed for 5 nights and we ate mostly in the hotel as the food was so good and well presented.

Helpful, friendly and professional, the team at the hotel/ bar were a breath of fresh air after a stressful 6.5hr journey to Lancaster. A special mention must go to the worlds most helpful chef who left the hotel to give us directions!! Our original reservations about the possible noise due to staying above a bar were totally unwarranted too. The... More
