Have stayed here on a few occasions and have always found the place to be very friendly with clean comfortable rooms. The restaurant has a limited menu but good food. Its located centrally so there is quite a good choiceb of restaurants nearby. Breakfast is always good too.

8 of us stayed at the weekend as part of an overnight spa break, the price was reasonable so wasn't sure what to expect. The spa and treatments were excellent, health club a little small but had everything you'd need really. We loved the heated seats in the relaxation room! We had afternoon tea included in our deal which was... More

Great spa weekend away with the girls. Had a great deal for a spa treatment, afternoon tea, overnight stay, dinner and breakfast. Rooms were okay, you have to drive 5/10 mins from the spa to the hotel. If driving the hotel is tricky to get to as you cant get in at the front. Would definitely would come back if... More

Good hotel - lovely old building (with modern fire detection system) Comfortable if cramped double room was not a problem but a result of converting this old building Comfortable and huge twin room is the upside of this! Recommend this place and will return NB -Spa is across town but a lovely facility

Lovely old building in a great spot with a lovely garden. Parking not possible in sure as car park was full. Rooms a bit worn and old fashioned but were spotlessly clean. Communal areas were good but noticed light bulbs out and cobwebs. Very noisy in the small bar as there was a disco going on next door. Check in... More

Two night stay booked through a popular APP. Great value. Hotel is really pleasant, close to the town centre. Breakfast is good and reasonably priced. My room was a little dated, but perfectly serviceable. The bath panel was loose and stuck on with mastic, and the water made a racket when turned on, but heh, it's an old building! Free... More

This hotel does need a make over. Patched wallpaper in a bedroom is unacceptable. Beds were uncomfortable needed new mattress. Slightly larger tv would be appropriate although the room was tiny. Likewise the bar also needs refurbishing and a portion of ceiling is about to come down near the window looks unsightly. Maybe the cocktail menu could be extended. Unfortunately... More
