This hotel is quite old so some of the furniture and fittings are tired and even scruffy. However there are not many hotels in the area and it was comfortable and met my requirements on this trip. Breakfast in the restaurant was basic but good. Service was very inconsistent though, getting toast and coffee was dependent on who was serving!... More

The first thing that must be said about this hotel is that the customer service was excellent. The front desk could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The hotel includes a very warm and friendly bar and an excellent restaurant. If you visit the restaurant for breakfast, the corned beef hash MUST be ordered. The rooms are very clean,... More

Yup, this place is run down. The heat was turned off so you walk into a cold room. The old wall heater squeals and doesn't work very well, so all-in-all, not a great experience! Glad I am here late and leaving early!

I would like to apologize for the unpleasant experience you had during your recent visit to the hotel. Any/all rooms that are to be occupied during the winter months should have the heat turned on prior to the guests arrival. I will check with housekeeping and the front desk to find out why this wasn't accomplished and as well with... More
