A warm welcome, warm bed and good food, what more could you ask for. One night stay on business and very clean room and comfy bed. Had a meal in the bar/ restaurant which I enjoyed, think the locals use the place as a pub and a few in enjoying a good few beers, 281 is recommended

I stayed in room 221 for work purposes. The room was very dated, which in itself is not a problem as I realise that the room rates are competitive and for work stay overs I do not expect luxury. However, I found the room to be dirty and there is no excuse for that. There were tea/coffee rings on the... More

Stayed overnight for one night. Single occupancy B & B in twin room £65. I was in one of the unrefurbished rooms (225). Avoid. Most unpleasant toilet smell from bathroom permeated the room throughout my stay. I am told the room is to be refurbished in Jan 2016. Bedroom area has a low cost feel with poor sound insulation between... More

booked in for birthday party and on arrival first impressions were good. Bedroom a little disappointing being dated but adequate. Both bedroom and bathroom in need of a refurb. The most annoying thing was how thin the bedroom door was as you could here all the guests going in and out of there rooms so no good if you require... More

This is a small and cosy boutique hotel with a very personable and warm welcome. It will suit those who prefer an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The food is great and the rooms, while not at the apex of interior decoration, are very comfortable and will give a good nights sleep. There is also a very nice bar with very... More

I would consider ourselves regulars at 281 and always thoroughly enjoy the service, the food and our overall experience. I have to say they completely out-did themselves at the recent event. I have never experienced such value for money! The quality of the canapes was fantastic too. Its a shame we are already married because if not, Id be booking... More

Spent an enjoyable 2 nights there recently, staff are lovely and welcoming, food was very good and rooms were fine and there was plenty of parking spaces. My only small gripe was that the WiFi was almost non existent, the signal wasn't strong enough either in the room or in the bar. Would definitely go there again.

We arrived on the Monday, had a couple of drinks in this establishment then headed out to elsewhere for more drinks. We arrived back around 11pm and the night staff opened the bar for us and even gave us plates and cutlery to... More
