3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was going for low cost and so I booked at short notice a twin budget room and paid £59.00 a night (two nights). Well it sufficed. It was not in the main hotel building but was termed a courtyard room. Access was indeed from a central courtyard which was used as a car park. The room itself was adequate... More

What could be a delightful bijou hotel in a lovely position, is marred by run-down, tired bedrooms and bathroom decor and threadbare stair carpets. It is as if the owners last visited B&Q in 1987. The staff were lovely; helpful and friendly with nothing too much trouble. Such a shame that a lack of investment is spoiling a potentially delightful... More

Had a family lunch here to celebrate my in laws diamond wedding. The food choice was excellent and the quality first class. The starter choices had something to suit all tastes. The roast beef melted in the mouth and the little filo basket with horseradish was a good touch. The other roasts where also good. Only one little thing, I... More

On the plus side - 1st impressions were lovely. The Staff were great. Room was across courtyard, first impression of room was good, nicely decorated with a lovely large bathroom, wall mounted TV and tea making facilities although the carpet could do with a good clean! On the downside - We went out for the evening and on our return... More

The Hotel is up for sale by the bank, this shows in the service, the rooms are tired and not very clean, the bed is very worn and uncomfortable. The staff are abrupt and clearly without training, and don't care about feedback as the hotel is being sold. The food is average for the price, The location is lovely but... More

We took one of the special offer rooms in the rear of the hotel. Certainly this is a budget hotel (well at the rear anyway) but it is still very good value for money. The room was basic but had TV and although the mattresses were very odd, we slept pretty well. The staff were friendly and helpful and the... More
