My husband and I had stayed there for Valentines evening, and had been impressed with the food (the room - not so much) so we thought we would stay the night for our anniversary. Sadly, it was a Sunday so they didn't serve food! OK - so we would stay for B&B and dine at Zizzi across the road. When... More

Where do I start????? Booked this place as a last minute night out on Saturday afternoon so didn't have time to read through reviews but the fact it had a four poster bed and was in a good location I went ahead and made the booking. We arrived late afternoon,managed to get a space in the car park,took out our... More

With all the negative comments about this place, we may well have decided to stay elsewhere, however thinking it might be like Fawlty Towers and worth a laugh, we decided to go with it. What we found was very pleasant staff with a good sense of humour (which some might misinterpret as rude!) and the banter between us was very... More

Booked on Expedia several weeks before the trip, in the meantime I had lost my debit card. On the day of travel we phoned at 1pm to check out reservation and were told all was in order, though were told check-in wasn't possible until 6pm. On arrival at 4:30pm to park the car the Bella Vita manager told us 'we... More

I was in the area for a couple of weeks and stayed here for two nights. Loved the room - it was beautifully decorated with a king size bed, large sideboard containing a mini-fridge, huge rococo-style mirror, TV and DVD player, and really good power shower. The bathroom had a heated towel rail and was nice and warm. Only issue... More

Delicious food in restaurant but hotel rooms 36 & 11 are poor standard. Musty, dirty & very much in need of a refurbish. First room resembled a bedsit, dead insects behind curtains & broken toilet seat. Second room, lumpy bed, hole in bathroom door, musty smell which no amount of spray would disguise and shower dirty.

Visited recently after seeing previous reviews and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. When we arrived we were taken through to the bar and seated on comfortable chairs to have a pre-dinner drink and look over the menu. The owner welcomed us and told us all about the specials on offer and took our order for dinner and wine. Drinks finished we... More

We went to the restaurant to celebrate our Silver wedding anniversary with a couple of friends. We were welcomed at the door and invited to go to the bar for a drink. The room where the bar is was quite large with soft chairs & settees, we were each given a menu & the owner explained what the 'specials' were.... More
