I needed to stay in Montgomery at short notice and the Dragon was the only place with availability. I remember staying here years ago but hadn't been back in a long while. The exterior is the typical black and white of this area and the Dragon is described as an old coaching inn. It's obviously a very old building and the layout reflects that - a rabbit warren of corridors with no lift leading to rooms of varying sizes. My room was a shoe box with the tiniest shower room I've ever seen - the proverbial cat would have had no chance of being swung here. It's clean and functional with all the basics (TV, kettle, hairdryer) but the decor is distinctly dated, with uncomfortable foam pillows and mattress and a shower door that leaked. It was fine for one night, but the smallness of the room wouldn't have worked for anything longer. OK if you don't mind small rooms and dated décor at a reasonable price (£70 for a double with single occupancy) but if you prefer something more spacious and modern, this is probably not for you. Evidently the hotel is under new ownership so it will be interesting to see what improvements they make.
