1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2010

worst hotel i have ever stayed in. staff so rude, room not ready for check in until 4 pm. noisy at night due to a hen party running around all night. car park almost impossible to find, never ever ever stay here unless you like to throw away your money. better off stayin in the local halting site

just returned from the comedy festival and had a great weekend. the staff in this hotel are so friendly from the receptionists to the bar breakfast and accommoation. housekeeping needs a little attention but our beds
it was noisy at night but what do you expect for a city centre location with late bar and night club. car park at the rear was a ittle crammed but was free to guests. ate in restaurant one night and it was really good. went down town the second night and it was great too. everyone everywhere were realy friendly. will definatly recommend this hotel and city

This hotel has a very laid back atmosphere. We went there for a college re-union, intending to stay for two days (and nights) and stayed for a week. There was no hurry in the morning to get out for the rooms to be cleaned and the girls who did the rooms were lovely.. the owners and staff seemed to work as a family.The locals in the bar were very friendly and chatty. It really was the best break we ever had.

I stayed at this pleasant hotel with a group of ladies for one night. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
Rooms were nice and spacious. I stayed in a room to the front of the building and didnt experience much noise at all.Ensuite was nice and big not to mention very clean.
We had dinner and one drink included in the stay which was great value and set us up nicely for the night. Service was spot on.
Unfortunately, I had an accident after breakfast the following morning which was quite serious. A female member of staff found me and was so helpful. I was very upset and calmed me down and called an ambulance. I was taken to hospital where the hotel called a few times to see how I was. I was so grateful to her that morning.
nearly recovered now and I would have no problems recommending this hotel. Location is also great as it is a short walk from centre of town.
