Have just returned from the Globe and Crown. The check in at the bar was speedy and efficient and conducted by a very friendly and helpful lady who also gave me information about breakfast times and directions to my room. The building is a bit of a maze with corridors going off in different directions but the rooms are fairly well indicated. There are quite a few stairs though, with additional steps up and down in places and no obvious lift so if you have trouble with stairs this may be worth considering. However, I believe there were some ground floor rooms so it may be worth requesting these if stairs might be a problem. The hotel is quite old and the room I was in is probably due for a lick of paint soon as it is looking a bit tired but apart from a big wodge of dust I found behind the TV when trying to work out how to turn it on everything seemed clean, and especially the bedding and towels. Toiletries were provided and although there was central heating in the room, there was also an electric fan heater provided if it got chilly. The hotel is located on a road which runs parallel to the main shopping street so it is very convenient for a wide range of shops and cafes etc., including a lot of the chain stores such as Marks and Spencers, WH Smith etc as well as lots of individual shops, bus stops, taxi rank, post office etc. It is also about a 3 minute walk to a massive Tesco Superstore which is open 24 hours - ideal if you forget your toothbrush or have a snack attack at 3 a.m! If the hotel car park is full, there is a public car park a few yards away which is free of charge from 6 pm - 8 am. This may actually be a better option for elderly visitors as the hotel car park is up a very steep hill so quite steep to clamber up and equally steep to clamber back down - especially with luggage. Although this hotel is also a pub, I did not see or hear any drunken behaviour or loud music as reported elsewhere and felt quite happy staying there as a single female. There is generally not much traffic noise in the evening or at night, but the road sweeper trucks start fairly early (around 7 am I think) and there are some early morning deliveries to various businesses nearby by lorries so ideal if you need an early morning alarm call! All in all, I thought this hotel offered reasonable comfort and quality and excellent value for money and I would stay there again if the need arose.
