If you're after a minimalistic modern hotel with no character this is not the place for you.
Upon arrival at this centrally located old coaching inn there was a problem with our reservation, but the manager arranged for complimentary coffees in the bar whilst it was sorted out. It was quickly sorted and the manager brought us the key to our room. The receptionist Jodie showed us to our room (Quorn) and we were delighted that we had unexpectedly been given a four poster room. Although a little cold on arrival, the heating kicked in and the room warmed. We enjoyed a good dinner in the hotel and a good breakfast. Shower worked well. Bed was very comfortable.
Staff were great and interested in their customers treating them like friends, as well as providing a great service.
It is an old coaching inn and is furnished in that style. A lick of paint will soon be needed in certain areas.
Would stay again.
