We stayed here on New Year's Eve because the location was very close to where we were attending a function. It is really a pub with rooms, as opposed to a proper hotel. You enter straight into the bar and there is no reception, so someone comes out from behind the bar and searches through a big box for your key. The room was large, but very very cold, especially during the night, I was absolutely freezing. This is not helped by the fact that the beds do not have duvets, but only inadequate blankets. The bathroom is rather basic, with a grubby shower curtain. The cream carpet is in dire need of cleaning, and the fact that the tiny tv is placed on top of the wardrobe makes it uncomfortable to watch. Apart from this, the room is adequate, with nice blinds and curtains. We returned from our function at 1:30 to find a New Year's Eve party going on at full blast until 3:00, making sleep absolutely impossible, it was like having a disco in the same room it was so loud. Whilst I appreciate it was New Year's Eve, I do feel that we should have been warned about this when we booked, as 3:00am is quite late by anyone's standards. Apart from this, staff were friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast (included) was fine - choice of cereals, one piece of toast and a warm croissant each. However, I do feel that £90 was expensive for what we got, I do not think we got value for money, especially as we only had a few hours sleep due to their party! I would not stay here again, I feel it is way overpriced for what it is.
