Recently refurbished by the Brend Group, this hotel is very well run indeed by young, well-trained and extremely helpful staff. Our room (305) was not the largest we've ever stayed in, but it was fresh and comfortable and very reasonably priced. It even has a portable air-conditioning unit, though we didn't need to use it. There is a fast, modern lift. The room overlooked the town's main street, and one night (of three) we were kept awake by noisy boozers in a bar opposite. We mentioned this to the management the next day and they clearly had a word with these neighbours, for we never heard another peep thereafter. Car parking was a bit awkward at first, but became much easier when we were given access to the hotel's lock-up garage, where we were also able to store our folding bikes, saving us having to keep reassembling them in order to ride the wonderful Tarka Trail nearby (the purpose of our visit.) Breakfasts were excellent, as was the lunchtime carvery. We will very probably stay at the hotel again. It's a good place to be.
