Nice Old Hotel
Great Hotel, very good value for money. Very comfortable with helpful staff. Location is excellent for getting around the town centre and onsite parking is just £5. Sure, it's a bit worn here and there but not where it matters. It's a very old building with lots of character.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Awful stay
In arrival no parking. Room was poor. Outdated furniture and the most uncomfortable mattress I have ever slept on. Also room on main road so noisy. Requested a newspaper which didn’t get delivered and was offered it on departure??? In tier 2 so could easily provide a cooked breakfast. Not told until check in it would be a paper bag with a muffin, croissant, juice and a piece of fruit. Overall I would not recommend and would not stay again. This venue needs investment on a large scale and need to start there breakfast menu again.
