Exceptional 10.0
Fabulous hotel
It was a gift from family for our wedding. We received a lovely gift left in the room from the hotel staff. The location is ideal and although their was a nightclub two floors below us we still slept great. Breakfast was amazing.

Fair 4.0
Disappointed with hotel the location central but hotel nothing to offer.. i asked about parking told reduced rate i shopping centre car park but when leaving was told reduced rate only for 24 hrs. Told at check in hotel is noisy due to late bar would have been better if i knew this before booking as my elderly mother found it loud in room.

The Smellington Arms?
A very nice location near Eyre Square. Reception was very kind and helpful; however, our room had a very strong and unpleasant odor. We only stayed for a night, so we decided to push through it, but there was an overwhelming damp smell in the room, which definitely affected our overall experience. Also be aware that the location is convenient but a bit noisy, as there are many pubs nearby and a nightclub connected to the hotel. We were on the second floor which helped muffle the noise a bit. Overall, the location was great, but we wouldn’t stay again.
