Great stay!
Our room was spacious and clean, please note there are some steps to get to the rooms . We had a lovely dinner and some drinks and breakfast at the property the next day and it was all great. The location is very central and close to parking.

Fair 4.0
This is a very clean and modern B&B, room was booked as a deluxe double which had a King size bed we found to be very comfortable. Room was very warm so slept with windows open. Breakfast is served in your room

Very good 8.0
A lovely bit of heaven over a pub
These rooms (above a pub) are brand new and decorated to A high standard. They have everything you need (except a glass, which I did point out to them. Water in a cup not as good). It was hard to say about the food as the bar wasn’t open and Covid restrictions still in place. You were brought a continental breakfast to your room however and this was fair as only two small croissants but loads of meats and cheeses to put on them. Parking was free (again because of Covid) in a local retail park a few mins walk from the hotel but I believe there would normally be a charge. All and all I would definitely recommend Blackfriars.

Nice hotel in good location & great breakfast
Nice room and lovely continental breakfast. As soon as we checked in they closed the bar which was a bit unfortunate but I assume it’s due to circumstances with covid.
