Fabulous 8.8 From 147 reviews

Very good 8.0
Hotel was central and ten min walk from station. The room was v quiet, with a comfortable bed. The shower head needs a clean though. At check in I was NOT told that breakfast was served over the road, and down the hill, at a restaurant. Breakfast at the Rubble was delicious, and friendly staff.

Good 6.0
Hotel is in a great location Reception staff were friendly and room was clean and newly refurbished. However...... we got into room. 20 degrees outside and heating was on full blast hot. I turned radiator off and opened the window the small amount I could but the heat didn’t really clear so it made for a very uncomfortable nights sleep. Tiny bed too which didn’t help. No bar or lobby of any kind. The hotel was adequate and not too expensive I just expected a bit more from what is supposed to be a 4 star hotel. All other hotels in the area I have stayed in before also have discounted parking at a nearby car park but not here. £30 for 24 hours.

Weekend stay
Hotel was clean and comfortable and in a fantastic location. Lighting in main room could be improved and bulbs could be brighter but overall room was fine. Bathroom had been recently refurbished and shower was fab. Considering the location, the hotel was nice and quiet on a night. Staff were very helpful. Would return again.
