    Pictures did not reflect the rooms I saw. Changed twice for such poor quality however it was very clean and reasonably priced. I had to pay to upgrade however the room was still nothing like the pictures

    Historic, welcoming, some work in progress aspects

    The hotel is well located in the city, though the bus station is a little uphill walk away. Staff are welcoming and friendly and the refurbished parts of the hotel are cheerful and comfortable. The age and character of the hotel relating to its days as a coaching Inn are not erased and this should not be overlooked. The refurbishment programme has been halted due to COVID, therefore some elements have been started but not completed, whilst other areas remain to be addressed. I personally like the hotel and have stayed several times over the years, and accept some of the 'to be addressed aspects'. This time, the secondary glazing had been removed form the exterior window; which meant some road noise from the road junction below was inevitable. But the price reflects these 'work in progress' - so please stay and enjoy its history and hospitality.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Photos on this website do not look like the room we stayed in. The room (and corridor) smelt of smoke. The lock on the room did not work and the handle was almost falling off, we had to use the chain instead. The shower and bathroom was old and dated and just not particularly nice or comfortable. It smelt of drains too. The other room doors were constantly slamming all night and as a result, got absolutely minimal sleep. On the plus side, the people on the front desk were welcoming and friendly. We would not recommend staying there again overall if you want a good nights sleep and comfortable stay.

    One night stay

    We arrived very late—after midnight—for a one night stay so we just used a room. Night porter checked us in and there was £5 charge for parking. While the room was clean it was in horrific condition. Wall paper peeling, squeaky floor boards, paper thin walls (like the person next door was in bed with you), plaster in bathroom and holes in wall was a patch and fix job by a nine year old, and the furniture obviously was purchased at a charity shop. You could put a marble on the floor and watch it roll all over the room it was so I level. See pictures below.
