A wheelchair user's opinion
I have rated this hotel excellent for most things but I am a wheelchair user and want to let other wheelchair users know the problems I found. There was no left-hand fold-down support for the toilet, only a vertical mounted grab rail. The bed was a bit too high for my liking. There are steps at the front of the hotel with disabled access at the back. The access road is cobbled, a disadvantage if you aren't using a car. But if you are using a car there are 2 disabled car parking spaces available for £15 per night beside the back door. To access the reception and the breakfast room there are 2 open wheelchair lifts each to raise you about 4 steps. On one of the days we were there the lift to the breakfast room was broken and the staff had to give us a table in the bar area and help to help carry our food to the table for us. The free breakfast was good. And another good thing was room 123 had a roll-in. shower. I could cope with the problems mentioned above and will use this hotel again.

Overall a great stay. Would stay again.
The hotel was great. All staff helpful and friendly. The hotel was so quiet only one problem our room was at the back and we could hear the generators working. We didn’t have the best sleep due to the noise from the generators.
