Dog Friendly and great service!
Great stay and staff very friendly. Great dog friendly hotel right in the middle of the town. Highly recommend and both dog and owners happy 😊
Steven, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Not luxury but good overall
Comfy beds, good sized room and big bathroom. Just a little dated and although ‘clean’ there were a few wee bits that could be improved on. Overall, value for the money I paid. Little gripe, advertised as free parking, but this is VERY limited and I was not lucky enough to get in.

Thomas John, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Pleasant stay
We were only there for1 night but the check in went very smoothly. We were too early as checkin time was 3 pm but we filled in our details left our bag in reception and the girl gave us a slip with the number of our room on it. That meant when we returned to the hotel we just asked for our key, it was very straightforward. The room was spotless warm and comfortable, as was the hotel. Breakfast in the morning was nice with a very selective choice. I would recommend thishotel
