Very Good8.0
I had booked a night on the 30th November as a treat for my sister and to go to the Christmas markets, unfortunately shortly after arriving we had to head home as my daughter had taken ill and ended up in hospital , hopefully get to stay another time . The lady on reception was lovely and kindly organised a taxi for us . The room we had was spacious and clean , the stairs up to it was hard going though as we where at the top .

Almost 5 stars
We had a lovely overnight here but a couple of things could be improved upon. At the time of our visit November 2018, the car park was unable to be used due to a tree being felled in the car park. This meant finding alternative parking and paying highly for it. It would help if the hotel could provide directions to alternative low cost parking or notify you prior to your visit about the car park being out of use. The room itself was lovely, very nicely decorated and they provided everything you needed. The en-suite were also very nice. Personally I was just a bit disappointed with the mattress, it was quite hard and I felt it would benefit from a mattress topper to make your stay more comfortable. Other than that we had a pleasant stay there.

An awful hotel.
It's a pretty awful place to stay. The location is brilliant. But otherwise it's very poor. There is no WiFi. The staff are un interested . The breakfast is poor. And God forbid if you get some loft conversion rooms like me - it is horrendous. It's hot with you having to climb a narrow set of stairs. DONT STAY here.

Great Stay, Very Helpful
Great stay, very accommodating when I called on the morning of arrival to request a ground floor room as my partner had injured herself. Good value for money and very centrally located.
