Wee fat Jim
i stayed for one night only as i was working in the train station, the food was good and my overnight stay was very good for a very tired workman.

Great staff but in part missing something
The staff were wonderful and couldn’t do enough. They are a big plus plus. They tried to get me earlier breakfast too as I was leaving very early. The location is perfect for the train station. As far as the room was considered, it was traditional and ok. The bathroom toiletries were very basic - one small soap and an one in one cleansing gel attached to shower wall. Building was historical and quite endearing but felt abit tired in parts. I felt it wasn’t good value for money as the amenities were basic didn’t make you feel that wow. There was no hot water in basin but I didn’t report until the end so I can’t really hold against.

Greated warmly and receptionist remembered I had stayed there previously. Room spacious and well laid out for a business traveler. Only down side was getting the shower to operate at a comfortable temperature! Breakfast food was excellent and service was great.
