Great value for money
We were in general happy with our stay at the Honest Lawyer. Our only complaint was that the double room had only a standard double bed which in this day and age in a hotel is really not good enough. The rooms were clean,comfortable and tidy. The restaurant served good food and the fish and chips were exceptional. I am not a fan of battered fish but the batter on my wifes fish was deliciously light and not at all greasy. The Thai curry was excellent. Breakfast was freshly cooked and there was certainly no complaints there, There was also an excellent array of cereals, fruit etc for those wishing a continental breakfast. The service, efficient and friendly staff from check in to check out must be acknowledged.

Holiday weekend visit to student son.
A little disappointing this time. The room wasn't fully made up on the Sunday morning and the room and the en suite could have done with a thorough dusting. It was fine for two nights over a holiday weekend but I've experienced this properly a lot better.

Fantastic staff!
I can't praise the staff highly enough. All my requests were met cheerfully from extra heat for the room to dietary requirements and luggage storage after check out. Nothing was too much trouble for all the staff with whom I came into contact. This made for a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Well done all!
