6/10 Good

Desk service was great, staff are lovely. Room was okay, bathroom and shower were nice. Room went from being really warm to cold and back quite quickly. Furnishing was okay but room felt quite cheapish with the floor being really creaky. Worth the price still.

Good stay
Nice hotel and staff. Building needs renovating - during our stay it was very windy and the roof was nearly blown off. Couldn’t sleep overnight because of the rumbling noise of the dilapidated roof.

2/10 Poor

Our car was blocked in (by an unidentified other resident) for nearly two hours in the morning meaning we missed the recreational activity we had planned. The front desk should have registered all guests' cars on arrival as double parking is always likely there.

8/10 Very good

Nice hotel with character in a very convenient location. Beautifully decorated for Christmas in the public areas. Some minor issues regarding breakfast which were discussed with staff and should be easily rectified. Would be happy to stay here again.

4/10 Fair

Won’t be going again
Hotel is part of holiday group and had several coaches outside hotel. Checking in was fine. Was disappointed with the room and we smelt stale urine. Had to keep window open all night so was disturbed with traffic noise from about 6am. Breakfast wasn’t good and the service was bad. Had to ask for a drink 3 times before getting it. Couldn’t face it again for second day. Hotel insisted on us leaving key when we went out, but on return, reception was unmanned for quite some time. Phoned a couple of times, no one came to reception to answer calls so had to go round to find staff. We were not the only ones waiting.

Would stay again.
The staff were all very friendly, happy, polite, could not do enough for you. We booked for 1 night and wanted to stay a 2nd night but the hotel was fully booked so we had to leave.

6/10 Good

Staff friendly, room was exceptionally hot. Even with the fan on, the bath has broken taps in the sink, and once you turn in hot taps in bath, very hard to turn off.
