      Friendly staff, good food, nice surroundings, plenty of parking space and an easy commute either by car or bus service into the city.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      This hotel had character and the decor matched the age of the building which retained many original features.We lliked the fact that there was free parking.The views were also outstanding from it's elevated position. Overall we rated this hotel good value for money.

      The only issue we would pick up was the fact that the bedroom and bathroom could have done with been warmer.Our room had a large bay window which attracted the cold.An upgrade of the heating system is overdue.

      It was located where I needed to be for the following day.

      I was in room 302 - great view!! I have stayed in this room before (about 6 months ago) and had to be moved as the room smelled of vomit. Unfortuntately, the room still smelt faintly of vomit. Had to keep the window open slightly to keep the air fresh in the room. The menu selection for room service is limited and does not change.

      Fabulous stay, good bus services to city centre

      Easy access, free Wi fi

      Unfortunately the Wi Fi was not working.Parking is a bit of a squeeze.

    • Older travelers

      The hotel is in a good situation with complimentary parking. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good ( did not eat dinner in the hotel). The room was well furnished with a nice view.

      The bed was rather hard and the pillows very lumpy.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      room was ready early and we were able to check in earlier than expected.the hotel has a bit of character/charm about it.reception and bar staff were the only staff we had any contact with and they were all pleasant,helpful and attentive.

      the only slight negative is,if you want to be right in the heart of things,its quite far out from the city centre, about £10 in a taxi.but like i said only slight,we knew that before we booked.

    • Group of friends

      Next to the bus stop, first staff served us was very nice and helpful

      Very old outdated hotel next to a very busy road Double rooms were very very small All staff apart from the first one we met did not smile or greeting you, we made effort to say hi to them and still didn't manage to get a smile out of them Breakfast staff were terrible, didn't speak much English and did not know how to serve customers Cleaner left our windows open while we were out whole day Absolutely dreadful experience and unpleasent place to stay, will not go back or recommend

    • Older travelers

      I knew exactly what to expect as I used to work at the hotel many, many years ago. I like that it has not changed into a modern non atmospheric hotel. It has character and is situated in a very central area. The staff were very friendly and attentive, nothing was of any trouble.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Room comfortable with wonderful view, friendly staff, easy car parking, excellent breakfasts, good location because we have family nearby, would also be good for walks in summer

      No lift (we are over 80), plumbing in our room needed some attention

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      overall the location and atmosphere were ideal for our honeymoon

      nothing

    • Family with children
      6.6

      Very friendly staff Plentiful breakfast Lack of traffic noise at night

      Drunks not being able to find their room in the middle of the night and trying to get into ours! The hotel should employ more night staff on rugby weekends with one dedicated to patrolling the corridors.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      My wife and I very like your hotel

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The hotel was in the ideal location for my stay. The transport links into the city are good. The staff were very friendly and efficient and the room was well serviced and clean.

      Internal Signage a bit confusing as I got lost trying to follow the signage to my room!!

    • Family with children
      8.8

      The hotel was close to the town but not in a noisy area the staff were very welcoming and the rooms were comfortable for our needs
