Lovely hotel within the town and easy access to shops, cafes, restaurants and local amenities. We had a very enjoyable two night stay and all staff were very friendly and welcoming. We ate in the restaurant on both evenings and had a lovely meal and we would certainly return.

Overall, very good. Room very good. Not so keen that you have to wait to be seated for breakfast. We stood for 5 minutes, staff seemingly ignoring us and the restaurant was half empty anyway.

Excellent stay but music kept us awake even though reception told us it was a quiet room. However, all other aspects of the stay was great.

It was lovely for our 2 night stay. Couldn't fault anything apart from the cost of £12 per day to park in their carpark

Very nIce hotel in centre of town. Popular with locals and visitors for food, drinks and stays. Our room was towards the back and was quiet. Our Travel Zoo voucher for this stay was a great deal.
Other Comments
Lovely old hotel sympathetically decorated but need to be aware old buildings don’t have lifts! Few stairs to negotiate to upper floors. Our double room was very nice and spacious but did have a lowish beam across the middle of the room. Fine for us 5 footers but might be problematic for 6 foot plus! Might be worth checking your room spec when you book if you’re very tall. Lovely comfortable bed too. Not much storage as mainly caters for short stays. Reduced by 1star as we had issue with TV connection but no big issue for us and would not impact us returning again. This was our second stay.

The breakfast was not good and we had to wait for 30 minutes to get it . Also we booked the restaurant for the first evening and the meal was not hot
