A lovely old hotel with creaking floorboards and noisy plumbing! We had a large comfortable room on the fourth floor. Large bed clean and tidy. Very quiet. Some queuing at times for the lift which was slow with max 4people. Food was good and excellent value for money. The staff were excellent ! Always very cheerful and polite.

Amazingly good value for money. Great service, clean comfortable rooms. Excellent food, good choice and plenty of it. The staff were lovely and so helpful when a member of my party left some things behind - they sent them quickly by courier. Entertainment good too.
