Stayed here recently, the hotel had mixed reviews, we thought it was a bit pricey, but booked it anyway. No lifts, only stairs, which didn't bother us, but may bother older or impaired people. The hotel has a small car park to the rear. Our room was on the second floor, it was very clean, comfortable, large bed, TV &... More

Entering from the car park at the rear of the hotel, my heart sank, I could see the look of disappointment on my wife's face. However, upon emerging into the reception area, wow,!!

Definitely in need of some TLC. A good location with off street parking at the rear. Our room was quite small & the bathroom was dated. The mattress probably should have been replaced a decade ago. The reception clerk charged us for the room despite the fact that we had pre paid. He reluctantly refunded the charge when we produced... More
