    Have been into the premises and called to make a booking. On both occasions very rude and uninterested person serving both times. Got the feeling they were not interested in our business and we were an annoyance. Would not recommend anyone to stay at here.

    Fantastic value. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was comfortable, well appointed and quiet. Free breakfast included plus free parking. Great location right in the centre of town. Only negative would be the pub food wasn't very good.

    The hotel is a beautiful old building but the updates have been odd and are definitely out of date. The place made me feel uneasy like it held such a history perhaps it could be haunted. This was the third place we booked through booking.com...More
