I went with colleagues after work for a drink midweek, hardly anyone in at all however cheery bar tending staff were on hand. A decent selection of lagers but only room for one real ale, a rugby named one, forget which it was, have to say one was enough. Lots of spirits available and wines. Decor is pretty minimal made...

Nothing was too much trouble for the manager and his staff in this lovely small hotel. The food served in the bar is superb. The rooms are cosy and clean. The hotel is situated in a lively street so is ideal if you like a bit of nightlife. This was our second stay and we will definitely go back

Stayed recently and found that my schedule had changed significantly. The Cargo staff got a room ready for me very quickly. Really good service. Very Good breakfast (veggie) and good room.

Stayed for 1 night, mid-week. Hotel is easy to find and there is a long-stay car park just around the corner (£8/day - although you can't pre-load for the next day so need to pay again at 8am or before). Good sized rooms and the bathroom had a rain-shower head, spacious and well decorated. Staff were friendly at check-in, breakfast...
