When we pulled up we initially felt disappointed but once we stepped inside we loved our stay here. Rooms are very tastefully decorated. We stayed in the Master suit and it's decorated in contemporary greys and black with mirrored units and an amazing bathroom suit. Spotlessly clean, an incredibly comfortable bed, absolutely no noise from the major road. My only...

A one night stopover for a single traveller on a leisure trip - it provided all that I needed. Clean & quiet, convenient for the town centre, helpful & friendly staff. Good no-frills accommodation at a no-frills price. I would be happy to stay here again.

We decided to stay an extra night so booked on booking.com. Reasonably priced and the room was lovely and clean. The bed was super comfortable. Only thing to let it down was a 5 o'clock check in which meant we had to come back to the room instead of staying out. We'd definitely go back! Xx

Traveling alone for work I booked 2 night at The Whittington on a colleagues recommendation. I stayed in the marine view room-it was gorgeous with lovely view. Had a lovely welcome in the bar down stairs which is decorated very smartly and for a pub had a very friendly family feel. I was very comfortable having a meal alone down...

I always like to try to stay in hotels which are not chains when I travel and quite often this means you end up finding some hidden gems. Unfortunately this was not one of those times. It started well- the room was nicely decorated- more like a bedroom in a nice house than a hotel room- with some nice little...
