Gathered for a large Birthday party for my mother. Sadly the boiler was broken and no heating or hot water in rooms. Although this wasn't the welcome we were after, the staff (Andrew) were faultless in the efforts to amend things. Was given discount and put up in pricer hotel 2 mins walk away.

What an improvement since my last visit. The staff are always welcoming and friendly but last time the salad was wilting and the quiche was dry. We ordered tomato and mozzarella salad. Absolutely perfect. Freshly prepared and as good as we had on the Amalfi coast! Highly recommended.

We stayed overnight for a friend's wedding and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was a good size and the bed was comfy enough. Tons of hot water for showers and proper big bath towels. Breakfast is a buffet and covers all tastes. I especially liked the fresh berries. The receptionist was really helpful and we would stay here again.

A poor show. I had booked a double room and upon arrival we were checked into a twin room. I advised reception this was incorrect and they duly checked us into a double room. However, the double room was definitely not up to standard. It was dark, the bathroom light didn't work, the window wouldn't open and the room smelled... More

My friend and I stayed here as a last minute thing. Was expensive for what it was. We had a twin room, with dead spiders squashed on the wall. The floor boards creaked so badly we were scared to walk about, but that didn't stop other people, not much sleep was had! The menu had nothing suitable for vegetarians, so... More

Outside is offputting and unwelcoming. We stayed for one night and was not at all impressed. Receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. No lifts so carrying luggage up to third floor was not what was expected. The room was small and scruffy. The carpet was filthy and window would not close. As it was pouring with rain was not ideal.... More

While the location of the Norseman was good close to the centre of town, the standard of amenities in the room was extremely poor.

Friendly service and comfortable rooms. We were triple share with our son but had 2 single beds and didn't leave much room for bags. Still, you're not in the hotel when your touring except to sleep.
