Stayed overnight here Saturday 13th February for a Valentines treat. Firstly, if you're staying here, they have free parking access for residents across the road. We didn't realise this and instead paid for an overnight pass in the train station car park nearby (only £3 so not a deal breaker). Building looks lovely from the outside and even better on...

Stayed with my husband for one night room was very clean and pleasant enough, you get what you pay for, bar area nice and lively with a good atmosphere. Breakfast was really good and all the staff I encountered were polite and helpful. Would stay again.

Stayed here for one night at the beginning of February, great hotel in a great location, reasonably priced, staff pleasant and attentive, rooms spacious and huge kingsize bed, we upgraded for a small additional price to the executive suite which is well worth the extra, but be careful if your tall because it's easy to bang your head on an...

Car park on opposite side of very busy crossroads! Not good for carrying case/bags etc. Very very slow lift. From the outside it looks old and tired. Room was great. Very modern and large. Despite being on a busy road it wasn't noisy. Food/bar area was fine. Good food for dinner and breakfast. Pleasant staff.

I've stayed at the Duke for the past 3 months and it's always been a pleasure to stay there. The staff are very pleasant and extremely helpful (even on the several occasions I've forgotten an item in my room following check out). The bar & restaurant downstairs serve great quality food and have a very good range of beers (local...

Conveniently located opposite the train station, this hotel has comfortable modern rooms with an excellent well stocked bar and restaurant. The best thing about this place was the staff, who were always helpful.

We booked a stay here for one night in November 2015 and have to say we were pleasantly surprised after reading some of the reviews on here. The room we had booked was a 'Double Executive' and it was so much bigger than we expected. It was clean, had an amazing bathroom and we only wished we could have stayed...

Visited for three days with my partner 30th December until 2nd January 2016. When we arrived the helpful receptionist changed our room up grading to a bigger room with a bath ( the one we had initially been given did not have a bath) for no extra charge. Room was large, clean and well decorated really comfortable with a roll...

We stayed for two nights in December. The room we stayed in was large, with a very large bed (two singles pushed together, but you couldn't feel the dividing line). The bed itself was comfy and the room clean and well presented. The room was overly warm and the temperature control didn't seem to be very effective at bringing down...
