We invaded The Crescent for a 65th birthday party. Nothing was too much trouble. They even organized the music for the dancing. Very reasonable pricing too. Close to the High Street with shops, cinema, restaurants and clubs.

There was plenty of fresh fruit for breakfast but the cooked breakfast was disappointing, the sausage was dull, clearly a 'value' variety, scrambled egg was microwaved, dry and without seasoning and the only coffee available was instant! A coffee... More

“Rooms facing the street can get a bit of noise as revellers make their way around the town; it didn't seem to carry on late into the night but perhaps worth considering if you are a light sleeper or an early bird.”
