Really had a good stay despite the building work. Room was bright and warm , although a little on the small side. The full English breakfast was excellent made even better by the service given by Julia (5 stars to her) will definitely recommend this hotel and stay again

This place is the pits. If you like living and sleeping on a building site then this is definitely for you. Hammering and banging until 6pm, angle grinder going out side my window also from 8:15 in the morning. No mention of this when i booked ! Breakfast was a joke , soggy bread with what i thought was scrambled...

Booked this hotel before Xmas as a cheeky night away to look forward to in the New Year. Received an email a few days before informing us of some building work that had overrun. On arrival the hotel looked like a building site. Bare walls a makeshift check in and unkempt staff. The room was clean, freezing and smelt of...

Hello, Thank you for your review. As our hotel was closed for a month during January, we made sure to ring everybody who was checking in on our first day of reopening, to let them know that our renovation work has suffered a small delay but unfortunately we could not reach you on the number you had provided. We were...

The hotel was very handy to get to the shops on lord street only a five minute walk away. Would defiantly recommend this hotel as it was in a very...

I stayed with my Mum and Dad. I had a Double Room ( Room 10) which I was impressed with and a Big Shower. My parents had Room 5 which was very nice and well decorated. There was a Bath in the room. The food was good and the drinks are very reasonable.

We stayed here for the weekend but at no time where we told about scaffolding building work going on until late we arrived. First morning breakfast was OK but on the Sunday 18.12.2016 my partners breakfast was cold and my scrambled eggs were dry and tasteless. Our room was number 1 in which we could not open the curtains as...

We stayed for 5 nights, we'd booked with Booking dot com, a good price for us, though I will say, we'd probably pay more if needed by booking direct, we enjoyed it so much!

Hi, Thank you for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. That's very kind, but we wouldn't charge you more than our listed price on booking.com, in fact we tend to offer guests a little bit of a better deal if you book with us directly. Keep that in mind for next time ;) Kind Regards, Agnes
