        Individual guest reviews

        • I liked the central location and convenient for lake. Good clean and comfortable hotel, proper home made chips. The staff were very friendly, room was spotless and the evening meal in the restaurant was average at best.

          Nice old hostlery in town centre, noisy due to nightclub nearby and poor quality, greasy and dirty cutlery. Not worth the money, very disappointing and slow service, overpriced at £104 pernight for bed and breakfast. Pillow was hard and food was not great.

        • Etc. excellent location for eating and central to town. Adequate for short stay, the food in the kings was excellent, all home made and great service, staff were very pleasant and hard working. The room was reasonably clean, the bar/restraunt was cosy and breakfast good as was early bird evening meal.

          Decor is a bit dated.

        • Position was fantastic, free parking also at the car park behind the hotel was unexpected and the service was very good from reception to servers. Bed was really comfortable, breakfast was excellent and receptionist was friendly.

          The room was narrow.
