        Individual guest reviews

        • Location excellent, good value and old, beautiful building. Not bad for the price, breakfast was buffet style and nice, the staff were extremely pleasant and friendly. The room was quite large and food was great.

          Decor looking tired and reception not manned overnight. The bathroom was a bit dated and the other vegetables had the consistency of frozen ones. Manager was very pompous and aloof.

        • Position suited me very well, very nice hotel and lovely decor looks like something out of a posh home mag. Buffet style would be far more appropriate for business travellers, staff are friendly and the room rate for a single room represented good value for money. The heated towel rail in the ensuite could not be turned off and the breakfast is excellent.

          Car park difficult to find at first, burnt food etc topped off by an abrupt rude waitress.

        • Great location and very comfortable stay. Reception staff were nice and the room was quiet a private noisy function going on downstairs. For breakfast there was a good selection.

          Bar often unmanned resulting in very slow service.

        • Location were good in an area getting around without a car is tricky, also the quality of the ceiling light is just horrible and not very bright, the rooms are comfortable and clean.

          Staff very slow, in the morning, I turned the shower on and sadly not enough hot water, food disappointing.

          Nice building let go to rack and ruin dirty from the rooms to the bar.
