      Individual guest reviews

      • The location is excellent, the bathroom seemed to be in need of updating and possibly a good clean.

        Staff were very distant, the bed and the pillows were really uncomfortable, the food in the evening was unexciting.

      • The location is very good, all the windows are magnificent and the mattress needs more padding and the pillows to be more supportive.

        The hotel vacuum cleaner has not recently made up to the second floor, the staff did not seem to have much direction and the bed was not comfortable. Restaurant was under staffed for valentines night and the food was really expensive for we got.

      • Location and restaurant excellent, i selected also because of being able to park easily. We loved the foyer design and attractive interior redesign of historic original. The other staff are nice enough, very comfy bed and pillows and cotton bedding, its bar/brasserie is fine, useful for lunch.

        Hotel decor very appropriate and a warm room. Quite unhelpful at breakfast.

      • Remarkably quiet for centre location and free car park and wifi that worked well. Reception area decor was good and comfortable, the room in the adjacent building had a adequate standard. Staff were very friendly and the bathroom was clean and functional.

        The worst hotel experience i have had in the developed world in over 30 years, water splashed out of the sink over us and the floor we turned on, the selection of breads/pastries is very limited. The lady manager has a rotten attitude.

      • Nice view from room no, free car park was a bonus and the location of the hotel was excellent. Staff were very friendly and the receptionist made copious notes of our comments. The bed was very comfortable and food was good.

        Decor very shabby and dated, bathroom bit tired, toaster machine at breakfast buffet was very slow. Restaurant was a little erratic.

        Weak coffee and unappetising fruit salad on breakfast buffet.
