1 of 5 stars

Firstly I was put in the building across from the main hotel. Seemed very nice as you walk but there it stops. Room 106. 1. Toilet. I'm not kidding when I say that there was barely an inch between my knees when sat on the toilet ( you can't stand cos of the space) and the tiled wall. It is comical. Well comical for about twenty seconds. 2. Noise. Some idiot decides to fix the heating at 23.00 at night. Banging and drilling outside my window, oh and the service door is right by my room door. After shouting at a grey haired employee and heating engineer that I am trying to sleep. The employee answered: we have a problem with heating. So what! Fix it when I'm not in my room. I have never experienced something like this. Never never never again. Incompetent guest unfriendly hotel. Stay elsewhere and don't be fooled by its first impressions.

“Fantastic hotel”

The suites are fabulous. Bed was great to sleep in and had a nice shower facility. The hotel staff can be a little confused between a suite and a junior suite (first night we were set up in a junior suite, but charged for a full suite). Breakfast and roomservice were up to standard.

“Lovely historic hotel”

We stayed for three mights in December just before Christmas. The hotel is right on the central square, which has a wide range of excellent bars and restaurants. It is an old historic building with a mix of spaces and rooms. We had three rooms on the ground floor, all were well equipped, quiet, spacious and spotless. The beds were very comfortable. Staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Breakfast had a wide range of good hot and cold options although I daresay you could do at least as well in the local cafes as well. We didn't eat in the hotel itself but the restaurants were busy and the food both looked and smelled excellent. We got an excellent rate for the three nights and were very pleased with the hotel. The hotel does have a good value car park and it is only a couple of minutes away but the entrance is a little narrow...we managed it but you need to be confident. Overall a really good hotel in a lovely, charming and friendly town.

“Very good - central position”

Stayed in the annexe, 2 deluxe rooms which we were very happy with. Excellent location on the main square. We arrived very late and had trouble finding the hotel car park - only found it by chance. We only used the room and had breakfast so cannot comment on other facilities. The breakfast buffet was very good and included cooked english breakfast items as well as continental. All self service. Staff were excellent, friendly & professional. We enjoyed the night and would have loved to have been able to try the restaurant. The only negatives would be that there was no full length mirror and the complimentary water in the mini bar consisted of an opened 330ml bottle with about 20mls left - clearly not changed from previous guests (in both rooms). We would though, definately stay again if in the area.

“A fantastic hotel, perfectly located.”

This was my second stay at this hotel, i had previously stayed in the main building but this time in the annex due to refurbishment. The hotel is a short walk from the train station. The annex has excellent character not unlike Hogwarts (as joked by myself and my colleague). The hotel is located on a quaint market square which comes alive at night offering fantastic food and drink. I will definitely be staying again.
