    What a wonderful evening. Julie (especially )made us very welcome. The hotel is clean and has a lovely atmosphere. Bar man (Will) is so nice.We came to see an Adele tribute (Lucy) had an amazing voice. Will definitely visit again soon.

    Hotel was adequate but not worth the price of the room. Tatty looking rooms and the bathrooms were shabby. Very friendly staff though but I would not stay there again for the sake of the quality of the rooms.More

    Not first visit. Generally OK, but this time, food lacked care (burnt & cold); & place lacked any atmosphere. Staff friendly & good location, but appears to be going backwards. Good menu & plenty of choice, but shame about the delivery.

    The history surrounding the hotel adds to its charm and beauty. Upon our arrival we were treated well and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Food is excellent as well. There are creaky floor boards but this adds to the character.
