Our lunch for four was very nice, good selection of Sunday roasts as well as several other options, including vegetarian. Staff were superb, making us feel very welcome. The restaurant was pleasantly quiet, considering the day. After a starter and a main course, we were really too full to try the nice selection of desserts.

The hotel is located on the edge of town, and is very pleasant. Room was comfortable if small and quite a hike round a maze of corridors. Price was steep for the offer. Overall was ok - just seemed to lack that something special.

Stayed for one night after doing The Marathon Mighty Hike for Macmillan in June. We were shattered and needed a good rest. My single room was very small although the bathroom was large. Bed was comfy enough but very noisy (it was warm so had the windows open). Breakfast was very good. Bar service very poor, basically there is nobody...

The staff are very eager to make you happy, and breakfast was pretty good........notwithstanding the plastic "Asda" bread. A nice room in the attic with no noise from outside, but the distance to it is not for the fainthearted. The bar set up is just madness. You have to pick up a phone on the bar and dial Reception for...

I want to start this review by saying this is a stunning hotel, well staffed, clean and very comfortable. The architecture is authentic and very interesting. The environment was clean and warm and comfortable. However -I stayed on business - and therefore did not make full use of the hotel facilities - I did not stay for long at the...

Travelling with a companion in a wheelchair can be awkward and tiring, but the staff here were unfailingly helpful, with luggage in particular. Our accessible room on the ground floor was spacious with a large wet room, and the room service excellent. A good full English breakfast followed, and though we had to vacate by 11, we were made more...

I stayed with my teen daughter here one night. Very quiet despite being near reception, very comfortable beds, neat rooms and clean bathroom. Varied in hotel restaurant with nice selection. We had room service and cod and chips as well as healthy salads, both equally fresh and good size servings. Prompt in bringing us a heater as the heating was...
