8/10 Very Good

Great last minute trip
Lovely stay in a comfy room, optional daily cleaning but the room was clean enough and was only a short stay. Definitely stay again. All staff very friendly. New member of staff very nervous but pulled a good pint

4/10 Fair

Really wanted to like this place but disappointing
The bedroom was grim, no charm at all. Dark paint, poor decoration to old refurbished rooms, furnishings that don't match in any way, creaking floors and very old brown hotel furniture which reminded me of a hostel. The bathroom was clean but more of the same miserable paint. Tepid shower water. Breakfast was cold, none of the buffet was hot because the window was open to freshen what is a bar area from the night before. I note the rooms are not serviced for multiple night stays which is not acceptable at these prices. We dined out, returned and sat in the outside courtyard but quickly came inside and went to our room. The kitchen staff were assembled there, drinking, larking about, smoking and really bad language that guests shouldn't be subjected to. The bed was very comfortable, its the only good thing I feel I can be positive about, but we slept badly because of the outside noise from guests, doors slamming and road noise

Recent stay
Room was ok but overlooking fire escape. Breakfast buffet hot food was not as hot as I would have liked it. Overall though, staff very welcoming and in terms of value for money, I would describe it as reasonable.

Lovely hotel, clean, friendly amazing food . The only thing that lets it down is parking , we had to park on a public car park and it cost £18 I do think it should be subsidised when you are paying over £200 a night in the hotel .
