Dear Mr Stead As you will be aware I was a guest at your hotel last weekend and I am afraid to say it was not the relaxing nor enjoyable experience I was expecting. Whilst the location of your hotel is excellent in being close to the town and all its attractions the hotel itself and the level of service... More

Builders were replastering walls in the public areas when we arrived and noisy work started above our room before 8.30am the next day. I feel we should have been warned that work was planned when we booked so that we could have gone elsewhere, Room 5 was cold (sash windows are loose) and the bed was uncomfortable. We were moved...

Stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend. Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfy bed and wi fi in room. Lovely full English breakfast. They also provided soya milk at breakfast which I had requested. Location great for exploring and not far from railway station. The only reason I didn't give it 5 was due to the refurbishment going on... More

The location of this hotel is wonderful. The room is basic but clean. We had just a shower in the room that was rather cramped with the jet system (that didn't work) and a shelf in the middle of the shower. The windows were old, single glazed and let in a lot of noise, the curtains were too small to... More

Stayed here, even though they are renovating the landing area it was comfy. Very good value, staff pleasant and breakfast was nice. The only negative was i couldn't find a hairdryer in room. But I managed . would return. Reception area is nice and view of park.

Such lovely friendly helpful staff. Hotel was clean and tidy but room was a little dissapointing. Wifi did not reach bedroom even though we were told we would have it in our room. Room heater a bit tricky to work, but staff were happy to make sure the room was warm for when we came back.

The receptionist knew less about the room and facilities than me. No idea about the late check out price or how to turn the heating uo. From 8 in the morning we had the peaceful sound of drills and hammers since it seems they are doing reforms (no one warned us). Next to the center though.

Nice hotel, friendly staff and perfect location. Rooms were 'cozy' but ok for us. No hairdryer or iron and no phone to call reception but managed without. Location was perfect with a five minute walk through the gardens to the shops.

Unfortunately this hotel wasn't my choice as it was on a list my husband had to use for a business trip. The reception was not too bad although smothered in Halloween decorations. On arrival, although not on the web page prior to booking, we were advised the hotel was going through "renovations "! We were greeted with bare plaster walls... More
