    It has a nice location in town. The hotel pub is good. However, this place caters mostly to tour bus operators. The quality of rooms and breakfast is adequate at best. There was better value and quality nearby.

    The Columba is good value if you are paying £50-70. It is clean and tidy. The breakfast is good and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It is a huge building and a bit tired but quite adequate for a short stay.
