Overnight stay. The room was very large, immaculately clean, nice decor, large comfortable bed, very good facilities in the room. The bathroom was also large with a shower over the bath - a nice option to have a bath. There is also a small balcony facing the west with a river view, with table & chairs, very pleasant in the...

Quiet Hotel. Felt like the only guests staying there. Must be honest and say the rooms were spacious, yes it is an older Hotel but the beds were comfortable, free Sky and unlimited wifi were great value for the price. Staff were friendly, although I was called at 9pm to ask if I was going to be arriving or if... More

Disappointed with the breakfast. The restaurant is closed in the mornings so the only option is a continental delivered to the room the night before. The toast was already made so by morning it was terrible. Made from thin white slice and not covered. The power went off several times in the morning so the bathroom, which has not Windows,... More

I stayed at this hotel in April 2016 as we chose the venue for a business function that included catering for a party of about 25 people.

A little dated, but very clean and well maintained, friendly staff. For a cheap stay it was perfect as a base to explore the region. The fire alarm at 3am was not a welcome addition to the stay, and we had to specifically ask that cleaning staff lock the room after they had cleaned it. Access: wheelchair accessible room on...
