We stayed for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary. The food and service was really good. The bar staff are really welcoming and look after you. We booked a suite which had a very comfortable bed. Its a bit smaller than other suites at other hotels but it was nice. Not the best view in the world but its what...

Spent all night awake listening to traffic roaring past despite having asked for a quiet room and it is overpriced too. Bathroom size of a birdcage yet room itself was huge lots of wasted space. Badly designed hotel swore wouldn't stay here again 4 years ago but choice so limited in this town they don't have to bother much!

We are acutely aware as a town centre hotel located on a very busy road junction, that 'street noise' can on occasions be an issue. We do provide earplugs in each guest room, in order to assist a peaceful stay. Furthermore we have...

Group Christmas party evening last night. I didn't eat there so I can't speak for how that was. However £17.00 + for 2 double bombays and tonic, for where we were, is robbery. Wine as well was appallingly priced for what was basic plonk. Not in a rush to return to say the least.

Dear Steph, Thank you for the observations you made in your review. A Bombay gin is priced at £3.50 a measure so the pricing is correct. We did offer several promotions on drink and wine throughout the festive period, which many guests found to be excellent value for money. Unfortunately your drink of choice was not included in any promotion....
