              6.2

              Very close to town centre.

              Pillows bit hard. Rooms bit basic for the price.

              The food was good

              The bedroom is outdated, hotel needs to be refurbished

              5.8

              The hotel was nice but the bathroom wasn't very clean, we did mention this but not alot was done about this.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The staff were helpful and our room was very clean and the proximity to the town and its restaurants and bars was very convenient.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              We found the location excellent, and the hotel staff very friendly and helpful.

              My sister in law was in Room 102 which did not have a remote cottrol in it, hence she had to come to our room to borrow ours, and finally the plug in was hand basin in room103 was not retaining the water in the wash hand basin, hence it needs replacing.

              Lovely location, nice & bar lobby area. Great value and friendly staff.

              Coprridors needed more ventilation.

              friendly staff, great breakfast, and the hotel bar was very good

              4.6

              beautiful looking building,could be a lovely bed and breakfast

              staff didnt seem to understand us when we tried to voice our compliants.curtain torn in bedroom,only two channels on tv.poor vegetarian choices..At breakfast staff didnt greet customers,not a nice atmosphere.menus dirty in bar.very noisey late at night.not suitable for a family with young children

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Great location

              Bar staff were unfriendly on Saturday night & not a great choice for breakfast

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              The hotel was clean and comfortable and staff were helpful and pleasant. We ate in the hotel bar and the portions were generous and prices reasonable for the area.

              The first room we were given was directly above the bar and having been told that there would be live music starting at 10.30pm that evening, we asked for a more quiet room having planned an early start the following morning, we were changed without fuss. I thought that the hotel rate was expensive compared to rates we saw advertised in the area for b&B. Breakfast itself was warm and freshly cooked though salty for my taste.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              It was a very nice clean hotel and food very good and staff really nice and helpful. Would stay again and is very good location for a lot of activities.
