Excellent small Hotel..Good location to transport
Really nice comfortable small Hotel.Fresh cooked to order Breakfast was great. Extra friendly staff.Great location for Train & Bus stations.Free parking in rear yard..Nice gardens front & Back. Only complaint for a non UK resident (Australia) was Hotel only accepts payment on site in £'s and not through payment system meaning the Bank made 3% on the conversion to A$..As long term users with over 35 Hotel stays in last 18 months the reason we prefer is we normally can pay them in A$.. A small gripe but who wants to the Banks any more money.

perfect for our need walking distance to train station and bus stations
Katrina, us2 night family trip
Good 6,0
Hotel location was central to the city which was what we wanted. Parking was a big plus. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself was run down and well worn. New carpet throughout would do wonders. Cleanliness of bathroom could be better. Vacuuming the room carpet, particularly around edges of the room not just the main area is needed before check-in. Breakfast was good.
