Great location, no parking attached to the hotel but plenty of free parking on the front, old building and as such needed a little updating, friendly staff & good sized family room

Great staff and service. Not family friendly at all due to other guests. Drunks downing pints and whiskey over breakfast; clubbers returning through the night banging doors, screaming and shouting; smokers setting off the fire alarms in the early morning. Could not wait to leave. A few repairs needed in bathroom and carpets need cleaning throughout. Waitress at breakfast was lovely.

Was a very nice place - but had flu when I arrived and was put on the second floor with NO LIFT broken down. Because of the steep stairs I stayed in my room quite a lot with a TV that only had 6 channels runed out of tea,because milk was in very little containers, but staff were fabulous and the breakfast was very nice.

Gone downhill

Having previously stayed at this hotel, I knew what to expect or so I thought. The room rate is cheap 25 for one night including breakfast but it always used to be great value for money. My stay this time was not worth the money. The room I stayed in the shower was held on by gaffer tape, there was still rubbish on the floor from the last person, the bed clothes did not smell fresh, a vent in the ceiling had been taped up, the shower tray got so full of water while showering I had to stop till it went down. A great stay in the past but never again
