I stayed at the Prince of Wales Hotel on 27/11/16 for one night girls pre Christmas get together. The rooms were clean and spacious and had tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The hotel entertainment was OK, a Neil Diamond impersonator, there was also a singer in the lobby downstairs and a disco, so plenty of choice. The... More

It was a great night with most guests enjoying the party atmosphere. Warning!! Our coach arrived 2... More

Have been to the Prince of Wales many times so therefore must take issue with recent critiques . I am not denying that it needs a make over...however, it has character; lacking in so many of the new, 'samey' spartan hotels. Staff have always been friendly and so helpful...nothing has ever been too much trouble.Breakfast, lunch, dinner have always been... More

Downstairs area looked warm and inviting with two real fires roaring and Christmas decorations everywhere. Reception staff were friendly and check in speedy. Was disappointed to be charged £2 for parking in hotel car park but there you go. Room was... More
