This is an all round good value hotel. Thorougly recommended. Very good position in the town and well served by other pubs and restaurants. Very friendly staff. Good selection of rooms. Great for a weekend break or for travelling on business.

Excellent hotel good price and rooms are very good. Have used several times. Staff are very help full and to top it all the bar is a Wetherspoon excellent value for money both food is good and the drink is very reasonable ideal when you work away from home through the week. Would stay with the family any time.

Despite being a Wetherspoons pub (there go my prejudices!) this is a great place to stay. Nicely refurbished character room, friendly staff, lovely dining room with a real fire, and more informal dining area at the rear with a great outside area for the summer. Highly recommended.

We had a Family room that was very clean, spacious and comfortable, especially the third bed being in a separate room.

I could have been bigger and you...

Excellent location right in the middle of town with good secure over night car parking. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff, good hearty breakfast all at very reasonable prices. We have stayed in hotels that were considerably more expensive and not half as good. Would recommend to anyone.
