This is a two star hotel not a guesthouse and, perhaps, it shows how the harmonised VisitBritain/AA/RAC star system does not 'show' everything.
Location is good but the hotel really needs significant upgrading. One night in second floor room was enough; go for the first floor - one has been redecorated according to Karen, joint proprietor, who has been there just over two years.
There isn't a lot of accommodation choice in the area so it's almost a case of a captive market...
