Not entirely sure this merits a 4 star AA rating, but a pleasant hotel if a little dated. Very good location close to the main shopping area of the town. Not much parking space, but we went by train so it wasn't an issue
Good points ? Nice friendly staff and a nice big comfortable reception and bar area. Quite good value for money if you book through Trip Advisor.
Bad bits ? No air con so rooms can get hot. The TV was absolute rubbish and despite 3 complaints nothing was done. Breakfast was ok but they got our order wrong 3 times which can get annoying. Seems like a breakdown of communication between waiters and the kitchen.
Would i go there again ? Yes.
