We had a deal with Wowcher for £149 for two nights bed & breakfast and dinner on one night. We had to pay £15 per night supplement for a weekend stay so total cost was £179.
Overall we got good value for money, it's a nice hotel internally, room was smart and done out nicely and clean. Location was good with just a small walk into the town centre.
Staff were very helpful and service very good throughout.
The evening meal was excellent, all three courses were very nice and plentiful. Normally the meal would be £25 per head and worth it. Breakfast was also very nice, plenty of choices of cereals, fruit, yoghurt's and hot food, tea/coffee and toast.
There was free use of the sap and gym facilities as well. We never used the gym (which was very popular) but used the spa including the jacuzzi, sauna & steam room. The pool was small but busy so we didn't use that.
There was also free parking right next to the hotel.
Overall a good hotel, very good value for the break but two things I would like to point out that could be improved.
From the outside the hotel looks a bit run down, particularly walking towards the hotel over the bridge from the town. A lick of paint/varnish wouldn't go amiss.
The only other thing was the shower in the bath. I'm only 5' 8" but had to crouch down to get my head under the shower and I was only about 4" away from touching the ceiling in there so anyone 6' or above would really struggle.
