I am bound to agree with previous reviewers; the Langham is certainly excellent value for money. Although suggesting that it is one of the best in the UK is pushing it a bit. It is situated on a main road with parking to the rear of the hotel. The entrance to the car park is somewhat obscure. Turn left immediately before the pedestrian controlled lights. The approach to the car park is not good. Very large potholes, filled with rain water during our stay, it is a shared approach with the Best Western Hotel next door.
Our room was in the two storey extension at the back of the hotel. Neither the room or the bathroom is large. The shower in our room could do with upgrading and the extractor fan didn't work. However, everything was very clean, if looking a little dated. Curiously the mattress appeared to have a thick plastic cover over it, felt a bit odd. As other reviewers have noted biscuits and chocolates are provided. WiFi is free and works well. All credit to the Langham for this, would that the major chains had a similar policy.
Breakfasts are very good and very large. Service is swift.
The town centre is 20 mins away (on foot). There is a bus stop a few steps up the road, buses run from here right into the bus station in 10mins or less.
Good pub type food may be had at the Barrett Snooker club ( turn right out of the hotel) a few minutes walk away. Don't be put off by the "Snooker" aspect. The food is reasonably priced (two mains for the price of one) .
The Langham is conveniently situated for the town centre, good value and comfortable.
