Had 5 day (4 night) coach break in this hotel in January at a remarkably low promotional price.
The hotel has lots of character and is situated half way up a steep hill and is about a ten minute walk into the town centre but it does seem a lot further on the way back. (But the steep walk is good for you, well that's what the lady on reception told me!). There are regular bus services which stop just outside the hotel (5 or 6 an hour) so no real problem.
Had large well decorated and maintained room and although unable to control the central heating (quite cool) an additional electric radiator (stored in the wardrobe) ensured that the room was always at a comfortable temperature. The bathroom was large, clean and bright. The daily housekeeping was friendly and of excellent standard.
The service in the dining room was excellent, the food and menu choices were more than acceptable. It is noticeable in all Shearings Hotels that a rather mean portion control system has been introduced and main courses are shrinking alarmingly. However if asked for larger portions of potatoe and vegetables were willing provided.
The bar and lounges are comfortable and welcoming with reasonable prices. The bar manager Abdul (?) is an experience not to be missed, very entertaining but super efficient at the same time.
All the staff encountered were extremely efficient and friendly.
A highly recommend hotel, especially if you can get a good deal.
