“Great stay”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

We really enjoyed our short stay at Arden House, this time with a group of friends. The breakfasts are delicious and certainly set you up for the day. We enjoyed several drinks in the bar lounge before going out to a restaurant recommended by Beverley and we are looking forward to returning in the New Year. Thanks again for a great stay.

We were rather disappointed with Arden House. The reviews when we booked were good. Perhaps it was our room which let it down....4 poster bed was nice but room very small and shower room also. Sealant in shower room had seen better days and was discoloured. Breakfast was good and the honesty bar is a nice touch. Wouldn't recommend it and it isn't a budget hotel.

Room Tip: We saw room 2 which looked bigger and brighter. Wish we had gone for that instead of being attracted...

We are sorry you were not completely satisfied with your stay here, however we have changed the sealant straight away. It is such a shame you felt you made the wrong decision when choosing rooms as we always strive to please but cannot make people's minds up for them. Thank you for your praise towards our breakfasts for which we obtain many excellent reviews.

I was very pleased with my stay at Arden House. The Hotel was clean, warm and comfortable and the staff are friendly, polite and patient... Breakfast was good value for money and the town centre was a short walk away... I would definitely stay there again...

Room Tip: The rooms at the front are brighter in the morning

We stayed one night at Arden House, we were greeted by very pleasant, friendly lady who checked us in.First impressions of the lounge and dinning area was very impressive. Our room was fine,only we did find the shower to be a bit on the small side. Also the bedding was basic.
Breakfast was excellent one of the best we have had in a long time. Were made very welcome by all the staff.

The Guest house was very clean, rooms had everything you need kettle tea coffee and the beds were very comfortable.

Plenty choice at breakfast, and staff very friendly, would recommend this guest house to anyone visiting this lovely town.

Room Tip: Take care when parking your car as not much room in car park, you can park on road they will give yo...
