this hotel is cheap & the staff are friendly. Ok so the interior design is a bit old fashioned but that just is part of its charm. The floors do creak a bit but its perfectly positioned near the train station & a short walk from the town centre

This must have been a very grand hotel a hundred years ago. Things have moved on, and now it is at the budget end. It was clean and comfortable and quiet (once I closed the double glazed window). No frayed or threadbare carpets. Pub style bar meals. Breakfast was a bit basic and the staff -- I suspect the owners -- aren't particularly polished (I got called "pal" a lot). But I had a good night's sleep and I didn't pay very much. What's not to like? By the way it's directly opposite Bank Quay railway station.

We stayed at the Patten Arms for one night last week.
We new it was an older hotel so we didnt expect to much but it was close to the Parr hall where we needed to go.
Walked into reception to sign in, the guy behind the counter was sat to one side playing on his computer. He signed us in without once making any eye contact (very impersonal). However he did then show us to our room and was then very polite.
The Room. (Room 6)
It was ok again for one night, However, the floor was a bloody nightmare. It did not matter where we stepped the floor squicked/squealled and even moved under our feet. The room appeared clean but the carpet seriously needs changing. Dont bother to have a shower, there is just NO water pressure and the shower hose was split.
The Bar.
By far the best part of the hotel, The staff was VERY pleasant and chatty, The beer was a good price and very nice, the food was excellent and good value for money.
Breakfast.
Very good, a fair selection, and a good size. Happy with that ;-)
Overall, would we stay again..... probably not. How ever the price was cheap and the location good.

Room Tip: Avoid room 6. Floor very squeky and the level crossing outside gets on your nerves.

as a regular patron of the Patten Arms, I wan to comment on the utterly idiotic and malicious review which went under the above header. Of course the hotel is an old hotel, but it has the charm that you associate with, for instance, an Olde English Inn, and they do not gather the stupid comments of that reviewer. The hall and staircase are not grotty and are in line with the age of the hotel; the carpets are NOT grungy and soiled, and I have not in all the 15 years I have been staying at the Patten have I seen net curtains. I have NEVER had any problems with any beds, be they single or double in all these years, and regard the comment "repulsive" as a figment of a warped mind.
The hotel is warm and receptive. The staff are excellent. The hotel is excellent value for money and has a lot to recommend it. It is a pity that certain guests have nothing that recommends them!

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights on a short break (Room 12). Excellent early check in, staff very helpful. The hotel was dated and creaky but it was very warm and cosy. It was very accessable for the train station as most of our break involved getting around by train. Breakfast was fine and kept us going for most of the day. We would probably use it again when we come to this side of the country.

Room Tip: Pick a room at the back, it seemed quieter.
