We booked a Saturday night stay for a wedding reception locally. As we didn't return till late (and after a few drinks) the noise from the bar wasn't a problem for us but be warned that it can get noisy.
The room itself was spacious and clean. It had the normal facilities with free view TV, hairdryer, tea & coffee facilities. Shower over a bath but the temperature was a little tricky to get right.
The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was freshly cooked full English and very nice too.
There is limited parking at the rear of the hotel through a narrow passageway.
Food can be found nearby at the "Town Crier" and is reasonable pub food.There are lots of other restaurants in town and an Asda nearby.
Couldn't connect to their wi-fi though had a signal but not concerned enough to go and ask for a new password.
There is no lift and the rooms are all upstairs so bring light luggage!
Overall this is a no-frills hotel but decent value for money. Just beware the stairs and the noise at weekends.
