We spent two nights at The Royal Black Lion the third week in August in room 208, which is at the top of the Hotel facing the main street. This Hotel is two stars and was excellent value at £100 for the two nights with breakfast. There is plenty of off street parking at the rear. However there is a gulley under the archway that caught the bottom of our car, there is an alternative route that takes you through the back streets to the main road. The breakfast was excellent and evening meals were very good value with plenty of choice and the staff were courteous and helpful. Now the bad bits, the room was very warm (which is a good thing in winter) and we especially liked the underfloor heating in the bathroom. The bathroom really needed replacing as it was tired and grubby. The carpet in the bedroom was tatty,stained and horrible to walk on with bare feet. The clock bell on the town hall opposite rang every quarter of the hour, and had an annoying delay when it struck the hour. It was turned off, thankfully, from eleven until six in the morning. There is also a raised area in the street below that every truck bounced and crashed over throughout the night. Now we understand that the Hotel can do nothing about the traffic or the clock bell it was more that we were not prepared and should have taken ear plugs and shut the window (the room was too hot). The only way to see through the window was to open it because it needed cleaning very badly. On a positive note, the bedding was clean and crisp and there was little noise from the other guests. The WiFi only worked downstairs in the bar/restaurant areas.
