The staff were all lovely, we were welcomed warmly and seen off in the morning by friendly faces. We were allocated Flat 1 (not Room 1), which is a family-sized room with the private bath facilities just down the hall (the other rooms in the hotel are all en-suite). By far this was the largest inn or pub B&B room I have stayed in, with a comfy bed, plenty of storage and room to move. Breakfast was excellent, bacon cooked perfectly! Free parking adjacent to the pub and two minutes or less walking to the Picturedrome, shops, restaurants, etc. We will stay here again for sure, very pleased with the accommodation!

Great atmosphere, late bar, real ale, friendly staff, lovely Landlady Eileen, clean rooms, great breakfast seved by a lovely lady called Val
Would stay there every time I visit and I would tell everyone who is going to see a gig at the Pisturedrome to stay here as it's a 3 minute walk and great value. Like home from home

Room Tip: If you're going to see a gig at THE PICTUREDROME this is a 2 minute walk

Stayed here last night and chose it because of its proximity to the picturedrome, about 300 yds. Clean and pretty basic place to stay but that was reflected in the price of £63.00 for 2 people on a saturday night { we usually pay £80 at Sunnybank } The breakfast was good and is served downstairs in the bar area between 8.30 - 9.30 .
Would I stay again?..... yes,
But I would prefer to spend the extra money and stay at Sunnybank .
