    Business trip but enjoyed the Quay side walk.

  • Couple

    Very welcoming staff and good service. Excellent knowledgable manager to talk to. Newly decorated rooms and corridors. Very clean throughout. Food and drinks were good.

    Had to step around corridors being decorated by painters. Beer selection was rescrited to Greene King beers.No local brewed beers available. Food was expensive for a pub/hotel. Not all items on menu were available but didn't know this until asking. Hardly anyone else at the Hotel.

    Staff were great and very friendly.Lovely breakfast.

    Disappointed not to get a drink on returning one evening. Bar was just shutting and we were told to ring the night manager from our room.

    bedroom was very nice, and the breakfast was very good.

    the only thing we had to complain about was we had the misfortune of having the scaffolding up when we arrive there, so it was a bit annoying to have that on the outside of your window, but the worse thing was on our last morning there, they took the scaffolding down, and started that at 7 in the morning, which means we had men outside the window, and as for a chance to have a lie in before our journey home was impossible.

    Lisa (Receptionist) was very helpful

    Hotel was being renovated, at despite ringing them 2 days before our visit, they didn’t tell us. Empty cement bag found in our room and lots of dust from the renovations. Builders had been in our room to plug in a transformer when we were out. Bathroom needs a lot of work (room 2) mildew in tile grout and the waste pipe from the bath needs unblocking. Housekeeping appeared to have made the bed and changed the towels, had to ring reception for toilet role! Breakfast was cold and unappetising.

    very friendly hotel staff. Rooms are very clean and are equipped with every thing one needs.

    comfortable bed

    Painting and decorating externally meant that scaffolding was in use - this meant that during the night - some people attempted to climb - understand that this was out of the hotel's control. Also live band played which was not advertised when booking,quite noisy when packing up post 11pm

    Friendly staff, parking facilities great breakfast

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The location was excellent and there was so much to see and do. The staff were very welcoming and we enjoyed various meals in the restaurant - younger members of the family left clean plates so you know the food was good! It was a shame that the scaffolding meant we were unable to appreciate the exterior of the building.

    The hotel directions from the booking website took us to the rear of the hotel. Instruction to find the car park were a bit vague and parking was difficult by the week end, but to be fair we were advised that parking was limited.

  • Older travelers

    The staff all made you very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and the bed comfortable.

    The only complaint we had was about the parking, there were not enough spaces in the joint carpark.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    lovely clean rooms and good customer care skills of the front line staff,very welcoming.

    Bar staff a bit surly and not very understanding when drinks order was placed.

    The car park is not signed so finding it can be a problem.

  • Group of friends
    4.2

    Not much the staff wern't very friendly ,the Hotel was covered in scaffolding, the outside area for sitting was dirty, the decor was in need of refurbishment, the bedrooms needed attention, curtain pole broken nad the door of the wardrobe feel on my head when i went to put my cothes away. On mentioning this to the staff they seemed unconcerned. On the plus side it was close to the town centre and in a nice road.

    Please read above for comments. when we went to book out the staff tried to charge un £135 each instead of the £99 we booked the room at . So overall not a very nice stay, would never go back or recommened to friends. I would like to point out we have stayed in other hotels in your group and have allways been very happy. Breakfasts wern't very nice and restuarant was dirty.

    This hotel has bags of character and is run by very friendly staff. It was very clean. We had some excellent meals here. We were pleased to find it very quiet at night. We would come here again.

    One or two bits in the bathroom needed fixing.
