At breakfast bacon was very dry unless you got there early
Staff very friendly and helpful. Room a good size and clean with good facilities
The bed was awful! But the room was more than adequate
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated in a great spot for exploring locally and further afield.
Some sort of loud extractor fan which I believe was for the kitchen turned on at 7.45am which woke us up and was too loud to go back to sleep.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice bar downstairs and good sized room.
During the 2 nights of my stay the Internet was not working. The staff member at reception was however very apologetic.
We skipped breakfast as we felt that a charge of £15 a head was a little excessive
Historically, an interesting hotel, which has had a number of famous visitors
The heating was off in the room, then difficult to get the temperature right. The shower was temperamental, too hot or too cold, difficult to adjust.
The history of the inn. The friendly and welcoming staff (especially the breakfast waitress). Very comfortable bed. Well located in town without being noisy
Spacious bedroom old esta
Noisy room and beds were not very comfy.
Staff were helpful and friendly and location is good. Breakfast was delicious.
Convenient location and good parking
in center of town close to other bars and restaurants
the room 107 was a bit smelly because of kitchen odours
perfect location, great facilities, glorious breakfast!
Room and bathroom very small. Hotel dated, needs redecorating. Only terrestrial tv available.
Room clean, staff friendly, breakfast good.
The breakfast staff were poor. The breakfast area was terrible and the food looked old. The sausages were clearly not fresh; they were old an rubbery. The fruit had seen better days. The only good thing was the bread, which appeared to be fresh.
The bed was very comfortable and parking is provided.
Good, friendly service; nice quiet room; good food; excellent location; convenient car park
Hotels should offer power point converters for overseas guests, few do in fact I know carry them routinely
The staff were all genuinely helpfull,comfortable bed,spacious peaceful room.
only down side was, the meals/ cooking left a bit to be desired. about 6/10.
position in the town. staff attendance good bedroom and facilities good cleaniness good etc
The vehicle entrance to the car park from East High Street is very narrow and needs to be negotiated with care. I wouldn't want to attempt it in a Range Rover or similar.
The food; the standard and condition of decoration; food presentation.
Mattress a bit cheap & bouncy, TV reception, Drainage of water in bath/shower very slow.
Location, Staff, Bar, Food, room-size, parking
Our room had opaque windows / window coverings (necessary as somewhat unattractive outlook and presumably also offered a degree of enhanced privacy). Some mould on silicon seals in bathroom.
Interesting historic building. Own Car Park. Town centre location Excellent cooked breakfast. Large clean room with character. Very friendly and helpful staff
Would have been nice to have had breakfast included in the price.
Excellent position, clean, tidy hotel.
Stairs a bit unusual up and down. Rooms a little noisy
Very good all round
The room was located overlooking the main street and thus my sleep was disturbed with traffic noise. I thought that £8 was too high a price for Pate & Toast so I never ate in the hotel. £1 spent on an overhaul meant the rooms and bathrooms were excellent, but every floorboard squeaked in the room, corridors and stairs which gave the hotel an overall cheap and shoddy atmosphere.
Very central and clean
