The property has limited space for parking and that can be a problem.
We felt at home here. Our hosts were extremely helpful. The location is ideal being on one of the town's main streets.

Not worth £60- I'd have charged £40- small room, not very solid (creaky, thin walls), basic fascilities
Friendly helpful staff. Nothing wrong but a bit overpriced for what it is.

I think their wifi gets overloaded quite easily so you do sometimes have to ask for it to be reset. But a minor thing for how kind they were to me. Thanks guys!
Close proximity to hospital. Staff went the extra mile when i found myself in a financial pickle with my overseas bank. Let me use their land line for hours and make a "donation". Scanned docs for me in their office. Sorted out the wifi whenever i was having problems with it. Made my partner sandwiches and left it by the door for her the following morning, for her to shoot off to work, as she had to leave too early to make breakfast. No fuss and friendly people. Thanks so much guys! A god send.

Single room was a bit cramped.
Good room for the budget. The staff was friendly and the music was good Saturday night.
26 October 2014
The staff were fabulous, friendly and always there to help with enquiries. The room was clean and tidy. Please remember that this is a public house so if you stay on the weekend, when it is busy, you might ask for the rooms at the top of the building. It was noisy but we are heavy sleepers so it was not a problem for us. The breakfast,although advertised as continental was also Full English, which was delicious, great portions, as were the evening meals we had - home made and delicious, very reasonably priced and served with a smile every time. A fabulous 3 night stay, highly recommended.... Great staff !! :)
