The environment. The breakfast was fantastic and the service very polite and nice. The room was really good.
Perhaps one disadvantage would be the bathroom. It was cool, but not really bad.
Location and the quality of the bacon at breakfast
The broken top to the soap dispenser in the bathroom. Being told kitchen was closed at 8.55 when breakfast was served till 9 (and we had been told on check in that it was served till 9.30 however the book in the room said 9), we did manage to get breakfast!
The staff where helpfull all the time always there to help out. Breakfast was great would be tailered to how you liked it.
The noise the toilet made when you flushed or ran the tap also the dirt on floor and in cups.
Staff were very friendly and helpful
there was a lot of damp/mould about the bedroom walls. decor was very tired and a bit dusty.
It felt homely like my own bedroom. Very clean lovely bathroom.
Couldn't turn the radiators down and thats not good when you're a woman going thru menopause In February!! So windows open!
Very friendly staff and location is very good. Breakfast was lovely and exteremely helpful towards children for extras with breakfast.
Stairs to family room were a bit dangerous and steep. Was a bit tight for space adding a cotbed in the room. Also some cobwebs which could of been cleaned.
The young man who greater us was so welcoming and had helpful local knowledge. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was basic but nice.
The shower was impossible to work other than boiling hot or cold.
Location, the hotel was easy to find and a reasonable price for what you got
No one to greet us when we arrived, had to use a phone to contact someone, They took a good 10 mins to arrive. Wifi didn't work in the room, but couldn't ask anyone for help Had to use the phone again when we left and just return keys through letter box.
Its near the town center.
no staff in the reception area. They should open the bar section so we could sit while we wait for our lift. Shower is very small. I can hear people outside talking coz our window's lock is broken. Somebody smoke inside their room and we woken up with the fire alarm which made us jump out of bed.
Location was perfect for what we needed. Very short walk from nightlife. Good parking. Easy to find. Lots of amenities within a close proximity i.e shops & food outlets etc. Perfect if you want a cheap stay for a night out!!!!
Morning lady serving breakfast was extremely rude, unhelpfull & patronising, everything seemed to much effort for her. Breakfast so small had to fill up on stone cold toast, ment to be full english look like a kids meal.
good location, nice staff
they do not like hoovering
Easy to reach, close to town centre and restaurants.
Lovely old inn on the outside, tired, dated and uninviting inside. Patchy wifi, unreliable heating (one room freezing, another too hot), a lumpy bed, old fittings, worn and dirty. No staff in sight except at breakfast. Wondered if I was alone in the building the first night - not a good feeling.
Lady serving breakfast very friendly and accommodating my young daughter.
Shower in room not good as was either scalding hot or freezing.
- staff where very good and they offered a good range of breakfast including english. - Location of the hotel was good and great for a couple of friends who wanted to be close to the town to enjoy the castle and the restaurants
Cleaniliness of the room was poor, stella can was found on top of the wardrobe and there was dust behind the bed which is a shame. It would be great if they updated the decor and gave the rooms a deep clean.
Lovely smiling friendly staff, convenient parking, "olde worlde" feel of building
The drains were rather smelly in the shower room.
every thing, staff friendy hotel ber cheap. food good. thanks sandra for all your help
not a lot
Good location for town, Plenty of eating opportunities nearby
Decor very tired
Had to wait for someone to arrive I think to check us in Bathroom was not clean Room was very dusty and not clean No one there to check us out
the lady on duty was absolutely amazing in fact it was her helpfulness and friendliness that made our break so enjoyable.the room was clean and the hotel so obviously steeped in history was amazing will stay again for sure
nothing to dislike unlless your oneofthose picky people who look for problems no matter what great value for money
good location and enjoyable breakfast.
bathroom was cold.
Friendly welcome we asked for iron and one was provided including ironing board was bit worried as window was near to road but didn't hear a thing slept like a baby very comfortable bed room very clean friendly welcome breakfast was cooked fresh lady who cooked was very friendly and helpful would stay again
1 snail in bathroom on ceiling
We were allowed an extra guest to come into the room for pre drinks. Staff were friendly and helpful.
We missed breakfast because it finished at 9am and we didn't know this.
the room was clean and basic.
Had to ask for more towels and there was no where to hang towels etc in the bathroom. We missed breakfast by half an hour (there was only a small window for breakfast) and there was no offer of anything basic i.e., even toast. So we missed out! Admittedly we were outside the time but to finish at 9am on a Saturday morning is quite restrictive.
The location was excellent, and the woman on duty at breakfast-time was very helpful.
There was no manned reception, and it took over 5 minutes to find the solitary staff member. The room was very small, and the shower room even smaller, although clean. One bed was comfortable, the other was very uncomfortable. Breakfast was minimal, and no other food was offered, and the bar, although stocked, seemed never to be open.
