    Rooms are up several sets of stairs, on the plus side there's no noise from the downstairs pub (they have music on Thursdays). There's a second exit to the rear car-park, although the hotel has only 4 spaces it backs onto the large North Parade...

    Breakfast was tasty if a bit small. The pub was lovely. The shower needed regrouping. All in all it was a nice stay.
