First of all the good points, we found the Breakfast and staff very good, the Breakfast Buffet was as good as we have had anywhere. The location was also very good, a pleasant 20 minute walk into the city. It was a bonus to be able to park the car up and forget about it. Now the not so good, i realise now that there are upgraded rooms at the hotel, and to be fair i never looked on the website, however the standard room we stayed in i would say is a bit of a let down if that is the standard Best western are trying to portray. Our room was very dated, dull furniture and carpets, a floor that creaked like you were in a Horror movie, a very musty aroma when you walked in, we had the windows open all the time we were there. The Bathroom was very basic, the shower was not that powerful but we coped, to finish on a positive the towels good and the bed linen did seem clean. less

Many thanks Mark for taking the time to post your review and I am pleased that overall you enjoyed your stay with us and found the Breakfast and staff were very good and that we are situated in an ideal location.
As a privately owned, family run hotel, your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback regarding the bedroom that you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. I can see that you were allocated one of the very few remaining traditional rooms that are to be refurbished later this year. These are in the Edwardian part of the hotel and are all full of character and charm.
We all look forward to welcoming you back soon.
