working weekend in December

Not a good place to stay on a Friday and Saturday night during the party season if you need to be at work. Room 31 is above the function room and next door is a pub nightclub so unless your partying t... more

Good location and good value

The location was very central, our rooms were simple but clean, and the staff were very helpful. Would definitely visit again. WiFi cut out once but other than that, no issues. It's very close to the ... more

Dear SueLong66, Please accept my apologies we did not fully meet your expectations during your recent visit with us. While room 29 with its canopied four poster bed and the dormer windows in the vaulted ceiling is one of our most popular rooms, I am sorry you encountered issues during your stay. I would like to thank you for kindly mentioning our team's friendliness as this does mean a great deal to all of us. I do hope you have a happy and festive season ahead. Sincerely, William
