    The staff were brilliant, helpful, and very accomodating

    The hotel is extremely dated and the rooms are quite old and shabby and in need of refurbishment

    Convenient location, comfortable, good breakfast

    the hotel would benefit from some updating

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    The beds were clean and comfy, and the breakfast in the restaurant was good. As we were on the top floor the view was also good.

    The room was old fashioned and dull, the shower room and toilet were dated. It was having new windows put in, so possibly will carry on and update some other features too. The twin room we had was just opposite the door to the stairs on the third floor, and as the beds were on the door wall of the room, every time it was used in the night I woke as it closed.

    It was a good price. The bedding and towels were clearly very clean and newly laundered. The shower was hot and powerful. This is all you need for a short-stay, budget hotel. Day 2 breakfast was nice and well cooked - both mine and my husbands.

    I would not want to stay for more than two nights. Downstairs was tatty, dirty and untidy. The bedroom was very tatty and in good need of a refurbishment. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable. The breakfast on day one was shocking - a small piece of rubbery, tasteless smoked haddock and a hard poached egg, for me, which I could not eat. My husbands full breakfast was a bit grim. NB day 2 breakfast was fine - a different cook?

    hotel generally run-down and in need of updating. Holes in bedroom walls covered with wood; carpets worn, shower room small and aged.
