Nice historic hotel with a nice price
Nice old hotel. Less than 5 minute walk from train station. You can walk to everything. No need for a car. They let us keep our bags there since we got there early. Would stay there again. Just know it’s an old hotel. As such, we could hear creaking from person walking above us. Carpet looked like it had been there since WWII. That being said, everything was clean and well kept. Our only soaking tub in the UK! Thanks for a great stay.

Clean, comfortable, good value
Convenient location, room clean and comfortable with modern fittings, good value for money. Reception is businesslike but do not expect to be treated like a long lost friend.
