Great location
More of a bed & breakfast establishment than a hotel but friendly staff and a great location for the city centre.

Lovely but is very dated. Still worth staying
The staff are lovely and the location is perfect. Breakfast was good and substantial with helpful staff. But it is a very tired hotel that needs investment. I hope they manage to do it sometime as it could be great. Biggest grip from me was a room without a bathroom. Just not used to that these says.

Clean, tidy & full of character
Room was large and the bed was comfortable. Sadly no tv in the room, although the lounge could be used. Staff all very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was also very good. A lovely old building with lots of character, which includes creaking floorboards everywhere, so you feel like you have to creep around everywhere!
