5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is a very old traditional hotel with low doorways etc, which is part of its character, but the bar has a very good selection of whiskies, Gins and a good variation on lagers and real ales. Food menu is very good whether it be breakfast or Dinner, but the evening meal fish and chips is so big it beat me. Would stay there again without a doubt.

The staff very kindly moved my bicycle from the alleyway into the bar overnight so that it was safe. They were all very friendly and helpful.
