Good Value and great central location
Central location. Fully automated check-in etc so no manned reception desks but check in was simple. Parking available nearby and breakfast would normally be in the sister property ‘The George’ about 50m away. However it is currently closed for refurbishment. Plenty of other choice moments away in the high street though for breakfast Rooms were well equipped, modern and comfortable. Mattress and pillows were a bit firm for my liking but that’s a matter of personal preference.

We had no hot water this morning as they say the boiler broke. We were offered a later check out time but this didn’t suit us ☹️
