Really enjoyed my stay, thank you.
The hotel is located in a Scout's park, very quiet and tranquil. Could not fault my stay and I will come back.

8.6!! Having a laugh! I blame myself for not checking the small print. But when i pay £55, i would at least expect to have my own bathroom! A small single bed, no bathroom, no evening meal, and a really noisy thin-walled room does not offer good value for money. Had to wait my turn to have a shower in the morning. On a more positive note...the staff were pleasant, and the breakfast was ok.

Lovely helpful staff, reception was welcoming and room was clean. For an evening meal a short drive into town provided ample choice.

Not the best.
I stayed for one night on business and won't be booking again. The hotel itself is clean and inviting, the staff are pleasent enough. Breakfast, on the other hand, is far from the best I've experienced in a hotel. The hot food was cold (lukewarm at best) so I left that and opted for cornflakes which were stale.....a poor end to an otherwise ok stay.
