Good hotel

I stay here at least a couple of days every year. It’s a great hotel and a great location.

The Bruce has gone steadily down hill in recent years. Given that it’s nearly 40 years since I first stayed there when it was a comfortable good value, friendly hotel with excellent food it’s unfortunately gone To a place I no longer look forward to returning. My room was cold but fortunately there was ample hot water for good baths and I had to use both (not very clean) blankets to keep warm in bed. The food was very disappointing and when an old customer joined me on the second night we opted to go elsewhere. I’m hoping someone will take it over so as to restore it back to at least pleasant! 🤔

For £55 for 2x nights, TBH wasn't expecting too much, but seriously I was quite surprised. Room was really good, the beds were very firm though, but room was blacked out enough for decent sleep regardless. TV fine, shower was very poor though, hardly any flow. But the winner here was the food quality, it was 10/10 superb, dinner, the Cajun chicken pasta special, was tremendous, portion was huge! Breakfast, friendly staff and very quick service, good scrammy egg, very tasty. So food excellent staff friendly, decent, helpful hotel looking bit dated, may need refurb at some point rooms decent, shame about the shower, but other than this absolutely fine. I'd defiantly stay again
