The Market House is a lovely hotel and is in town and close to the station. Our room was spotlessly clean, looked great and was very comfortable. The coffee machine and Bramley products in the room are a nice touch. We travelled at a time when the pub had not been reopened after lockdown so cannot comment on those facilities. However, it wasn’t problematic finding somewhere else to have breakfast due to the location. Andreea was very welcoming and more than helpful during our stay - thank you. Will definitely stay in the hotel again and would recommend to others.

The room was a good size, clean and well presented. In addition staff were helpful and friendly. Easy check-in and great location. Only downside is the sound insulation which could be improved. Would stay again.
