Enjoyable stay
This was a friendly, small hotel with a very welcoming atmosphere.
Spotless room, good bed and a great shower, I was very happy with the accommodation. Bar food fine, if a little too rich for me, but portions very generous.
One quibble: the bar is not huge, and the proximity of some of the tables, including mine, meant that I had no option but to be fully aware of the plans and other lively conversation of the bar staff as they chatted behind the bar through the evening. It wasn't awful, but there was no escaping it, and there was no-one in the bar itself being loud, which might have meant the team had no choice but to be so noisy amongst themselves - they were just loud.. As I say, it wasn't terrible, and it certainly wouldn't stop me staying there again - or eating in the bar! - but a bit of feedback for the hotel that not everyone in the bar wants to know the bar staff's business....
A friendly hotel, good value, easy to find, lots of parking. I would re-visit if in the area again.

Good location and good room. Let down by the bar food and the need for a bit of tlc.
Our room was very comfortable and clean but was too hot. This was with the radiator turned off and the window open. On checking out, the receptionist explained that other guests had found room 43 too hot also. Apparently it was because of a hot water pipe that runs through the room, which should be boxed-in. The hotel really should do that for the comfort of their guests. We had a meal in the bar, which was very disappointing. The sofas and easy chairs in the bar were dirty with grease marks on the arms. I put these comments down on the hotel's own comment sheet.
