For a desirable double room it was very disappointing as we have stayed in many hotels that cost less than this that we’re more luxurious. Whilst we could not fault the staff in anyway at all, the room had many faults. The shower only ran cold and so we could only have a bath. This then leaked all over the floor. The bathroom door had a large hole in the bottom. The bathroom had not been cleaned properly and had black mould marks and also brown stains in the sink. The duvet cover had a large tear close to our sleeping head so the duvet was exposed. The sheets also had several body hairs on them. It was also not marketed that our room would be overhanging the local pub which was very loud until gone 1pm at night. For a desirable double room it was disappointing to also not have the touches such as robes and slippers you would get elsewhere. However the staff were wonderful, polite and well mannered at all times.

Fabulous location, welcoming and efficient staff. Breakfast options were really good and cooked fresh. Good bar options too. The only thing that lets this four star hotel down is the mold in the bathroom especially around the bath and the lack of hot water in the shower ( bath hot water only) which leaves you really cold

There was a beeping coming from the fire door outside the room all night which disturbed our sleep, we mentioned it to the receptionist when we checked out and they new about it and we were about the 5th guest to complain. If they knew there was a problem the room should not have been used. The breakfast was nice in the morning.

Excellent position, close to the centre. Very friendly staff - but as is the case with so much hospitality post-Brexit, very under-staffed. Staff working hide to ensure customers are happy despite these constraints. Will certainly stay here again.
