    5/5 Excellent

    Friendly and polite staff, very helpful. Very clean room, bed was comfortable.

    4/5 Good

    Efficient friendly staff and a very good breakfast. Room very clean with a somewhat dated bathroom. Big drawback ( probably this is universal in all assessments!) is the absence of an elevator/lift.... The hotel has a good situation and overall thinking about it I would have no hesitation about returning.. Thank you, Michael Gilmore

    4/5 Good

    Comfortable but a bit "tired"

    Overall our stay was comfy enough, room was ok and bed nice and soft. There were tell tale signs of it being in need of some tlc however. Just little things like tap inlay missing, ill fitting doors/drawers, lacklustre decor. Breakfast was very good and staff all very polite and friendly. Situation of hotel ideal, just a stones throw from centre. So overall a good stay without being outstanding.

    4/5 Good

    Staff friendly, rooms need a refresh

    Like other reviewers, I found the staff very friendly, top marks for that. English breakfast was pretty good. Our room had a new bathroom - or shower room I should say - which was very clean and modern, albeit the shower wasn't very high pressure, but it did have both overhead rainfall showerhead as well as standard detachable spray which was nice. The bedroom was ok but could use a bit of modernisation, small TV. Mattress very soft which is either good or bad depending on what you like I guess. Good location. Car park full on Saturday night, wasn't a problem for us as we arrived early, not sure if you'd have to find somewhere else if you arrived late on a Saturday at a busy time of year.

    Faulty Towers but with charming staff (sofriendly)

    the staff were really wonderful (no exaggeration) - central location - very convenient - breakfast cooked to order (less waste than a buffet) - all the guests were there - the building is old and has needed significant investment in upkeep over the years - single-glazed windows, ancient (but functional) shower and incandescent lightbulb
