Cheap and friendly. Clean. Kettle and beverages in room. Cold. Tiny heater. Bedroom door stuck so hard I had trouble getting out. Smoke alarm drained battery beeped all night. I notified staff but it wasn’t replaced.

Lots of character, central location, historic building. The hotel is in need of a revamp (taking into consideration the heritage) but shower cubicles in the rooms is both doable and recommended. Friendly service but the place is only suitable for occasional (not business ) stays. Lively pub downstairs and eating options nearby.

The property is beautiful as its an old pub. However the maintenance of some of the areas such as bathrooms and toilets were disgusting. Stating its an old building is not an excuse
