Was lovely to stay in an old Hotel. Easy to find. Maybe in need of upgrading, but the room was recently refurbished, amenities were clean and warm, the bed and pillows comfortable. Good value for money. Easy walking to eateries and good access to parking, although exit from ours had to be by 9 am. If staying more than one night this may raise parking problems for the working hours. Enjoyed the continental breakfast.

We booked a superior king room thru wotif. The room had worn carpet which was riding up in 3 areas near the door causing a tripping hazard. The bathroom had peeling wallpaper near the toilet Shower was leaking onto the floor causing my partner to slip. Rotten beading around shower. Wains hotel is old and undergoing refurbishment but please don't sell rooms as superior.Wotif please check the photos the hotel supply you, it was nothing like the room we received. The young girl on reception needs to smile and be more engaging on checking in.
