This was always one of the best gay bars of the 90s and into the noughties. Like many older gay bars it has started to slide on the quality (or lack of it) of the clientele frequenting the bar. Lots of down and out looking types with glazed expressions (men and women). However, I have found the staff there to... More

Stayed here on a cheap deal with hotels.com £35/night. Supposed to be £60. Great location and plenty of albeit expensive parking nearby. The reception is on the 1st floor and you gain access through the bar initially and then given a key for the hotel access door. The corridors are in desperate need of decorating as it gives a terrible... More

Stayed here for two nights and had a pleasant stay. The beds were comfy and the staff were all lovely. The area was nice too and we had no trouble.

Everytime I visit this bar I am guaranteed a good night. The music and staff are great. The venue is relaxed classic style gay bar that welcomes a good mix of people. I recommend it to friends and family people of all ages.

For the price, this hotel is fantastic. It's above a club, but the noise wasn't an issue for us. The business is family owned and the staff are great and very helpful. The rooms were nice, clean and secure and the beds were also clean with fresh sheets. There is a special exit and entrance for those that have booked... More

Love the drag shows! Love watching the hen parties on the poles! Being the most femme in my group of lesbuddies I also love that I have the highest score on the punch bag between us. In the daytime it's a nice place to relax with the other side being very pub-like with a pool table and a jukebox so... More

Dont be surprised to see this place absolutely heaving on a weekend!

Cheap drinks, fast service at the bars. Entertainment on through the week. In a great location... More
