We stayed last night after having booked very last minute and getting a reduced rate of about £67. As we arrived at 7pm and left before 9am, there were no parking charges. The room was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. Check in and out was quick. We weren't able to stay for breakfast unfortunately so I can't comment on that...

What a disappointment. The photos on booking.com are great. Shame it isn't to like that when you get there. We were in room 6 which was tiny. Barely fit a double bed in it. The bathroom was ok but again tiny. The walls were paper thin so we could everything going on in the neighbouring rooms. The continental breakfast was...

Very easy to find and close to the train station made it ideal. Clean, staff non intrusive, breakfast continental included but good offering of additional choices, I did have to pick a time slot but suited me and reducing waiting around, dining area small. Quite expensive for B&B. I would stay again if needed.

We visited for a single night before going on to a friends wedding, we were looking forward to a nice stay in a spacious hotel, this was not the case. The Fenners hotel is not a hotel but a BnB. We thought we had struck a deal managing to get a room here for £35 cheaper than the listed price...

I wanted to give this 2 stars on account of its great location, but I don't think location warrants stars. The hotel is terribly run down. It doesn't look like a hotel, but more like an unfinished and deserted building, that somebody furnished and called a hotel. The pros -- it is conveniently located, and the service was kind enough....

This could have been a fabulous hotel. I felt tricked by the photography on the booking.com website. The interior stylist and photographer have talent. The builder they have used seems to have been on the tail end of an over run budget because the quality of finish in the dining room, stairs, landing and my room was "unprofessional DIY "...

King size room with comfortable bed, however poky ensuite very cramped, slight drains smell too & no hooks to hang anything on. TV would not tune in and couldn't find instructions. No normal teabags available. Curtains hanging from rail, windows noisy & not sound proofed. Breakfast was a shambles, continental breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, pot of strawberry yoghurt and...

Photos make this place look great but don't be fooled. All a bit shabby and off the mark from the boutique hotel images. Dining room is poor, en-suite tiny and no hot water in the shower. However location is good and the full English ok., and if that's what you're after then it'll suit fine. Go to premier inn or...
