Staff welcoming and efficient. Hotel looks great from the outside and was very convenient for work. Inside needs a bit of a refit...new carpets? Room very clean, but missing any luxury items i would expect at this level. Room service was fast and diner was hot and to standard. However, I'm guessing my room was above the kitchen as (with...

Popped in for a business meeting and lunch and it really is an ideal spot to do just that. It's not mega cheap with most mains in the £10 - £12 range but sandwiches at under £6 or a portion of chips/wedges for £2.50 can make it a very reasonably priced stop. It is close to the centre and yet...

This used to be a well above average hotel but has slipped down the ratings since we last stayed. Our room overlooked an internal courtyard through which staff passed regularly with either laundry or what sounded like beer barrels. The door banged shut every time someone went through the it and although this didn't happen very late into the night,...

My daughter chose the Buckerell Lodge for the civil ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening party. Many of us stayed overnight and enjoyed breakfast together the following morning. All the organisation was first class, the rooms were inviting and the food, both for the wedding and the breakfast the next day was excellent.

Me and my other half have just got back from our two night away stay here, It's location is very good, as it's not so close to the town center that you get all the loud traffic but it's close enough so that you can walk in or get on a bus for a few minutes. Parking was very restricted...
