Good location, clean room and bathroom. Shame that due to listed building status the windows date from the 1950’s or earlier. But good value for money this time of the year. Leisure facilities have had a refit and well worth a visit.

Inadequate, dirty, temps all wrong sauna/steam, nothing in gym, indoor pool looked ok but outside pool half empty and green, what a mess, with a location like this hotel building and amenities should be 5*.

We had a bargain one night stay for £55 including breakfast. Therefore, I am reviewing this stay based on what we paid. The staff are very helpful and polite. The hotel and our room was very clean. Buffet breakfast was a bit disappointing, tasteless, poor quality food, please

After reading lots of reviews on this hotel I decided to book a weekend break for my wife and I. The hotel being a grade 2 listed building as others have said the outside is dated and a little shabby but you don’t sleep in the gardens! Staff are really helpful and friendly

We were told 3pm, and arrived early but they said the rooms were not ready - however, we were allowed in at 2.30.
