If coming by train or local buses, these are under 10 minutes away. The hotel is a typical Victorian building, furnishing and decoration by no means modern. Check-in was good and my...

The staff were very polite and helpful, however the room was uncomfortably hot and the pillows were very hard, which didn't allow a good night's sleep. The hotel décor was tired and tatty on the outside.
