I stayed at the falstaff with my partner and parents as we were visiting the beer festival. It is in a fantastic location and wasn't far from the bus station that we used to get to the beer festival.
The rooms were huge and had coffee/tea facilities inside. My dad is a regular here so we got welcome back chocolates which i thought was a lovely touch. The bed was the most comfortable bed i have ever stayed in, better than the one i have at home!
The bathroom was clean and had a lovely shower. The reception staff were great, very friendly indeed. The breakfast was buffet style which was fine and very tasty. There was a choice of a fry up or cereal and they also had toast on the go too. They only had scrambled egg (along with bacon, mushrooms etc) but we asked if it was possible to have a fried egg and they were more than happy to do this for us.
Parking wasn't a problem as there were plenty of spaces at the back of the hotel.
The only thing i thought was odd was that the bar shut at 11pm (on a friday night) but the lady on reception very kindly said if we wanted a drink she was happy to get it for us, so made us think maybe the bar should just stay open for a while! A very minor gripe as the hotel really is superb.
It was such a lovely stay we're going to book to come back next year!
Definately book it i thoroughly recommend it!
