Although this hotel does need a little tlc and modernisation we found it very comfortable, welcoming and ideal location for our needs. Our room, 207 on the second floor was located at the side of the building towards the back and had we no problem with any noise from any of the bars or restaurants from the High Street. There is a lift. The only problem we had, as there was no air-conditioning, we had to have the window open. This in itself was not a problem, the problem was the two un-invited and non paying guests that had entered our room while we were out! The two wood pigeons seemed perfectly relaxed and at home in the room so had obviously done it many times before! They vacated without too much trouble and we kept the window shut when we were out. The reception staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Bar staff also helpful. We didn’t eat in the hotel, but the dining area looked well kept and very clean. All of the hotel was clean and tidy. Collapse
Needs some TLC....

Stayed for one night before a cruise in July 17 as a couple. The hotel is quite inviting from the outside, has ample parking (chargeable nightly @ £5). Reception were friendly and welcoming and we were quickly shown to our room. The double room on the 1st floor was small but adequate. The bedding was very clean, and there were tea & coffee making facilities in the room.. It was a very hot night but they supplied a fan in the room. The bathroom was in dire need of a makeover, grouting was stained and paint was peeling. They have this very modern green sink installed in an otherwise white bathroom, which is very out of place and actually quite ugly. Plenty of towels and essential mini toiletries. The bar was typical of a large chain hotel, too bright and very little atmosphere. We did not have breakfast at the hotel, but for what we paid it is certainly over-rated, a 3 star would sum it up.

We liked the historical aspect of hotel even though there were 2 sets of stairs we had lug our heavy suit cases down/up to get to our room. Definitely not a 4 star hotel. Our Room 105 was on the alleyway. Even though the weather was mild -the room was hot with no air conditioner or fans so we were forced to open all available windows for the little breeze we could get. Unfortunately very noisy patrons spilled out of the bar into the alley. The raucous noise levels meant we were unable to sleep until the bar closed and the stragglers finally left at around 1am. Then 7.30am next morning a group of smokers sat below our window chatting loudly which woke us up. There was no hairdryer provided. The shower was over a high bathtub which meant my 80 year old mother could not get in to shower. Would not recommend this hotel. Collapse

Stayed one night prior to our cruise departure. 2 rooms for our family of 5 and both very nice and clean. We were too early for check in, so they secured our bags until ready. They were ahead of schedule to have the rooms ready and both rooms were very clean and roomy. Great location for in town walking and close enough to the cruise port to walk (about a 15 minute walk via a sidewalk). Lovely and cozy bar (say hello to Lukanderia, she's a love and extremely friendly!!). Restaurant on site, but did not visit. Very pleased with the property, convenient, reasonably priced, comp wifi, and friendly staff. Collapse
