8/10 Very good

Looks can be deceiving!!
When you approach hotel and see the scaffold up don’t panic - the interior is far better than the exterior, service was excellent and the bar/restaurant superb… Good value for money

Was sceptical upon arrival but was very pleasantly surprised. Service was great and the room was excellent. Going through renovations but it didn’t affect us at all and results are awesome.

4/10 Fair

It’s being restored right now.
The building is under scaffolding and should be avoided until resolved. Our bathroom had been renovated but not the bedroom - which featured a saggy bed and stained cupboards. Wifi was as good as non existent. Car park is first come first served opposite the entrance and we got lucky. Staff friendly and helpful.
