A OK at Admirals Motor Inn
Only stayed one night and found everything perfectly adequate. Did not use kitchen. Room was on road frontage, but road noise only noticed in the morning.

8/10 Very good

I enjoyed my stay here. It's well presented and suited my needs. The room was spacious and clean. Admirals has easy access to the town centre and there's a dairy nearby for the odd item you might need. They do state that it is not guaranteed to be quiet, and as my room backed on to the main road, that was true. Most of the rooms are away from the road though and wouldn't have a problem. Richard and Lisa were friendly hosts and made me feel welcome. My only little bugbear was the lack of electric sockets near the desk, where you might want to plug in a laptop or tablet or the like.
