                  7.0

                  I liked the room..it had charm but still had all the modern facillities. The hotel staff were polite and answered all questions clearly.

                  The only downside was that the ceiling was slightly too low for my boyfriend in the bedroom, and it would have been nice top have more choice at the hotel bar, for dinner.

                  It was a lovely hotel, good value an the staff were excellent.

                • Older travelers
                  4.6

                  The old world style of the hotel is attractive, the Bar meals are excellent.

                  The experience during my visit was that age of the building can lead to the room size being smaller than average & en suite facilities being inadequate

                • Couple
                  6.6

                  The old feel of the hotel and it's location was convenient for my purposes. The staff were friendly and quite attentive.

                  The breakfast was not included in the steep room charge and the single breakfasts were very expensive. When checking in and out we had to wait a considerable amount of time for the reception staff to appear.

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  We were visiting family nearby and the hotel was very convenient and it was very central to all the places we wanted to see.

                  No nothing to speak of.

                • Couple
                  9.6

                  The old building was a sight :) Parking place was brilliant. Location was good. Room was large and tidy.

                  The 'journey' from reception with luggage to the other end of the hotel was an adventure: steps up, few steps more, walk and steps down. We used on arrival the open fire escape door to get our things in, but had to carry everything through the hotel on departure. The breakfast was way too expensive, should be included in the price.

                • Single
                  2.8

                  Housekeeping was good.

                  I've stayed in other Best Western's and this was a massive disappointment, I would not stay at this hotel again.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and more than adequate room. Parking was easy and location for the town was excellent. Nice 'pub' atmosphere. We stayed overnight to attend a local wedding so can't comment on food etc but we would return.

                  Bath very high sided so would be difficult for anyone with mobility problems. Long way to walk from reception to our room - not a real problem for us but again would be for people with mobility probs as no lift.

                • Single
                  9.4

                  Cleanliness above all, and staff's kindness.

                • Single
                  7.4

                  Room extremely quirky as you would expect in such an old building, fascinating place. Staff were excellent and the food and its presentation were very good. There is someone there who is expert with a sharp knife making any salad a delight to eat!

                  Noisy traffic and the acoustics within the very old walls are challenging!

                • Older travelers
                  5.4

                  One of the assistant chefs went ouit of his way to show us how to find the overspill car park

                  I did not like the fact that very loud music was played until 12 midnight p[reventing us from sleeping

                  8.2

                  Convenience - the reason why I selected this particular hotel

                  Breakfast a muddle on the first morning owing to the wedding taking place that day - we were all shunted into the bar. The toaster was not working properly, suggest you get one similar to those at motorway service stations.

                  9.6

                  Friendliness of the staff & comfort of room.

                  Absolutely nothing my stay was an ordeal.

                  the hanging baskets

                  my wife has a disability and receives disability living allowance hence we required use of the disability parking, however during our stay the general manager had taken up both disability slots by parking across both bays. The receptionist said that they do not police the parking and we would have to park in another slot. A very poor view i believe.We also could not get our room window to stay open and had to prop it open with a book and the toilet cistern took about an hour to fill up as the stop valve appeared to be faulty. The bar also does not sell coca cola only Pepsi which neither of us can drink due to its high sacharin content. The tables in the bar were sticky as if they'd not been cleaned properly. Our view from the room window was of the funeral home and undertakers, nice! Breakfast was also very expensive.the
