The room tariffs and prices for food are considered to be good value. As this is a JD Wetherspoon hotel, the food is consistent with the other establishments in the chain. Most guests were quite satisfied with the value level here; good for people on a bu

Great character.

Parts of the building date back to the 15th century, giving the hotel a lovely, quirky feel. It is as modern as it could be without losing its character. It’s exciting that this pub is even mentioned in PICKWICK PAPERS, the famous novel by Charles Dickens

Great staff.

The staff here is wonderful, friendly, attentive and ready to go out of their way to ensure the comfort of the guests. “Nothing is too much trouble for them”, guests have been quoted as saying.
