Wonderful
Our total stay
I don’t get best western reward points when finding accommodation at cheaper rate through booking.com Although the room we were in was big and spacious, it had no coat hangers on wall for wet coats or damp bath towels

Very Poor
Extremely noisy late at night and early morning, absolutely no consideration for people still sleeping. Bar food extremely poor quality...chips soggy perhaps reheated! looked like the rest of the food had been sitting in dishes for most of the day. Bartender was totally indifferent to our complaint. Breakfast wasn't much better. Don't waste your money staying here.

Disappointing
The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was lovely.
We needed an accessible room for my disabled father. Despite requiring a room with walk in shower we were given one with a bath, there was a twin room with walk in shower but it was upstairs and there’s no lift. To be able to get to our room with a wheelchair from the restaurant or reception we had to go outside (in the rain) and go in a rear entrance. Also our room had the bathroom up a corridor which was not easy to navigate with the wheelchair and quite a walk with 2 sticks, so not easy at all. We chose this hotel over another one because they had assured us we could get a twin room with a walk in shower, but this was not the case. This was disappointing and frustrating as every movement within the room and the hotel was not easy and caused my father physical distress. It’s a lovely hotel if none of your party are disabled, but I know my father will not want to come back.

All of it! Nice staff, great breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms. Taxi wasn’t to expensive to the centre. A decent walk but plenty of pubs along the way. Would recommend and book again.
Nothing!

It was a good location and also free car park The bathrooms in both rooms seemed to have had a makeover in the last couple of years.
We got room 214 which was fine except when we went to use the iPad. Next to no WiFi. Not any good when you had to work, so we got moved to 226. The room was large and our iPad initially worked when we logged on but it intermittently froze quite a few times, very frustrating! We could not get BBC 1 or 2 at all. Just froze all the time, so we mentioned to reception in the morning and the lady said she would get it looked at, but unfortunately when we came back to our room after being out for hours there was no difference. We definitely would not stay here again, because of the lack of WiFi and not a decent tv reception. The staff were all friendly.

View from the room was lovely and generally of a great standard
Only criticism is that the orange juice at breakfast had either been watered down or mix not strong enough

Very clean, warm and comfortable. Super-friendly and attentive staff. Function meal was good value, well served and very tasty. A pleasure to stay. Standard of decor and fittings very high.
The guest WiFi was broken but I only found out when I asked at Reception and no alternative login was offered. Room was lacking towels on arrival but they appeared very quickly.
