    The choice of real ale in the bar.

    Booked.net advertised it as free parking. Actually they just suggested where you could park nearby. The wifi kept going wrong.

    The service was friendly and efficient, the evening meal was piping hot,promptly served and tasty. The beer was excellent!

    It is a little knocked about a bit but seeing its age this is to be expected. It was clean so all was well.

    As someone looking to explore the south west by train and for the price the location , it was a superb stay!

    If you are coming by car , finding parking at a reasonable price proved to be a challenge!

    Fantastic bar with a good range of beers, local and from further afield. Very convenient for station (well it would be, being a station hotel).

    The decor in the rooms is a little tired. It is a nuisance having the handbasin in the room rather than in the bathrom.

    Price and location; and I expected more noise during the night then it actually was

    there are different things to fix - like the door to the bathroom, which does not open properly; or the tube of the shower, which was partly broken

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Staff very helpful and friendly. Hotel bar exceedingly good, quality of beer and service outstanding.

    Rooms in need of refurbishment - bathrooms tired and beds need new mattresses. No parking facilities and this is not made clear when booking.
