Very Good 8.0
Very clean and comfortable in good position
Hotel has recently been refurbished so everything is sparklingly clean. Very comfortable bed and bathroom with separate bath and shower. Continental breakfast for 6 pounds was good. Situated in main shopping area, close to market and bus station. No hairdryer in room but supposed to be available on request according to letter in room "but may have to wait during busy periods" With this in mind I asked for a hairdryer at 2.30pm thinking this would not be a busy period. I was told that none were available but I would be next in line. Still did not have a hairdryer at 6.45pm when I told them it was too late because I had to go out to a show at 7.30. Buskers in street outside were annoying when window open.

Very Good - Great Value for money
Couldn't have been luckier with this, superb location, lovely staff, spotlessly clean and nicely resourced with tea/coffee etc but only one fault, my friend caught his foot on an exposed edge on the shower screen whilst getting in the bath. He could have had a nasty accident. This needs attention from maintenance, other than that this hotel couldn't be faulted in any way at all.
