Bar and breakfast full of “bus people “. Big place that seems small. Nice room. But there is no electric outlets near bed

Nice Quaint Place
Considering the price it was worth staying at. About a 10 minute drive from each station different directions and a 10 minute walk into town a good location to be at. I would rather be closer to the city centre in the future since we did not have a car and the weather was terrible but it was a nice traditional British hotel. It is a good place to stay for a night or 2. Apparently they have lots of renovations planned in the future with a resort and spa so I would like to return when that opens. Wifi was terrible though, needs to be improved.

Only downside was no wifi in the room. Bar was fun. Breakfast was fantastic. Just a quick walk into the historic area of town. Very impressive exterior. Take the canal tour!
