Our Stay in the sydney arms was ok, and fine for the one night, but for the amount that we paid i would expect a better level. We were only expecting it to be basic as in a pub, but there was no towels in our room, no teabags etc with our kettle and no bulb in our bedside lamp. Saying that tho, the staff were apologetic and friendly and the bed was comfy. nice breakfast inn he morning, but I've stayed in better places for less money. But would probably return just because of its convenience to the hospital.

A good overnight stop between Steam Fair and Weymouth. Hotel under new management so lacking a few things like hairdryer and shower gel. Breakfast was freshly cooked and good. Car parking space very limited

We informed the hotel of our late arrival, because of very limited parking they saved us a parking space. We found the room clean and the bed very comfortable The staff were very friendly and helpful A nice touch, the toast at breakfast was put on a hot plate Can milk be included with the tea and coffee in the room, only cream was available which is not very good in tea
