6/10 Good

Nice but tired
The pub is a nice character place from the outside but inside needs some tlc. It's really a good locals boozer with rooms. Can be noisy both later on at night (I stayed on a Monday which seems to be student night). In the morning you get sound's of the city waking up, Garbage lorry at 5am. No breakfast either so don't expect it, but on the plus your right on the town for dining out etc. Wouldn't rule it out but might look elsewhere first.

Very good customer service, I was allocated room No 1 which is a nice big room with 3 windows so good light & fresh air, the room has a very comfortable big bed (& very clean bedding) so I got a great nights sleep, the bathroom is a good size with high quality fittings including a great shower, the room can be accessed without going through the pub so that's a plus too and I was very impressed by their Covid 19 precautions so overall a A ......and I would stay there again !!
