contemporary look and feel. Rooms are very clean and quite spacious. En-suite bathroom facilities have also benefited from the recent refurbishment and feature modern appointments.


Updated spaces with contemporary feel.

While the hotel is located in an original and historic coaching inn with a 400 year history, all common spaces such as the bar area, restaurant and lounge areas are modern, with bright furnishings and a contemporary colour palette. Spaces are clean and inviting and there is a wonderful outdoor eating area perfect on summer days.

Negative Reviews


Noisy pub nights.

The rooms located directly above the pub are quite open to the noise coming from either the patrons or the music on certain nights. Guests who need to catch early flights or light sleepers in general should try to book rooms well away from the pub area.


Kitchen closes early.

The hotel kitchen closes at quite an early time at night, making it difficult to get a good meal if arriving late. There are a variety of snacks available at the bar and nearby eateries that are open quite late.


Tight parking.

It is important to note that the free onsite parking is a little bit on the small side and fairly tight, requiring that drivers pay close attention when parking or manoeuvring out of a spot so as not to cause any damage.
