We stayed two nights in The Vestry, and to say pleasantly surprised is an understatement. First, we were warmly welcomed by Angela (my apologies if incorrect, I should have written it down). Our room was HUGE, and very nicely appointed. The bathroom as well was very large and was ultra modern but had a 1920's decor down to the black...

We booked a night at the vestry spontaneously the same day we were going to stay and had a great time. Such good value for money and a great central location. Parking was also free overnight. The room was comfortable and well equipped. In the evening we could hear the music playing in the pub from our room as they...

Stayed here for two nights for a much needed short break. Our room was huge, clean and comfortable, we even had a spa bath, plenty of tea and coffee provided, hairdryer, heater and a decent tv and the bed was clean and comfortable. The hotel doesn't do evening meals but being located close to so many restaurants and eateries to...

There are times that all you need is a comfy bed and good shower. A good breakfast is a bonus. The Vestry is exactly that. It isn't a full on luxury hotel, but a simple place that fits a need. I found the staff very helpful, and the room comfortable, but the best bit was the breakfast which was great....

The vestry web site suggests a warming hotel with live music good food and roaring fireplaces. On arrival the first thing noticed was the sticky floor throughout the bar and reception area suggesting plenty of spilt beer. The young lady that welcomed us was very helpful showing us to our room. We attempted to order food and was advised they...

Dear Stephanie. You were made aware that the Vestry cleaner had suffered a bereavement and staff pulled together to make the breakfast area ready. You were also made aware before your stay that we are a lively bar with a late licence until 2 a.m. and you were given the option to cancel if this was not suitable to you....
