Retuned from the Rivelyn hotel yesterday, stayed in room 115 a nice little twin room...plenty big enough for two of us and our dog. The room was clean, warm and quiet. The bathroom with shower was ok but the water went cold one evening, probably because the hotel was quite full. The beds were comfortable. Tea tray replenished every day...

Stayed here again with my dog after many great stays. Lovely hotel and great staff. Free parking permit for right outside the hotel which was handy, one thing I would say is that we found it abit strange that the sink was in the bedroom because the bathroom was small. Other than that, we enjoyed ourselves.

This place is ok but nothing fancy, so if you just want somewhere to kip then this is ideal as it's cheap and has the basics that you need. The bar is cheap and the dining areas are nice. Rooms are very dated though. Plus in a twin room we only had one cup for the tea / coffee and...

Very pleasantly surprised on our second visit here as the room was large, well decorated and warm, we stayed 2 nights at the end of January and found it great value for money. Parking was by Permit and was only £1.50 for 2 days from reception, breakfast was very good value at £2.95 for continental, the only bad point we...

After finding a good deal on booking.com, I rang up to double check about additional fees for a dog. It was only a fiver for the whole stay unlike all others at £10 a night. Don't expect the hotel to be perfect in the way of decor. I spent many a moment thinking how easy it would be to fix...
