    Arrived on market day - very difficult to park. Staff were initially very helpful, however following day we were told we had missed breakfast as we were one minute late. Nice reception area but rooms were dated and dusty. Wouldn't return again.

    Bear Hotel is well located, comfortable rooms and with a nice bar. City does not have many options, so it's definitely a good choice there. Located in the city center, its close by restaurants and other options

    Unlikely there is anywhere for that length of time but the council car park is 3/400 yards away. Don't know anywhere that you'll be ok other than there.
