    Expectations exceeded at The Bear. For the rates we were paying for a triple room didn't expect to get so much bang for our buck. Great night's sleep in a very nice room with good facilities and a lovely breakfast.

    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.
