Central location with easy access to town centre”

The price, large room, access to town centre

This is not my first stay at the Chequers and I was happy to book in again. I was given a room in the car park, which was quite dark and small. I felt it could be noisy with cars coming in and out. I requested a different room and this was no problem for the hotel. I was shown two others and chose accordingly. The room was large and airy with a sofa and coffee table. The down side was that the towel rail was heated all the time and this made it boiling! I was able to close the bathroom door and open the window but I felt that this was a massive waste of energy and, environmentally, the hotel should definitely address this. The only other problem was that the curtains were 2-3 inches away from the actual window so when it started getting light at 4:30, I woke up. This has been the same in all rooms I have stayed in and something that the hotel could address too. Staff members are friendly and efficient.

Good hotel”

Location, friendly staff, comfortable bed

The hotel is in a good location with very helpful and friendly staff. The bed was very comfortable with spotless sheets and towels. The carpet needed to be replaced but that did not detract too much from the comfort of the room. My dinner in the restaurant was very good.

A pleasant stay”

Location, staff friendliness and effiency

Stayed in a twin room that had all the facilities and amenities required, iron etc, but no fridge. The layout is a bit quirky as it is an old hotel but I couldn't fault the cleanliness or comfort of the room. Free wifi, plenty of sockets and a comfortable bed. Floors were a bit creaky but I was on the second floor so it didn't bother me! Clean fluffy towels and tea coffee making facilities. The bed was comfortable. Ample parking and centrally located.
