Great value
We had 2 rooms facing West with great views and vaulted ceilings. Rooms were renovated, very clean. One of the rooms heater made some noise that bothered me but otherwise good clean place. Outside looks outdated....but overall the value is there. The food at the drake is not high quality, ate there many times now and seems to be consistently poor, I suggest eating your main meal somewhere else, but the band and the party mood was great.

18 day stay with 3 generations.
We stayed for 18 days and i cannot praise this hotel enough! The Drake provided us with everything we needed for our long stay and provided us with information on the local area and further beyond. The pub is welcoming and warm and the food is delicious! They were experiencing extremely cold weather when we visitied with temps reaching -44 but our room was toasty warm the entire time! We cannot wait to come back, your staff are kind and generous and a credit to the establishment! Thank you for making our holiday special.
