Meadow Inn & Steakhouse

Contemporary style in an historic location makes the Meadow Inn & Steakhouse a great place to stay when visiting the birthplace of industry.

Knowledgeable staff, superbly decorated rooms and a great restaurant with terrace are the inn's greatest attributes. If you can ignore the nearby power station (although its cooling towers are a sight to behold), then you're in for a relaxing stay.
