Staff were friendly and bed was comfortable but windows in room covered with spiders webs. Cleaning appears to be done to the minimum. There was an awful smell from the drain of the shower. Breakfast was quite good but evening meal was poor in quality. Cannot recommend this hotel other than for a quick one night stopover,

We arrived to find the bar area like the inside of the Mary Celeste (that's an old deserted ship), and wandered around for a little while until someone appeared. Check-in was nice and smooth, all the info we needed, and a nice... More

Dear Sirs, We sent the email below to email copied below to Central R.com - they have now apologised to us & refunded the deposit we paid them, but advise us that the fault lies with the Horseshoe Inn as they sent confirmation to the Horseshoe Inn on 12th Jan 2014 at 21.29pm of our booking.

We stayed at the hotel for one night whilst in the area for a family event, the area was new to us. Our room was clean and comfortable, the shower room was obviously recently refitted and was very nice with an excellent shower. A request for extra pillows was granted very promptly. In the evening we had a bar snack,... More

Had a great night sleep, staff were very warming and quick to serve. I did not hear the slamming of neighbouring doors which was a great relief, also had a great breakfast to start me of for the day. Thanks guys, I will be using the hotel again in the near future.

Service throughout the hotel is first class you are greeted by very helpful staff and checked in efficiently into your room. The room was fantastic and spotless everything you could possibly need was there. I would definitely stay here again.
