This hotel has so much potential as it is a large, traditional build in a prominent and central location. My room had a sagging bed, holes in the carpet and a very tired bathroom. Some recent effort had been made with the decor of the walls and curtains, but it is futile when everything else is so poor. It was... More

There's not a lot to say. It's a bit grotty... The staff are friendly and the location is perfect but the rooms are tired, not all that clean, we had a kettle but no cups.. It's a shame you are forced to stay here if you come to Rammy as there are only a couple of hotels in the town... More

Attended a wedding here. Function room very nice, good size. Outside catering. Bar service good. However, this is all upstairs in the function area. Take the steep stairs down to the lower bar and it is a different story. Very difficult to get a cup of coffee. Locals making the music player their own along with volume choice. Better selection...

Thankfully when I visited i wasn't spending too much time in the Hotel. I left my bags, went to watch the Cricket then arrived back at my room at 23:00. So i didn't notice the flaking Artex on the ceiling, or the dirty carpet. Nor did i try the shower. What I did notice, though was the noise from the... More

The pub has so much potential it's such a shame it's ran by a sour faced trout. I have yet to see her smile after visiting this pub for drinks on a few occasions. I have seen her inflict violence and customers and speak to them like dirt. She needs bringing down a peg or two as she seems to... More

Stayed there for a weekend and I was not impressed, arrived only to have no one at the reception, then walked to the bar to ask someone to then wait even longer, finally checked into the room which my double bed only just fit into. I had to keep the shower door open as it was too small even for... More

Having seen this review and work done by Alexxi pollitzì to improve the business, i was sorry to experience a poor response. The bedroom was, clean, bed clean and comfortable. Breakfast ok. The young staff there work so hard to make a go of it. Management could improve and and be a lot more visible, and welcoming. Sorry to say... More

Went in for a drink with friends. The guy outside said welcome to the madhouse.. Went in, it was like walking into a cave, no lights on apart from behind the bar. Dark and dingey!.. We order a round of drinks. The pub was full of kids, shouting etc.. We left our drinks and left the pub.

Only heard that this program was on The Hotel Inspector program when I got into work and someone asked me why I looked so knackered, explained I stayed here and all was revealed. I can't complain with the initial welcome by the hotel manager she opened the side door when I rang through and I squeezed in. Hotel smells a... More

I didn't realise that the hotel had been on the Hotel Inspector program, however it seems that the improvements are working. The room was fresh and the bedding lovely and clean, also the bathroom was spotless with lots of hot water. There needs to be a bit of maintenance as the tiled floor was wonky and there were holes in... More
