We arrived on a Sunday, there was only one member of staff on duty, an eastern European chap who was doing his best to cope with cooking, check-in and bar duties along with cleaning and offering advice. The rooms are tired, cold and very noisy. To be awoken cold, at 3.00am by hammering on the walls, the whole floor got... More

First impression upon arrival was wow this looks like something off This Is England.. 1970s block of council flats. Anywhooo, after entering it didn't get much better. The room was really dated and tired, I felt like I paid far too much money for what I actually got. It looks like somewhere you would stay on a budget but the... More

The hotel at first glance is like something stuck in a 1980's time warp, it's dated but characterful, yes in need of renovation but not with sterile metal and plastic like some of the "lodge" type places, just needs new wallpaper, carpets and repainting. £120 for 2 people for 2 nights B&B in a town center is IMHO very good...

This is a tired hotel. The decor is drab, the public areas not very clean, the heat was full on and oppressive in some of the corridors and bedrooms (including ours) and various promised details (such as wifi) were absent. We had trouble unlocking the door initially; the owner/manager grudgingly came to see what the matter was. He, of course... More

My Partner and I went to wales for a Concert weekend with my Choir "The Solent Male Voice Choir" who were to sing in a couple of venues in the area. We all stayed at the Castle Hotel for the weekend. We were made to feel very welcome there and allocated our rooms quickly and efficiently by the desk staff.My... More

I booked this hotel at short notice. It's very old and in desperate need of repair. The location was easy to find in the town centre but is about 50 metres from a pub which is has loud music and lots of rowdy people. Constant shouting, arguments and general noise and horns from cars. I'm tired and din't feel hopeful... More

Easy to find. Council car park is only £3 pounds for 24 hours and is locked secured at night. They upgraded us to a suite for the same price which was fantastic! Breakfast was ok. Didn't try the bar though. The Main town centre is 2 minutes away. Great location to explore the area. I used this hotel as a... More
