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

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

Where do I start.... No parking facilities. Room is not very clean. Toilet seat won't stay up. OK if you are a lady I suppose. No cold water from tap in basin. Turn it on and a trickle comes out. Bed is a nasty cheap double with a hardwood type box base. I could hear occupants from above and to... More

We were moved to this hotel as its sister hotel didn't have hot water or heating. We checked in at The Castle at 10.45pm on a Saturday night, our room on 3rd floor was more tired than we were! Drab, and a complete mismatch of everything you could think of, but hey, it was only cheap....and then we found that... More
