Dismal, grotty decor compliant with much use and neglect. The bed was clean though, unlike the shower room. The "quiet" room that was requested was at the front with ill fitting windows above a busy junction allowing loud traffic noise and swearing into the night. Parking was cramped with kitchen drain overflowing onto access. Won't be back.

old building full of character, i don't think there is an even floor, wall or ceiling anywhere in the main building. room decor was tired but well equipped and comfortable. bar and restaurant areas are atmospheric food is good and the staff pleasant and helpful. enjoyable place to stay, recommended.

Our family of 16 stayed for a two night break over Christmas and could not fault it especially for the price paid. Alison, Craig and team were very attentive to our needs. The food was excellent and served well considering there was 16 of us. Some of us were over the annexe side and some in the main building above... More

We stayed for two nights between Christmas and the new year. The toilet had not been cleaned for (it appeared) some time, there were no means to hang clothes in the bathroom, and one of the cups had not been cleaned.
