I booked this B&B for a friends birthday (2 nights) and I was so embarrassed. Although I appreciate their website stated loud music, it should state incredibly loud music, so much so the room "vibrates" and you CANNOT sleep until it stops, 3am!! The room (No:1) had wall paper falling off in three places, went to open a drawer and... More

I have stayed at the Castle B&B for one night on a Thursday. At around 10pm, the music started to play and it was simply impossible to sleep as the entire room was vibrating. Around midnight, I decided to leave the place and check into a different hotel. The owner only offered a 50% refund, which I declined because I... More

Chosen for central location. Primitive conditions - not even a basin in the room. Downstairs to the bathroom, with evidence of condensation and mould growth. Toilet and basin were at least clean, not so the bath - plug hole full of matted hair. One of the beds was not made up on arrival - the manager was very apologetic and... More

I would never stay here again. It was awful. The were no rooms with en suite bathrooms and you have to stand outside of bathroom in the morning and wait for the people inside to finish their business. Even after couple of people bathtub and the floor was dirty and full of hair. Was disgusting!!! Totally not worth of money... More

Hi Sergey, We do advertise that our bathroom facilities are shared. Our bathrooms facilities are being fully refurbished in November 2015. Our staff do work hard to keep the bathrooms clean at all times. During busy periods such as the mornings a member of staff checks the bathrooms hourly. As a direct result of your feedback, in future there will... More

The location of the b&b is perfect! Our room was really well equipped, lots of toiletries, iron, fan and tea and coffee. Decoration is awful! Lots of mould and wall paper hanging off. The beds were comfy and clean though. Staff were really helpful. Not sure that I'd stay here again because of the shared bathroom

I would never stay here again. It was awful. Firstly, it's my fault I didn't realise there are no rooms with en suite bathrooms - it's all shared bathroom so that started the stay off terribly. Second, our room on the 2nd floor was right above the Castle restaurant/club that has a DJ playing from 10pm until 3am on the... More

Thanks for your feedback. We do advertise shared bathroom facilities and DJ's playing music on Friday & Saturday nights. During check-in we also inform all customers staying with us over a Friday and or Saturday that we have DJ's on until 3AM. We are a city centre location so there will be noise outside as we are on the main... More

As the instructions say its above a lively bar and you wont get any sleep. Bar customers shout in the street (presumably smokers), its a busy road so partyers keep going past until 4am then the buses and vans start at 6am. If you don't need sleep its fine, but if you do don't waste £90. Pity the staff are... More

Four friends and I stayed in a family room at the Castle for a two day reunion back in the city we graduated from. We all read the reviews for this place and had to say we were suprised. Instead of a terrible, terd festered hotel we found that it wasn't so bad for the price. The room was clean... More
