Absolute dump of a place owner was rude wouldn't let me have an iron because he was busy getting a shower then woke me up crack of dawn to move the car out of a space he had said to park in. A reckon a prison cell would be bigger an my 6ft fella whacked his head off the ceiling... More

You can clearly see they are trying to redecorate and sort this awful place out...but not fast enough! The bed was brand new but let downby the manky shower and the hole in the floor under the carpet so I tripped up! No onsite security and no breakfast so expensive for what it is... dont bother..

The Manager was extremely friendly. However the toilet flush button was missing but this didn't make much difference because the toilet didn't flush! The tiles were broken, the shower cubicle was dirty and the curtains were hanging off the rails! At least the Manager gives quibble-free refunds!

Last minute booking after a previous hotel messed us about. We where greeted by the owner, nice fella who showed us the room before we paid to make sure we were happy with it. Excellent service, room was secure and the ormonde was in an excellent location. All the hotel needs is a bit of a refurbishment.

Well it was a bad day for public transport, we were an hour late for check in and the owner was lovely about it and didn't even charge anything extra for it! He advised he had only had the guest house for five weeks and so was in the middle of a refurbishment, yes the place is dated but he... More

We had booked with Airbnb and when we arrived found that it had changed management. They did not know we were coming. The new manager was very helpful and helped with our luggage and said we were having the best room. The mattress was very lumpy and were quite disappointed with the place. The location is near the city and... More

Really friendly owner - even helped me park my car. We stayed on spec and paid £40 for a double room. The place was spotless and had a retro feel about it with some mod cons, like flat screen TV, thrown in. Check out is a little early at 10 o' clock but for an extra fiver they offered a... More

This looks old fashioned when you arrive, don't let that put you off. The guy at check in is laid back and friendly in a way that would put Hilton etc to shame. The room we had was a bit rough at he edges, a major plan of reconditioning is ongoing so we had to endure a properly working telly... More

For the price we paid (£45 for peek, last moment trip), you really can't complain. Basic and outdated, but clean and tidy. The place could do with a lick of paint and newer furniture. If you are looking for somewhere to just get your head down for the night, that's close to the train station (2min walk away) and close... More

We booked last minute and therefore had little choice so The Ormonde was picked. I wish it hadn't been. Whilst the staff were friendly and helpful the room was terrible. The beds were uncomfortable and squeaky. The bathroom needed to be properly cleaned - there was a lot of scum around. Throughout the room and bathroom there were wet patches... More
