We stayed for one night and were shocked on entering room. My husband pulled backed duvet to reveal the previous guests hairs in bed, stains, crumbs. So not clean sheets disgusting. Crumbs all over floor, previous guests receipts on unit, bit rubbish in bin, old water drinking bottle thrown and left at side of bed. We went straight out! Didn't... More

I booked through booking.com and when we arrived they had no recollection of our booking, however they luckily had 2 rooms available. The gentleman who showed us round was polite however they did not have any central heating. Our room had a fan heater but it was too noisy to have on whilst we were sleeping and the window's were...

Do not advise staying at this hotel, it's in a great location but as far as the rooms are involved terrible! Showers do not work!! Glass on the floor, no heating! Not that clean! It's was just horrendous! Very poor value for money! I strongly advise the owners to have a good change and sort this out! Until then I... More

Do not stay here! No heat, I froze. Only heat was a small fan heater. Windows had holes in them. There was no cover on the duvet which was dirty. The room, hallway and shared bathroom were also dirty and seemed like a construction site! I was supposed to stay 2 nights but left for the hostel which was cleaner,... More

We were provided with a fan heater, whish we left on while we were out but the electricity had tripped and consequently... More

Such a great location, pity it is let down by its interior. I understand the building is listed, it looks lovely from the outside but inside is a different story. The central heating wasn't working, although there was an electric heater in the bedroom. The decoration is very dated, our "ensuite" room had a very uncomfortable mattress, mildew on the... More

Stayed in a triple room with 2 friends. It was a filthy room, tv and wifi and heating did not work. The springs in all 3 mattresses stuck out and dug into us all night. Bedroom and bathroom both filthy and had not been cleaned adequately. Our bedroom window was only single glazed and had a big hole in one... More

Very basic hotel accommodation. I was in the triple room with friends and the beds were very uncomfortable so if you have a bad back I wouldn't recommend staying here. The bathroom was clean and the shower was great but it was a shared bathroom between all the rooms which didn't bother me and was not a problem as the... More

We stopped here one night having a family room and a single room. The family room that was described as suitable for 2 adults and 2 children when we booked had a double bed and one single bed. I'm not sure how 4 people are supposed to fit in. The bar area downstairs was quite nice and the free parking... More
