Travelling solo whilst in the area for work, I needed a place to stay that offered good value. Sandway House ticked all the boxes: Parking (though tight, you can reserve a spot by calling ahead) Breakfast included Centrally located I couldn't find fault at all. Decor and cleanliness are of a high standard. Breakfast was lovely. The hosts are polite,... More

Upon arriving at Sandway House, we were informed that due to a double booking by Laterooms.com and some mix up with emails, we couldn’t have the double en-suite room we had booked. Instead we would be in a twin room with shared bathroom facilities for the 1st night and would be moved for the following 2 nights. We were dismayed... More

We stayed at the Sandway for a week in August 2014, two adults and two teenaged boys. We stayed in the two twin rooms at the top of the hotel and shared a bathroom. It was great - we each had a bit of privacy and as we are family sharing the bathroom wasn't as a problem at all. The... More

I'm struggling with the wording of this review as it's a small, family run establishment and it's their livelihood, but I do need to be honest! It's very basic and simple which is ok, but no spare electricity outlets and the ones they had were behind a table so I had to scrabble around the floor and unplug other things... More

The room in which I think you stayed was decorated last year and the majority of people like the black and cream colour scheme. All of our beds have matress protectors and also pillow protectors, they are not... More

More suited to stag do or overnight stay for workers ie lorry drivers.Would be well worth paying extra 5pounds through booking agent to enable you to cancel if not satisfied or pay extra five pounds to...
