I paid £39 for a single room with breakfast. This is a good deal but the normal rate is higher. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is a pool but I didn't use it so cannot comment on what it's like. I had room 6 which is actually a twin. The window looks inwards to a flat roof and a... More

We booked a weekend here - they accepted our deposit and then emailed to inform us that the price was twice what we expected. When I referred them to my confirmation email, they just said that the price was wrong. Needless to say our weekend is cancelled and we are going somewhere else.

Our room 26 was ideal and well worth the money although the bed was softer than i would normally use. I was concerned about the peeling ceiling paper and the... More
