The hotel was as I expected- very basic and small, but it was also clean and the bed was comfortable. My issue wasn't with the hotel as such, it was the parking. I was told to park my car overnight on a road opposite, however around 3am we were rudely woken by a drunken gang. We later went to our... More

It's what is is, budget accommodation. Clean and comfortable with an en-suite room, TV and hairdryer. Good price with breakfast included Handy location, positioned opposite a shop and very close to the station. Was a bit noisy with the traffic for rooms facing the road as windows arn't double glazed.

I don't know when the photo was taken mine is a more up to date one. We knew it would be an interesting stay when we were met by the owner and checked in on the pavement !! The door is opened by a key pad which we later found it very temperamental and didn't work most of the time... More

On arrival met with very unfriendly staff, and the whole house smells of damp. I had special request when I booked the "room" but nobody contacted me, that my request is not possible. I realized it when we arrived. I was very upset. It was the smallest "room" and "bathroom" I've ever seen. Had to put everything on beds. Had... More

Upon Arrival Arrived within the time given to us, however the door bell wasn't working. Tried knocking, tried the kitchen/cafe next door but nothing for about 10-15mins. It had been a long drive there so you can only imagine how inconvenient this was. Luckily someone else was leaving the 'hotel', so the door was opened for us from the inside,... More

As I write this, it is 03:24am... I have slept for around 20 minutes in total. The building is hideous, the room is very small and smells of damp and will be offensive to those blessed with a sense of smell, the traffic might as well be driving through the room, that is how sound proof the window is. I... More

Looks awfull from the outside. It has had a lick of paint on the inside, but that looks to hide a multitude of sins. I've been scratching since I got in to bed. The room smells. Its small rooms would be an exaggeration. Tiny would be better. Window doesn't close so have noise all night. Blind is ill fitting and... More

Having read the reviews, I was expecting something akin to a drug addled prison. This feeling was amplified as soon as we rolled up and saw the outside!! I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by the aroma of drying paint, fairly clean decor throughout and near, ensuite bedrooms. However, they're nothing to write home about. Upon arrival, the corridor... More

The whole place smelt damp, the windows are so thin the sound of passing cars was so loud all night. The bathroom smelt worse than the bedroom and was also kept up by the person in the room next door using the bathroom as the walls really are that thin. Wifi didn't work either. Unfortunately i didn't read the reviews... More
