Very bad first impressions greeted with a grumpy owner, sat smoking outside didn't know what room to give us - wish he hadn't bothered. Smoking allowed in bedrooms so they still stink of smoke so do your clothes and bags. Stayed 1 night but wish sat nav didn't find the place. Rooms very basic needs severe updating, biscuit crumps all... More

Around 25 of us stayed here last weekend. Rooms were basic but none of us expected anything else. Bar service was excellent. Dave had no problems with keeping the bar open late and serving yourself if he was busy. I missed breakfast both mornings but I heard good things about it. Dave was always up for a laugh as well....

We were a group of 4 girls in town for the weekend. Dave, Julie and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms have everything you need and the location was brilliant. Would definitely recommend and stay again next time I'm in town.
