I was in a group of 6 staying in a mix of double and twin rooms. We were all pleasantly surprised by our stay at the Bedford. A rate of less than £20 pppn for bed and breakfast, with the bonus of parking and the pool was excellent. It's true that the rooms are a little dated, but they are... More

For the price I wasn't expecting The Hilton. But what I did expect was cleanliness and a half decent room. Our room was terrible and really grotty. The roof "tiles" we're yellow with filth. The wall under the dressing table was filthy with drips of brown stuff running down the wall. The toilet was in one tiny room and the... More

Like another person said, If you want a 5 star hotel go pay 5 star prices. £25 per night B+B in a good quiet location, with clean rooms, heated swimming pool, polite staff, and an excellent choice for breakfast is an absolute bargain in my eyes. Now you may ask why im only giving them 5 stars? and yes your... More
