The web site described this a boutique hotel but if you are looking for small, chic and clean - forget this one. We arrived to find that the clean, well presented exterior in photo was shabby and in need of painting. The interior was dark and gloomy, the carpets in the communal area were heavily stained- filthy. We stayed in... More

The staff / family that run the hotel are the friendliest folk you will ever come across. They are well mannered, generous and very welcoming at all times throughout the stay. They all made it a great experience and one that we hope to repeat again soon. The room we stayed in had good facilities and was very modern and... More

We arrived and there was no parking on site you had to pay for council parking which was £7.50. The outside of the hotel was rotton; not painted and walls had... More

Thank you for your review, even though we feel you have been very critical but that is your opinion, I would just like to add that from your review about the back garden you must of had a back facing room which could of only been either room 5 or 12 both have been recently redecorated so your comment regarding...

Stairs smelt of wet dog. Landlord and family used public bar as living room. Staff/family smoking on doorstep- had to walk around them. Kettle was filthy. On the plus side the beds were very comfy and the hotel was quiet at night. Landlord was helpful and attentive.

We stayed here for one night with family and a small toddler on 1st October 2014. We were greeted with a warm welcome. Location is great, away from the hustle & bustle, but in good walking distance. The notice on the front door read, make it your home, and if felt like we were made to feel welcome, lovely room,... More

Travelling miles, our journey was hampered with traffic & our arrival time wasn't until 1am. We were greeted with such a warm welcome, very quickly checked in & taken to our room. The World Hotel is a family run b&b with beautiful breakfasts cooked quickly to order with friendly conversation/ banter. Our Indian suite was a fair size for 4... More
