We stayed for just one night over the bank holiday, booked at last minute so didn't know what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised. What a lovely place. The landlord was very friendly and the bedroom and bathroom (although not ensuite) were spotlessly clean. We never met the landlady but she cooked a fantastic and filling breakfast. We... More

Fantastic decor, rooms beautiful, clean and comfortable and breakfast was brilliant. You need to experience this even its just for one night. The attention to detail was great....coffin shaped window seat, bats hanging from the bed. I slept like the dead.

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago for 3 nights and had a great time. Have driven past it many times and wondered what it would be like. Was not disappointed! We had the downstairs front room which was doubled glazed to keep out the traffic noise and had a little air conditioner unit near the head of the bed... More

Stayed for one night with my 13 year old daughter, she loved it. I was initially unsure whether to book it as I thought it might be a bit cheesy, however, it was just good fun. The breakfast was really good and the landlord was really nice. We had our own bathroom but it wasnt ensuite.

Stayed 2 nights at the beginning of the month and had an amazing time. The rooms were meticulously clean and well decorated. Although the bathrooms on the ground floor level were not attached to the room it was no problem you still had your own private bathroom with toiletries. They also had a varied range of DVDs & videos to... More

Another pleasant stay at Goth central. Bats and vampires aside it's a clean comfortable and cosy b&b with excellent breakfasts served in the dining dungeon. It's a great place to stay whether Goth or not (unless your bat phobic)
