Stayed here with family in the family room. Room was standard, service was less than standard and to top it off after we left I realised that I had left one of my shoes in the room... I call the next day and I am casually & extremely rudely advised that 'it has been thrown in the bin'. Great service.

Made me laugh reading the previous post as it summed up completely the scamming owner... We arrived at 4pm with tickets to the races starting early evening. On arrival there was no sign of the owner! When he did arrive, we could sense before we even said our name that our name wasn't down! We too had a valid booking... More

we had a validated reservation with booking.com. Arrived about 3.30 thinking at least we were not trying to get in the room early. Greeted with no where to park and an offhand flustered very not welcome approach from the owner. He was equally treating a young couple who had arrived at the same time the same way who were also...

On arrival our rooms weren't ready, but the owner( Arthur) did his best to sort out 6 rooms within 30 mins. The room we had wasn't particularly large and the en-suite was tiny approx 2 inches knee space when sat on loo. The beds however were really comfy and had plenty of covers and pillows. Nice sized mug on hospitality... More

We like most of the other reviewers had a bit of a frosty reception on arrival, which was about 20:40 in the evening. I just put it down to the owner being tired and took it with a pinch of salt. The room was good, comfy bed, TV, tea/coffee making facilities. Good ensuite. The breakfast is very good a lot... More

We stayed on Saturday 4/7 as a group of 3 couples, the owner Arthur was somewhat intimidating as we arrived, said no matter how big and ugly anyone was he wouldn't have booze or food in the rooms, one of our party was a six foot gentle giant covered in tattoos ;) ........ the next morning however he was a...

The owner was extremely helpful, he couldnt do enough for us from the time we got there to the time we left. The bedroom was lovely, very clean and we had everything we needed. Breakfast service was very good, the lady was lovely who served us too. Can't rate the place highly enough and for the price it really really... More

After nearly six hours of driving my daughter and I did not receive a very warm welcome. I was asked to settle the bill immediately and wasn't offered the opportunity to purchase a drink or something to eat. We dropped our bags off in the room and then walked into town for dinner. When we went to our room later... More

Avoid at all costs - have travelled all aound the world and the 'welcome' (confrontation!) I received when attempting to make a booking for one night was by far the most unwelcoming introduction to any accommodation I have set foot in. Read the reviews - it is clearly not everyone's experience of the place, but why take the risk?
