On a positive side, they offered inclusive carpark and breakfast. It is not a 15 minute walk to the centre of town. It is however near a bus stop. Wifi worked for us. It is dated, it is not welcoming and chatty. It is a business selling rooms. We got a quad for the family and it served its purpose.... More

Being a coach driver I get to stay in some horrible places. This in my 9 years in the industry is by far the worst accommodation I have had the misfortune to have to endure the nights ahead!!! Dirty, Dirty, Dirty!!! Horrible place. Myself and another driver paid £240 for three nights in a twin room. We were greeted by... More

This is categorically the worst place i have ever stayed. Noisy, uncomfortable with lots of intimidating signs everywhere. Its own descriptions and inaccurate and misleading. Also the worst breakfast I have ever had. Avoid at all costs.

1. We arrived on Saturday afternoon to be greeted with a sign on the front door (which we later realised was a permanent fixture) that "I have gone to lunch. If any problems call me on ---mobile no." This sign would alternate with "I have gone out to dinner..." 2. The wifi did not work in our room (we were... More

I have done a fair bit of travelling, both personally and professionally and this is, by far the worst place I have ever stayed in. It's so bad I don't even know where tl start. Stayed in room 1 which looks as if it was about to fall apart any minute. Structural damage, crack, mold, leaking toilet, not enough hot... More

I looked for a twin room rather late so I didn't have a lot of choice - I was grateful just to get a room. Seems I was lucky with the parking - I managed to get into one of the two spaces at the front. Saturday night someone else took the space so had to park on a side... More

I made the mistake of not looking around at the reviews before booking here and the price of the room vs other accommodation in the area regrettably won me over. But at £45 for the night, I booked online and asked to check in at 8am; it was only when I received email confirmation of my booking and called to... More

Stayed here for one night, paying £95 for a family room (group of friends). The room was cramped, the bathroom tiny and the decor in the room and the whole place was (as other reviewers have said) run down to the point of neglect - it did not feel as if anyone cares much about the place. A shame, as... More
