Greeted by friendly staff and made to feel welcome. Great location and Free parking permit provided. Shame that the hotel is in need of restoration as the rooms have seen better days. Investment in new towels would be beneficial. Queenies Cupcakery is great!

I love this hotel, the staff are so friendly, the food is amazing and the owner is so helpful. The hotel has stunning views of the Iron Bridge. I have stayed here quite a few times and can't wait to return again very soon.

The Tontine has the best location, right opposite the iron ridge & should be an amazing place to stay, unfortunately it isn't. It is in major need of renovation and a deep clean & tidy wouldn't go amiss, Christmas decs still hanging off the lights in the breakfast room. Dirty windows hidden behind dirty nets & curtains. Having said that... More

This hotel is right on the iron bridge, with great views from the front windows; which makes it extra sad that it is not better maintained. The whole place is just worn out, while it could be so much nicer! Some points that need addressing: - overall decor, tired and dirty walls and carpets, bathrooms worn out -there were two... More

Had a great night at the Tontine, only booked the one night but would definitely go back! The staff were great, very friendly and welcoming. My only negative is that it could do with a bit of a deep clean and overhaul. But i tell you something i had one of the best night sleep i have ever had there.

a brilliant hotel, with very accomodating, friendly and welcoming staff. the only criticism if you can call it a criticism is that some of the decor is in need of renewing, however this in no way affects our opinion of the hotel and the excellent rating is well deserved. would definitely stay again and have already reccommended to other people.

We stayed here for a long weekend in December, must say the owner was very welcoming when we arrived and showed us to our room. During our stay we were well looked after by the staff and even stayed up having a few drinks with them one night, they we are very polite and made us laugh with their jovial... More

When you book in for Bed and Breakfast the 2 things that you expect are bed AND breakfast. Imagine our shock to find at 9:00am on New Year’s morning that they have decided that they cant be asked to get out of bed and cook breakfast. Never mind they say, we will refund you £6 (£6!!!) for the breakfasts you... More

tontine1, Owner at The Tontine Hotel, responded to this review

Just had to reply to this one. If you are the guests i am thinking o,f you were informed by email that there were no breakfasts on New years day. Everyone was. Which gave you ample time to decide whether you wanted to stay here or not. I will explain the situation again as it obviously fell on deaf ears.... More
