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.

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

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

Booked bed and breakfast for one night only. The staff are very friendly and welcoming but the hotel interior is very run down and needs a good deep clean and complete overhaul. The bedroom was lovely apart from freezing cold until the heating came on in the evening. I had an excellent nights sleep however, I would describe the Tontine... More

Great location, clean rooms and friendly staff. Certainly met our needs for a night stay in a pretty area. Wifi very poor, only one spot in the corner of the resturant. Breakfast was good. Beautiful building from the outside, from the inside just a bit run down and shame its a poor impression in the foyer area due to stacked... More
