Only saw owner twice, when I went for breakfast and when I paid for room. He was nice asked... More

It was the worst place I have ever stayed in, I slept in my clothes, as I could not sleep in the dirty room. The carpets were filthy, there was hair down the plug hole and the toilet was stained and wooden seat swollen and stained. The glasses and side plates were stuck to the table in the breakfast room.... More

The building itself is nice, but definitely TOO DIRTY! The room had a bad smell an there were spots everywhere, even on the blankets. The staff is friendly, but not present at night: the last night some customers were arriving late and nobody came to lock the main entrance, so we slept with the door open!

Got a double bed instead of requested twin in a room you couldn't swing a cat in. Lucky if I got two hours sleep. Extremely hot but with open windows no chance of sleep due to very loud noise of trucks etc on the main road outside. Bathroom toilet had pee stains and shower was a bath with a rubber... More

Firstly they say there is parking, there isn't apart from a public expensive car park. Secondly it is not clean, the toilet was disgusting as not cleaned properly. There was mild on our toast at breakfast and the orange juice had gone off. No bed bugs on this trip but have only just checked out! The owners do not live... More

Being ground floor we had our own little courtyard, which was fine for us. We just wanted a base for the time we were there and it fitted our... More

Stayed here with my Mother weekend before last and will not be repeating the experience! Staff were nice enough and happy to answer questions about the city but the whole place hasn't had any money spent on it in years. Very tired, dusty, unkempt and in a general state of disrepair. On arrival in our room on the top floor... More

Owners are nice enough, chatty and friendly, however they don't live there, and only turn up to cook breakfast, and check you in or out. We had booked here as no where else central had two rooms available as close to the centre as this one. We also booked a parking space, as another reviewer has mentioned there are only... More

We initially booked this guest house as it look like good value in a convenient location - however we now seriously regret our stay!!! Upon arrival there was no owner of staff present at the door so after some investigation we eventually found a list which showed we were in room 5 which we then made our own way up... More
