My fiancé and me staid here on night. We arrived very early,but the room was ready so we can checked immediately. The staff is very friendly! The room is okay,a little bit old fashioned. I had just one problem in the bathroom,the shower curtain was very very smelly. The breakfast was average. It was totally okay for one night!

The price of this hotel is good however I believe you can find better hotels at a similar price if you shop around. The staff are very polite and helpful and the downstairs looks fairly welcoming. The rooms are however very poor. My ceiling looked like a section needs replacing and it looks as though it had not had a... More

Absolutely horrific stay, horrible stench when you walked in. Draught coming in the window so ended up with a chill, the creeky floorboards and the noise from outside was also ridiculous! After 2 hours sleep, if that, i wanted nothing but a hot shower but the shower worked for all of 2 minutes, And I got burnt all down my... More

I checked in ok, the staff are fine to be honest but the Hotel lets them down. My room had a credit card slot type lock which doesn't work so it... More

Well, I ought to begin by saying that I stay in hotels on average a couple of nights each week. This place is outstandingly bad. Had I not pre-paid for the room, I would have got straight back in the car and found somewhere else. Or slept in the car quite honestly.One drives into a potholed litter strewn car park... More
