In my opinion this accommodation was slightly overpriced for various reasons. Staff was not very welcoming, pure business. I saw him only when we checked in and paid. Never again. Towels were changed only when we explicitly asked for it (after 3 days!), no shampoo or shower gel, only one tiny soap bar. The bathroom looked very worn out. It... More

This was overpriced for not great accomodation. The owner was nice and the location is ok, but the room was poor. It was grubby (hand print on the wall, gaffer tape with Do Not Use in ballpoint pen over the soap dispenser, no teaspoons to stir tea, wonky mirror ), and not clean ... There were crumbs of food from... More

When I booked this b&b I was expecting something pretty basic and that's what I got. My room was clean, though a bit small and the cleanliness of the bathroom was to an acceptable standard. I have two issues which ruined what would have been an acceptable stay:- the wifi connection was poor and at times nonexistent, which is no... More

Pricy for the poor standard the gest house provides. It's completely unnecessary to charge 5 £ to guests who check in after 8 pm after thei've emailed about the arriving time! The wifi signal was poor in every room of the guest house, but the TV switched itself on (no, I did not have the remote in my bed!) twice... More

I dont like being critical but feel i have to be in this case. First of all there was a couple of positives. The beds were clean and comfortable and the female member of staff on site was lovely. This guest house is extremely dated, the curtains weren't completely hanging up and they didn't meet in the middle , had... More

When I arrived at the door there was no doorbell. Everything was dark and there was no one to greet me. I had to call a certain telephone number, but it didn't work. Even though I did not have access to the Internet I had to use it to find an other number I could call. The lady who picked... More

We did not have any expectations and were relocated here when our booked accommodation sprang a leak of some sort. Maybe that is why we found it strange that so many people have rated it "terrible". As a family, we've stayed in backpackers and found them adequate to our needs. So, if you're on a budget and looking for basic... More

What an experience! Four if us stayed here on a work trip. All of the rooms were appalling. I had a twin at the top of the house. The carpets were filthy, the room freezing. The en-suit a joke! It was a plastic pod in the corner of the room that you had to step up into, which wobbled when... More

I am touring Britain and found this hotel on the internet. I arrived to find nobody available to let me in. I called the number that was on a piece of paper stuck to the door and the owner said he was having lunch and to let myself in. He gave me the code to the front door and said... More
