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

The only positive thing I can say was that the bed was comfortable, but the pillows were not of good quality. There were extension cables running round both sides of the room, one to serve the TV (this one ran round the wash hand basin, death trap or what.) the other for the kettle. There were never enough sachets of... More

made you feel at home for breakfast, had to put the kettle on yourself! opened the loaf of nearly stale bread to go into the useless toaster, the crossiants were so chewy i struggled for even the first bite before i threw it in the bin, the lid was broken on the cereal container so when it came off in...

This B and B is in a convenient position and the beds were clean and fresh. However, the rest of the accommodation we found to be dirty( especially behind the beds) and the standard of the en suite was appalling with the shower head falling off from the wall. We won't be staying here again.
