I've given this place one star, but only because it's the only option open to me. I can honestly say this is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The whole place smells of damp and is very dirty. I stayed in Room 5 which was extremely basic. Spent two nights there being severely bitten on my hands and feet... More

The Hero of Aliwal was a last minute choice for us us our accommodation fell through elsewhere. We called ahead first of all to check availability & to to discuss our requirements. Don't get me wrong, we're not a fussy bunch, just wanted them to be aware that we were coming with a two year old & not everyone likes... More

Absolutely awful B and B. Shared bathroom was disgusting, mouldy, dirty toilet, wet towels on the floor all night., wash basin filthy. Couldn't face cleaning my teeth in there, as it was so bad. My room had a shower with the sign "please do not urinate in the shower, it is not pleasant for the next guest." This may be,... More

I have stayed at the Hero a number of times now and from the first time felt a warm and friendly welcome. Although some of the rooms are in need of a little attention, they are clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are indeed wonderful and you can eat as much or as little as you like all freshly cooked by... More

Stayed here for the Whittlesey Strawbear weekend. Had a nice, clean, basic en suite room. Very reasonably priced. We are veggie so didn't take advantage of the large cooked breakfasts which appeared very generous. Chef was happy to make us what we wanted to accommodate unusual diet (veggie gluten free - took my own bread). Friendly staff. It was nice... More
