Absolutely terrible experience! I booked this hotel a month ago through trivago. I knew we would be late due to flights so I rang the hotel and told them we wouldnt arrive till between 12 and 1 that night. She told us that would be no problem and someone would be there to let us in when we'd arrive. We... More

Stopped for a drink here last Saturday and decided to eat. The pub has had a recent makeover and is so different to what it used to be. All of the staff were polite, friendly and very efficient. The food we had was very good and very reasonably priced. The menu was varied and had plenty of choice. We will... More

A cheap and easy place to have some food and drink. Stopped in when i was in the area with work. Staff are polite and the food and drink is cheap. We didn't have much time to explore so not sure where else there is to eat in the area.

Upon arrival I was greeted with a friendly smile and shown to our room. It was basic but clean. There isn't much to say apart from it was cheap and you shouldn't expect too much since it didn't cost that much. The bathroom could do with a bit of a fix up but everything worked and since we were out... More

I stayed in the riverside on a week night for work, after reading terrible reviews about the place I was a little worried about what may lay before me. Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised, the pub below was quiet with not many people in...not enough in fact. I was checked in quickly and shown to my room (14), clean,... More

Stayed for 2 nights, never again. The description of this hotel is very misleading, refurbishment a figure of their imagination. Good location was the only positive thing about it. No breakfast or evening meal although had booked b & b, restaurant was closed and reading reviews looks like had been closed for some time not just prior to our stay... More

The appearance of a third world bomb site greets you as you pull into the car park at the rear of the Hotel (pub). The staff were pleasant enough on arrival but the cash machine was broken. So it is cash on arrival, Why? Because once you see the room you ain't gona want to pay, so check your room... More

This hotel has to be the worst in the world. The check-in process was a nightmare. My room as small, smelly, and very dirty. The lights didn't work properly, the window wouldn't close, and the glass was smashed (with a hole). The bed was very small (small single size) and had hard lumps in the mattress. There was only one... More

Rather weary of writing a review, as I didn’t book or pay for the hotel. As part of a uni exchange program, me and a couple of friends stayed here for two nights. Having initially read the reviews, I didn’t have high hopes. Truth was that it was better than expected, but still hugely disappointing. As a regular ‘budget’-hotel traveller,... More

Polite staff on entry was please with this. Car park looks unsafe and dingy. No card payments, although cash point opposite. Room- hole in window covered by cardboard, sheets and stuff quite clean, walls paper thin! Would'nt let my dog stay there!
