This is a quite interesting building, originally having been the Hydrotherapy Establishment. Right, let's get the obvious bit out of the way - yes, the decor is a bit dated and the carpets are a bit threadbare in places : but this is not a place that claims to be a 5 star hotel. I stayed here as I needed... More

Lovely old building with great facilities. Decor a little dated but in a quirky way it's good. Loved the facilities and where else can you get a late night 12" pizza for just £4.50 with a San Miguel on tap as well!!

I know people said this hotel is dated, but what do you want for your money? If you have young children it is ideal. The swimming pool is a decent size and the games room is a nice touch. 2 table tennis tables (free), game of Pool 50p, and table football. The lounge/bar area is nice and snug. This is... More

The hotel is like a rabbit warren and can be difficult to find your room even when using the signage. The games room and swimming pool were real positives as was the billiards room and small bar area. The reception staff were generally friendly and were happy to help, however the waitress forgot to bring/put the order in for our... More

This was fantastic for what we needed. Family friendly, dog friendly perfect location. A bit like going back to 70's with decor, but well equipped and very clean. Great value for money, fantastic games and snooker room.

I have been to Green Gables before with my wheelchair and refused to go back unless I had a bedroom in which I could manoeuvre my wheelchair. I did phone up this time and explained my needs so I was given a family room (actually 2 adjoining rooms with beds for 5 people). However no other effort had been made... More

We stayed here, once we eventually found it at the end of a narrow street and managed to squeeze into the last tiny carpark. Needs an upgrade. Light switches hard to understand. Wifi only really available in main hallway. Breakfast was pretty good, with lots of staff. Nice to have the swimming pool. Good accommodation for a sports group who... More

We stayed at Green Gables as a college fieldwork base - and have done so for 5 years now. The hotel is more than fine for that purpose. The rooms are warm, clean and all now have TVs and showers which is a bonus. The food is generally good - hot, filling and varied and it's always service with a... More
