I would have thought that an establishment with Marco Pierre Whites Name on it would have been a lot better. On arrival the only food they had was from the main menu, so no bar snacks or light bites, the bar staff had to recommend another pub down the road. Surely they're missing a trick there. Couldn't get into room... More

Spent one night here for my husband's birthday - curtesy of Travelzoo. I must admit I was a bit wary after reading so many negative reviews....however what a great place. The staff were amazing. They were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The bar is brilliant - what great decor - I especially loved the crows on the... More

As both a regular user and contributor of T.A as well as fan of travel zoo deals , it was with some trepidation that we arrived over the weekend for my husbands birthday, having read a lot of the recent reviews.. The £99 DBB was a great deal but we still had certain expectations & I'm glad to say overall... More

Stayed at the Canarvon arms with the travelzoo deal! Pleased we hadn't visited the hotel & paid full price as we would have been disappointed! The staff are great and seem to have a great team spirit... So that's the best thing! Very over the top with the stuffed animals in bar area! Dark green & purple hallways making it... More

We had an overnight stay here, curtesy of a Travelzoo voucher (£99 for double room and 3 course meal for two). I was slightly worried after reading previous reviews but needn't have been. We had a lovely meal which was only marred when I tipped a glass of red wine over my over half - accidentally! The staff mopped up... More

PROS: Unusual decor in dark, cosy bar and dining room, good quality produce used in the meals, and good value meal CONS: Shower broken, bathroom really small, not good for those with mobility issues. OVERALL: Good value when bought as a £99 Travelzoo deal. Room ok for one night, but wouldn't want an extended stay here. Right. I booked a... More

Like many other reviewers we booked a Dinner, Bed & Breakfast deal via Travelzoo. Would NOT recommend anyone else does the same. On arrival we were shown to our room, had to walk outside to get there - lucky it wasn't raining! Room ws "compact" to say the least! The bed was extremely "springy" any movement made "echoed" for seconds... More

Met a friend here for lunch. On entering the dining room there was a transistor radio blaring on the windowsill! I switched it off. Menu not at all what it used to be. Very limited choice so ended up starting with a selection of cold meats brought on a slab of wood with a chunk of pate stuck on the... More

Having read some of the reviews we were not sure what to expect. My conclusion is that some of the reviewers expect 5 stars at 2 star prices ! We thought it was excellent value on our TravelZoo deal of room,glass of Prosseco, dinner and breakfast for not much more than a room at a Travel Lodge. Good points -... More

We arranged to meet our friends here to stay the night with a Travel zoo experience. We have taken many breaks with Travel zoo and had some wonderful times and have come to expect a certain standard for the money. But oh dear as we arrived there was confusion as to who would greet us. We were taken to our... More
