We stayed here for one night prior to an event and had to stay again for one night at the end. Friendly owner but very dated accommodation. The beds were very strange with soft mattesses surrounded with hardboard which caught your legs in the night. Towels were clean but stained and the wiring left something to be desired. Difficult to... More

Dont waste your time and money here! Its disgusting!

He told me the hotel will give me a 24 hour pass charged at £1.00, They charged £2.00. We got there at... More

After finally finding the correct door along narrow corridoors and unlit, unsafe staircases we were greeted with a completely dated and filthy room. The toilet leaked, floors were sticky and the bathroom was full of dust and mould. Highlights included a lovely orange bathroom suite the same hue as David Dickinson's face and a tasteful Harry Potter bin (squashed). There... More

Stayed here last weekend,and fell into the old favourite tourist trap and paid the balance of the bill without seeing the room first.It was very dated even though I think it had been recently redecorated.The carpet was heavily stained,the bathroom was circa 1950 with a nasty plastic contraption on the bath taps to turn them into a shower of sorts.Even...

This hotel looks and is tired and dated. We only needed a two night stay while day tripping to France but never again. Luckily my other half is a plumber and had a screwdriver in the car. This enabled necessary shower repairs just to get hot water at more than a dribble, and to enable it to fall on you... More

I think some of the other reviews may be a little unfair, when considering how reasonable the price is. We stayed here for 2 nights over the May Bank holiday weekend and managed to secure a triple room for £45 per night which wasn't bad considering the nearest Premier Inn's were charging over £130 per night! When we arrived we... More

The bedding was clean, the rest disgusting. A shame because the building could be beautiful. Stained curtains, dirty tea and coffee tray, carpets needed cleaning. Stairs to second floor difficult to negotiate with suitcase, lift only went to first floor!? Breakfast extra @ £7/ person, we declined. If beds weren't clean, we wouldn't of stayed, but was 10.30pm after driving... More

Wanted a cheap hotel for a bed only, the Windsor Hotel did offer this. Plus points the beds were clean and comfortable, with duvets rather than sheets, blankets. Downsides we room was very shabby, in fact looked like something out of the 1960's, bathroom was tired, with the shower comprising of a shower head fitting to the taps, pressure was... More
