I paid maximum price and my sister paid half of that through a late booking service; both were overpriced for what amounts to an overpriced B&B. The room was dank, smelled of damp with an insidious smell of stale tobacco - probably from the smoking area directly below the room. The bedding wasn't clean and asked for it to be... More

Booked this hotel for a surprise birthday treat for my partner. But it soon became apparent that the website does not reflect the hotel truly today. Not a Molton Brown product in the room at all and certainly not recently refurbished. Staff are friendly but the hotel is in need of whole updating/refurbishment. Tatty decor and furnishings. Very disappointed.

We stayed here on a bed and breakfast basis as I had business to attend in the area. The room we stayed in was clean and adequately furnished, the bed was comfortable and we had an en suite with a bath. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok - just a simple continental breakfast although we had... More

We're fairly local to Browns so occasionally use the restaurant or stop in for coffee on the sofas in the bar area. I thought for Valentines evening it might be fun to have a meal and stay the night. While is was great to escape the kids and not have to drive home after supper, it was really only ok... More

After reading on the "Browns" website "A complimentary, public parking facility is available nearby and reception will be happy to offer you directions" - I wasn't expecting to have to locate street parking a walk away from the hotel! Thankfully I have previous knowledge of the area, and managed to find a space which was free with no time constraints.... More

We wre shown to a small room, it smelt damp,... More

We arrived cold and wet and ready for an argument and then we met a young lady at reception who we think was called Kayleigh. By the time she had welcomed us and showed us to our room I had totally calmed down. How did she do that? The hotel was good the shower was hot wifi worked parking was... More
