If you would like to get an air/water borne disease, and you like freezing, dark, and dirty rooms, then this is the hotel for you! Myself, my sister and my mum stayed in Basil's room. I got a cold during my three-night stay. To be fair, the owner did help us with our luggage, and was generally helpful, and gave... More

LIar .no smell of smoking in the hotel.Liar breakfasts were superb.We only had a small meal while out during the day because we were full up.In fact i commented to my wife that the sausages were no cheapos. The beds were clean and comfortable. It really is about time that TRIPADVISOR verified that these reviewers were genuine.

I think the photos and reviews are well and truly out of date, the decor was not only tired but dirty, ceilings falling down, rooms smelt of smoke, wallpaper peeling, floors sticky with dirt, showers mouldy, the smell of stale fried food everywhere, all surfaces greasy including highchair, breakfast obviously the cheapest bacon and sausages. Staff looked scruffy, no welcome,... More
