The rooms themselves were alright. But the staff and the restaurant let's this place down. Staff are grumpy and unwilling to go the extra mile. Not sure why but we kept getting locked out at all times of day (no key provided for communal door). Worst experience was dinner. Had to wait an hour and a half for our food.... More

It's a lovely place but disappointed with the service. We found staff over powering and don't like to deviate from change. We had two rooms one for my family of five and one for our friends over from Australia. Although breakfast is 8-9:30am we had to inform of a time, really difficult when you are enjoying a relax family and... More

Service left much to be desired. Damp, cold room, cracked sink, window frame covered in mildew, curtain falling down and massive hole in the ceiling artex. Staff not overly friendly. The place itself could be lovely with a bit of attention, but I won't be returning.

My husband and I stayed for three nights on a Groupon b&b deal with two course dinner & wine on the first night and overall was good value for money. On arrival we went to the bar where four locals were having a drink. The person who I now know was the owner gave me a curt reply when I... More

This potentially could be a great hotel, but needs a bit of TLC. Bedrooms are adequate for needs, a bit small but what you would expect in an old building. The best part is the breakfasts, very well cooked. The worse part is the initial greeting from front of house, we felt that we were in the way of the... More

(I know as I am in the industry myself). After seeing two other tables ( that arrived after us ) get served before us I... More

All I will say is that we will not be recommending this establishment. The room was in need of updating, and a little shabby looking. The toilet did not work properly and needed several attempts before clearing away. In the end we decided that this was not a place we wished to stay the 3 nights we had bought via... More
