Very impressive house a little outdated in need of a bit of decoration. The mattress was so hard had trouble sleeping. Breakfast was nice and even though we had booked a double RM we was put in a family room which was very spacious. The cleaner needs to check closely too as found cigarette filters behind the table in the... More

We are most upset that our visitors were not comfortable, as this is most important to us. We would have been only too willing to rectify the problem of the matress if it had been brought to our attention during their visit. The lounge is always unlocked and available for drinks etc. and it is our pleasure to assist with... More

Very confused at these comments. We genuinly try to make all our guests welcome. Rooms are allocated according to needs no-one is shoved anywere. This is a victorian building and has a very large front door. All our rooms have modern en-suites, we do not have shared bathrooms. This Family Hotel some times has a childs toy here and there,...

On arrival first impression was not good, the building looks like it needs a refresh as it doesn't look very inviting. By the time I parked the car and looked round I wondered what I was walking in to, if it hadn't been paid for in advance I would have gone elsewhere. The hotel inside much the same as outside...

We are sorry that the gentleman was disappointed. As advertised on the web site we are a property with warmth and character. (photographs all up to date) The building is Victorian but we do have all modern faciliies which were updated only a few months ago. It is advised that if people want a chic modern looking hotel this is... More

We found this B&B to be overall good, but with some minuses. We found the family room we stayed in, to be more than ample in size. The room was clean and fresh and beds were re-made every day. There were plenty of tea/coffee making facilities. The decor was outdated , with kitsch ornaments and busy carpets (not that you... More

All en-suites have been recently refurbished. The choice to leave the wash basin in this particular family room (as is featured on the web site) was by popular preference. The point about hygeine has been noted, and hand wipes are available to use before leaving the en-suite. We do have a seperate bath that is available for visitor use when... More
