3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here in July as friends were getting married nearby and this hotel was on their suggested places to stay list. I wish I had booked somewhere else, the room was a bit tired and the bed was so uncomfortable that I think you would have been more comfortable on the floor. Breakfast was a bit of a shambles,...

I don't usually write reviews, but I feel compelled to do so after staying at this place because it is probably the most overpriced hotel I have ever stayed at. For the condition of the rooms and hotel interiors it should be half the price it is. The room was extremely dark and dingy despite it being a sunny day.... More

A relaxing stay, all staff polite, peaceful sleep and a reasonable breakfast...This is not always the case in many other higher grade hotels we've stayed in. The rooms though are beyond tired, they're Exhausted. This place is being run down by poor management to sell on, or its due to go through an extensive refurb programme, I hope it's the... More

We booked in here, thankfully, just for one night, we had upgraded to a deluxe room. The place is tired and has absolutely no atmosphere. If ours was a deluxe room, I would hate to think what a standard room is like. The window blinds were down and we couldn't pull them up, as the cords were broken in the... More

I had the misfortune of staying here last night, 11th July 2015 which was being paid for by a company I was working for. I was booked in for one night and for a single room. Now on arrival, there were people outside on the patio drinking wine and all looked ok. We went to check in and then it... More

I am surprised how this hotel manages to get so high ratings on other websites. Where should I start, if you are hoping for something quite and restful through the night well think again as you will get to hear your next door neighbour having a shower, in the bathroom 2 extra visitors ( spiders ) , the floor boards...

The hotel is really a rural-style hotel. Don't expect a lobby or even elevators. Everything is very simple and looks quite shabby. The restaurant and some rooms have been refurbished, and these look better than before, so could be recommended. However, please only visit this hotel for functional visits, not for enjoyment!

We attempted to have lunch here yesterday, if there were any staff! We waited at the bar for almost 10 mins with no one to be seen. We wandered around the bar & restaurant but still no staff! It's a shame as the hotel appears very pleasant, but no one to be seen, so we decided to leave and found... More

Decrepit room. Awful bed. Hotel very noisy (old timber floor, doors). No A/C but an old ventilator squeaking due to its age. Bathroom items (shampoo / soap / ...) Very cheap and bad. Reception / people not very friendly and useful (we had issues with our toilet flush and no one was able to fix it). Room was dusty and... More

The staff were very lovely. The room was a nice size, clean and had facilities such as a kettle with tea, coffee etc as well as biscuits. The room was cleaned everyday with fresh sheets and towels provided. Cannot fault the staff and organisation of the hotel! However, my room had an arched wall running along the right side of...
