Room (108) was tiny, carpet dirty & like something from the early 70's, beds "well used" and showing age,... More

Despite the main road being near the main road we were not disturbed by any road noise. The breakfast... More

Stopped off here with my wife on way home from a day out & at prices on menu we expected a decent meal however right from our soup being delivered to the table with no offer of a bread roll or even just some sliced bread we were a little apprehensive of what might follow. We had both ordered a... More
