Room (Same one as picture by ScotlandNicky7) was fairly clean. Everything worked. Dinner and breakfast were mediocre with a very standard menu. Staff were pleasant. Well placed for a little shopping at... More

Have stayed at this hotel twice in the last week and findings similar on both occasions. Very friendly and helpful staff, with the exception of those at breakfast, who did not appear to want to be there! In spite of that, the breakfast was actually quite good! Room was fairly large, but very tired around the edges, with old-fashioned and... More

I was seduced into booking this hotel by the photos on the web diet, unfortunately the photos are very very old. The hotel is very tired and needs some money spent on it and giving a proper facelift. Very disappointed. On the good side the staff were friendly and it was a decent breakfast.

We stayed at the Garden House Hotel whilst cycling LE-JOG and it was very well located en-route. They stored our bikes for us without a problem and the evening meal and breakfast was very good, but the mattress on the bed was way past its' use-by date and was very uncomfortable. Our friend's mattress in another room was equally bad.... More

My husband picked up a towel from the rusty radiator in the bathroom, the towel was thread bare. I refused to remove my... More
