I really wanted to like The Magnet. The friend who booked our overnight stay assured us that a lot of money had been invested in the renovation of the property and that we could safely ignore previous poor reviews. I wish I could be so easily pleased. Our small room may well have been comfortable on a balmy summer evening.... More

The new owners of this place couldn't have been more friendly and obliging. We asked to see the room before booking and were relieved to see that it had been recently updated. We had read some reviews, and were needlessly hesitant. The room was clean, the bathroom excellent and new paint and fittings throughout. The kitchen was nearly finished and... More

Very clean and tidy and I learned the new owner has just refurbished the rooms, new carpets, big TVs and beds etc etc. I was worried about staying after reading the reviews on here but didn't need to be. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very helpful and friendly. I wish the new team there every... More

Terrible place however I have been told it is now closed down and I am not surprised! A friend booked us in here along with a few others so we could attend a party. I'm so glad it was a drinking party because if I had been sober I would not of stayed! The stairs were a death trap, the... More

This place should be struck off what ever list is out there. The most disgusting place, I would not put my dog in there. When we entered the room there was no cold water, the TV did not work, the bathroom and shower was disgustingly dirty. The best bit was the beds, two single beds the springs were coming through...

Do not ever stay here. The on-site free parking is the first lie- "park on the road mate" says the under age bar man " my girlfriend has done that all the time and never got caught yet" and then says its only 30 quid if they do you any way!! That's before you are guided to the filthiest room... More

We got our keys, walked in to find excrement all down the inside of the toilet as well as limescale that had turned the blue toilet a shade of white, and the shower head was black with dirt and mould. We pulled the covers back on the bed to find various "bits" distributed on the sheet and not only were... More

The Magnet has no pretentions to be anything other than a 'what you see is what you get' establishment. Don't expect much and you will get just that. The landlady has clearly never heard of customer service or good manners for that matter. Breakfast was to be cooked after half past nine, so completely useless for anyone working or on... More

Don't waste your money at this place, just read the comments of others to see why! Spend your hard earned cash elsewhere. Don't say you were not warned............ Broken bed, sheets not changed from previous user, dirty carpets, dirty bathroom, dirty toilet & loo roll & whatever else was still visible in the pan, old soap on the basin with... More
