I booked in on Saturday 23/1 2016 into a single room nice guy carried my bag up as I'm recovering from knee op. It was'nt until he'd gone I noticed no kettle but was exhausted so did'nt really want to trail back downstairs. Not a bad nights sleep but when I went to have a shower I was out of... More

Place in general undervalued by peppme used to standard plain hotels without quirks There is rest to be found gppd food and the laidbackness of an english inn with italian twist Goung by what visitors put here and what i experienced A clean bathroom lots fixed and remedied to please the package holidayers... Still charming place in the green garden... More

I've stayed in some grotty places but this one is almost unbelievable! Upon booking in, when I eventually found someone! He couldn't give me my receipt as he couldn't work the computer. I was then asked what time I would like breakfast, it's served between 8 & 10 on Sunday's so I asked for 8. When I came down at... More

We booked this hotel for one night as we were attending a wedding nearby. I can safely say this is possibly the worst hotel I've ever visited. I say visited, as we actually didn't even stay here as the room was so disgusting. Dust everywhere, foul smell, rock solid bed and pillows, dirty bathroom...the list goes on! We walked downstairs...

Our families slept for two weeks and Tony has been very nice with them! They felt... More

This is a straightforward one! I Stayed at The Croft for 3 weeks due to work commitments in Kent. Experienced 3 different rooms all with their own specific faults; collapsed bed mattress, leaking toilet, soggy carpet (due to the leaking toilet), windows not fully closing, mold in the bathroom and above all a lack of general cleanliness. Now onto the... More

Avoid it at all costs - in fact its not a hotel, more like an atrociously run boarding house. We arrived at 2pm after a long journey and wanted to change before a wedding we were going to nearby. Place completely closed up, and no reply from phone. When I came back at about 8.30, an over-worked waitress eventually managed... More

Although the room was clean and the beds were comfortable it was let down by having a badly cracked window (the whole of the bottom half of the window) which was held together by sellotape! We pointed this out to a member of staff who simply acknowledged that they were aware. The hotel in general is in need of some... More
