After arriving after a 12 hour journey which should have only took 5 hours with the Diamond Bus Company for a three night stay, here we are at what I would call an old peoples home. I must say the staff were very helpful. Bedding and towels were clean. Food ok. I stayed in a twin room with a friend.... More

The bathroom was a disgrace,black mould on ceiling and around the shower and taps.The staff were very pleasant and hard... More

Positives: Very clean bedding and very friendly, hardworking bar and restaurant staff. Good food Negatives: Rooms and lounge areas very dated, furniture shabby and falling apart. Had no hot water in shower so had wash under taps with the aid of a large plastic jug. When reported to the Owner I was informed plumbers are not available on the weekends.... More

Well where do you start we arrived on Saturday 30/5 and the internet pictures are a very long way from reality! Believe me when I say that you would have more enjoyment throwing £50 notes on to a bonfire! The leaflet said that all bathrooms had been refurbished they clearly forgot to do rooms 126 and 128 gaudy yellow paint... More

Stayed here for business for a night, the room was clean and tidy, the ensuite was massive and clean, if it was upto me I would extend the room and shrink the ensuite, staff were friendly and polite, breakfast was nice. Very traditional place. Would highly recommend for the older generation.

Although the hotel does look slightly dated ( it is an old building afterall). There is a... More
