I stayed here recently having attended at friends wedding at the Jester. Having read previous reviews i was feelng a little sceptical, however my overall feel of the place is that it has the potential to be a great venue. But I do agree with some of the reviews in that it does need updating. Our room was clean but... More

Under new management and i dont know much about hotels but i think it should be shut down and renovated. Its not their fault that there are cracks in the wall etc..but couldnt they have... More

To be fair, I don't really expect much from a £60 B&B in this part of the world, but the room was clean, bed comfortable and room acceptable. The decor all round needs attention, but the food was excellent and the cooked breakfast was above the norm. In the middle of nowhere, but when doing business travel that's often not... More

Room are very basic and a bit dated. The hotel is close to the station which if you want a train is great but can be a bit noisy. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Food was very good I only ate there on one night but speaking to other guests the raved about the steaks.

The Jester is under new management and the food is FABULOUS! The sirloin steak is the best I have ever eaten in the UK and I will be returning ASAP. The fish and chips are excellent too. Service is efficient and friendly. Highly recommended - visit as soon as you can!

Forgot to write this one up until now. We stayed here as it was on the "recommended" by a local wedding venue. Well don't believe all you read. Cold room, hard uncomfortable bed, dirty smelly and tiny bathroom. We had 2 rooms at £75 each, much better to be had elsewhere, anywhere in fact! Will never stay here again and... More

The sooner the better in my opinion. Had to stay at this horrible little hotel as a college lives near by and there are no other hotels to choose. Staff are quite friendly but they treat it like their own party pad, getting drunk and blasting music out loudly until 1am on a Tuesday night. Also right next to a... More

We stayed at The Jester in order to attend a family wedding. The website certainly presnets the room and standards in a better light. The rooms are shabby and in serious need of decoration and re Vamping. The bathroom has damp on the walls and the shower cutrain is covered in mould. The shower head squirts in 5 directions and...
