(This place gets one circle only because I couldn't give it a ZERO. Also, we were international travellers (Aussies) on a self-drive holiday. We booked in Australia, going by the photos and description online - which we now know to be totally inaccurate.) The place is a disgrace. We were greeted as though we were an inconvenience and had to... More

Needed one night accommodation in the area at reasonable rate. This pub/hotel fitted the bill perfectly. Staff very welcoming, room a bit basic and could do with a good dusting but bedding was clean, plenty of towels and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, choice of toast, cereals, juice, full english or the whole set. Perhaps not for a family... More

Knew this place was getting on abit so wasn't too surprised with the overall condition. The bathroom looked like it had been updated ie tiles but there was no towel rail ,hang wet towels on shower/door . The shower had black mould around the edges and I wiped off the mould on the hose with wet wipes. The room itself... More

I must make clear that my rating refers to booking.com not the hotel. Yesterday my husband booked a room for Tuesday night on Booking.com. Today we needed to change that booking and have been charged the full room cost for that night. Do NOT use this company. This is NOT made clear in the booking information. I repeat, please avoid...

First Impressions not great, dreadful. Very dated. Not Clean. Was not advised before booking about party that was going on till late and was very loud. The thought of going back there after a day out was awful.

What more can you want when you arrive at a place and you don't know that much just the usual set up and you find that something is even better then your expectations! That is how I remembered the place! Simple, great room for the price, lovely people, and everything else that fits the bill!

I booked a room in this hotel/pub without a lot of deep thought, as my husband and I required a nights accommodation nearby where we were playing a gig with our band, so had no great expectations as it was so cheap. However, upon arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to a very clean, spacious and lovely double room.... More
