The local branch of the Royal British Legion held a pie and mash supper to commemorate D-Day on Friday 6th June, 2014. We completely booked out the restaurant, so the hotel was at full stretch. The hotel had decorated the room for us and the waitresses were dressed in 1940’s clothes. The meal was served on time and efficiently by... More

Having read the reviews after we had booked we were a little apprehensive. But ignore the negative reviews because this place really gives value for money. Since the new owners took over in November 2012 they have worked hard to improve the overall standard of the hotel. The welcome we received was excellent and the staff were very attentive without...

Not good value for money...not very clean...bathroom was filthy as were the windows and carpets and the there was a horrible smell in the hallway and room...the bedding appeared clean but the towels were old and worn and not enough had been provided...perhaps this was because they knew the shower didn't work! However there was no one to complain to!... More

Room was good size and beds were fine. Clean and tidy but a few niggles like leaking taps and shower tray - also nothing to prop the window open with. No real problems although I expected better for the price. The owner indicated he was in the process of getting it up to standard. No food available in the hotel... More

My friend and I stayed for one Saturday night to be close to the race track at Caldwell. We payed £70 inc cooked breakfast for a twin room, whilst his brother and his wife and their three year old and teenager stayed in a family room. Perhaps a hotel suited to the older crowd,since it's certainly not modern and there;s... More
