We stayed 1 night room only. 2 adults to children. Were expecting nothing special due to the £65 price. But what we got was terrible. They told us they would hold the room on cc as I asked to pay cash on leaving. So we got there. Foyer public areas ok but dated. Room on first looks looked good but... More

We booked this hotel for two nights but felt we had to leave after 1. Sadly the hotel is falling apart, paint coming off the walls, the balcony floor is sinking, floorboards giving way and the shower had no temp control at all. Staff has no people skills, apart from the going lady on checkout. In short the hotel is... More

We took a 3 day quick break , its a coach party venue so hotel is well used. The rooms are shabby, beds most uncomfortable, although it was clean. Food was ok not a lot of choice for breakfast, we didn't have evening dinner. The reception staff were not very polite it seemed a jobs worth and a smile and... More

The room was in very poor condition, the patio door locks were about as useful as a chocolate fire guard. The bathroom floor was falling apart. The bath... More

My single room was adequate,and much better than some I had experienced,but others had been an improvement on this, but for the price paid on a package with Urquart... More
