We spent 3 nights there but would not consider a return any time. I must say from the start that the staff were very good; always smiling and helpful...so no complaints there. List of problems: The hotel is very run down and needs a good face lift. seals and grouting in bathroom had been repaired several times; wallpaper tatty; plaster... More

We have never stayed at a hotel like this. It made Fawlty Towers look like the Ritz. On booking we asked if it was suitable for people with mobility problems. They said "Yes, no problem". On arrival we were asked to pay for the total stay up front. Never, ever, had to do that before. Our room was at the... More

NO, NO, NO! I have a dog,'Hugo' and as the website stipulates 'pet friendly' After having directly booked, reception confirmed my booking and knowledge of my companion, took my credit card details as guarantee.. Having travelled many miles, was expecting, at least a shower and bed for the night.. Upon arrival, was greeted with hostility and ignorance! I was refused... More

We do welcome small dogs to the hotel. This is with advanced bookings where arrangements are made and one of our 4 ground floor rooms would have been allocated. Our booking records showed no record of the large dog coming to stay and we have also checked with the staff member who took the booking, who also was not informed... More

Unfortunately we were daft enough to book the dinner& breakfast deal. This is not value for money. Although chef tried his best -dinner menu poor. Although breafast was vastly better-selection of cereal for me :) and good looking fry up for the other half. Rooms clean but could do with a good freshen up. Tv-very small so you better sit... More

Stayed here for a weekend. The hotel is a lovely old building but everything is very tired and worn. Had a meal in the pub.. Again the decor was absolutely atrocious, tables and chairs not very good either.. Food wasnt bad but no steak knife brought with the meal, asked for mayo but practically finished the meal before it arrived.... More

Unfortunately the airman hotel ruined what should have been an enjoyable birthday meal. Firstly they didn't understand that 'apple cider' is just normal cider... oh dear! They then forgot to serve the starters, so straight to the main meal.. They didn't have a lot of what we wanted for main course, no grilled chicken? They brought out sweet potato chips... More

Its the first time of writing a report as I wanted to comment on our experience. Four of us came for lunch on Mothers Day and appreciated that it would be busy. (you would be worried if it wasnt) Our meals were all delicious and the steak cooked to perfection. The staff seemed professional, friendly and hardworking and my only... More

We were taken to the airman hotel for Mother's Day lunch the food menu was a little restricted but for the cost per head it was ok, why complain about the couple of hours, do people not talk to each other and who wants to be rushed in and out, I spoke to the new Manager (a young blond girl)...
