I stay here fairly regularly due to working in the area . The owner Georgio is a nice guy and is a good laugh, but if you don't know him he might seem a bit eccentric ! He has owned the property for the last 37 years ! Bearing in mind this is not a chain hotel they have done... More

we had two rooms booked - a double and a family room. the double was quite nice with 4 poster bed, but very small en suite with no where for toiletries. furniture was in need of TLC - missing handles on drawers, cupboards had bits of cardboard wedged in them to keep them shut. very warm so just as well...

I was prepared to be disappointed after reading some of the reviews so was quite surprised to find a lovely room / suite complete with 4 poster bed and small kitchen area with sink, fridge and microwave. If I was to fault I would have to be quite finicky, no bin in the bathroom (although there was one in the... More

We stayed one night and whilst the location was great, the place was a bit odd. You go into the restaurant and have to shout for someone to come out. The rooms are round back and very very dated. Not what I expected for £80 a night. The bathroom was nice but we had to wait half an hour for... More

I stayed here on business and despite the negative reviews I am always up for sampling experiences myself. I'm sorry had these principles. On first arrival I had to interrupt an eastern European gentleman who was vacuuming the restaurant only to find he hadn't any English to understand. Eventually a chap came out and checked me in and directed me... More

A quick check in after a long day was in the bar area of the restaurant - no problems for me, but if it was busy could have been awkward. Lucky me, bumped up to a room with aircon - so a top tip is to request it. It's vital. The room itself was nice, clean and v comfy bed... More

found hotel to be very clean , in town centre , with free car park . We were given a room on the top floor. We asked to be changed to a ground floor due to my husbands sciatica . No problem , the room was spacious and adequate for our needs . Very quiet . Would stay again .

This is not a place I would recommend for families. The owner is bad tempered and disinterested in his guests. During our visit we encountered three problems: 1. No hot water each morning. 2. Air conditioning problem on Day 1 and top floor room very hot & stuffy for entire visit. . 3. No Wifi access in bedroom. The owner... More

Booked a triple room which was 3 floors up. Asked politely of a lift, to be told it was 'no, it's a young hotel' and were left struggling with 50 kg of luggage. No help offered at all. Room smelt of cigarettes and the windows were filthy. One bed hadn't been made and so they brought some sheets and an... More

Spacious room, very comfortable bed, large screen T.V, shower was powerful. The decor was uninspiring needed some T.L.C. Mould on ceiling above the shower which was not very nice. Tea making facilities were not great, there was no fresh milk or mini bar....no bottled water either...yet they had an empty fridge in the room which was not even plugged in.... More
