We stayed at this hotel ten years ago and found it mediocre then but it had a faded charm and was OK for one night. So despite the reviews previously on here we booked. Ten years on and we needed it for a repeat occasion. This time we brought my frail old Mum. She had a single room and had to climb the steep stairs as there was just one single on the first floor and the rest on the second. The stair carpet we remembered was worn through to the wood and we had no confidence she could get up and down safely alone. Her room (9) had been a small single before they shoved in a shower at the bottom of the bed and the loo next to it in a cupboard. She could not shut the door once sat on the toilet as it touched the inside of the door. Opposite that was the counter and sink. Once sculpted in style, it was cracked and splintered and leaked with the plug in. She did say the bed was comfy, and the sheets were clean, but by then she was stacked up on a folded quilt and several pillows. There was just one hanger in the wardrobe and little room to move around, but at least she was less likely to fall. She did have a view of the overgrown garden at the back. She did not try the shower and had a tiny tv suspended on the wall above the bed, which she could not see from the single chair. Once she was settled, we checked out our own room. We had room 5 at the top of the stairs on the first floor. This was a large room containing a double and single bed and a tiny modern bathroom. The sink was small and there was no plug. It took at least 15 minutes of running to get hot water in the morning. On arrival we both had cold showers. There was a huge TV and wardrobe with no hangers. Again, sheets were clean and there were 3 white towels with a sachet of shampoo and shower gel and a soap on each. We did have a small bathmat outside the tiny shower too. The furniture was ancient and dusty and we found a pair of dirty old trainers in a bottom drawer. The view from our window between the faded ancient curtains was a dilapidated shed and a pile of broken furniture, but it was quiet as we know it backs onto a park. The receptionist was kind and helpful and booked us a taxi for our event and provided more necessary milk and tea for the room. On our return in the dark we had to ring the bell and the night receptionist let us in, in the dark and made us wait to put the lights on inside, which spooked Mum as she was afraid of falling. Once back in our room we discovered that our bed was hard as a plank and spent most of the night trying to get comfortable. Doors banging in the property were loud and another party of guests ventured out late through the garden to the rusty table and kept us awake shouting for hours in the dark. I presume they were served at the bar near reception which is not exactly pleasant to use inside, and again a lone woman receptionist is not responsible for, nor likely to tackle, the behaviour of inconsiderate guests. Anyway the night passed uncomfortably and we did not opt for the breakfast (£8 extra despite what is advertised) as they needed advance warning to get someone in to cook it. The dining room we remembered using on our previous occasion looked unused and forlorn. And to cap it all as we packed up eager to leave, there was water running through our ceiling from the shower upstairs. There has obviously been no investment in the place for the decade between visits and it would surely never pass inspection. My lesson - heed Trip Advisor warnings! This is the first time I have left such a negative review as I try to be reasonable and positive but this place left me no choice.

First bit of advice - read the reviews, then decide! Stayed here for one night for a friends party held locally, but would not do so again! Usually stay at Premier Inn a couple of miles away where you know what you are getting! But it had been booked on our behalf, so we didn't really have a choice. As previous reviews state, the hotel is tired, tired, tired. Most misleading statement is that breakfast is included! My husband checked the website which said it was - but we were reliably informed that haven't offered breakfast since July 2018! He suggested that they needed to update their website & receptionist said she would pass this on - but reading earlier reviews, obviously this message hasn't got through in the past, so why should it now? There is a huge dining room, with tables just covered with white tablecloths, but my guess is it hasn't been used for morning or evening food for a long time! Our room was small, you could just about walk round the bed, the wardrobe would only hold 3-4 hangers - a mixture of which was provided. Furniture was of B&Q budget range variety. There was a step down into the ensuite, huge potential for accidents in the dark. In fairness, it was clean & so was the room. Unless you are desperate, do not come here - pay a bit extra & go somewhere else!

I'd read the mixed reviews on Tripadvisor and other websites and thought that the hotel would probably be OK for the price of £55 for a single ensuite room for one night with breakfast. However, when I arrived at 7pm, the eight off-road parking slots were mostly filled with large white vans. Fortunately there was one space left, as there is no other parking around the hotel. On entering the hotel, there was that 'odour' of a hotel that was in decline and had seen better days. The carpets and furnishings were tired and worn. When the receptionist eventually put down the phone after her social chat, she was very pleasant and helpful, although she informed me that I was not actually booked in for breakfast and I had to pay £8 extra. My fault or a confusing booking website for the hotel? I thought that I'd paid for breakfast! It became immaterial anyway, as there was a gas leak in the kitchen during the evening so the gas supply was turned off and cooked breakfast was consequently not available anyway! Neither was a hot shower in the morning. My room was on the top (2nd) floor (no lifts) and was a narrow room with a shower cubicle and a toilet 'cubicle' actually built into the room at the bottom of the bed rather than a separate ensuite shower-room. The sink unit on the opposite wall was huge and dominated the room, whilst the wardrobe was very small and would only accommodate 3-4 hangers. The good news was that the bed was comfortable, but it had a thin blanket which was folded over 4 times, rather than a duvet, so my night was punctuated by waking up cold when the blanket had slipped off. Fortunately the hotel was quiet when I stayed on a Monday night. The hotel does not provide dinner so I walked to the local pub about 5 minutes away. It's a chain pub but the food was satisfactory and reasonably priced. When I returned to the hotel the night porter informed me of the gas leak and that there would not be a cooked breakfast; just cereal and toast. In the morning, after a cold shower and shave, I went to breakfast at 7:40 to find that the dining room was closed and nothing laid for breakfast. Most of the white vans had gone, so I presume that they get their breakfast elsewhere. The receptionist made so lame excuse about the staff not being here yet and then opened the dining room and started laying out the cereal. I helped myself to cereal and the waitress eventually arrived and provided me with some toast, but no option of brown bread toast. The coffee in a pot on the hot plate was instant rather than filter coffee and the 'orange juice' was a dayglo orange colour which was obviously powered orange rather than fresh orange, but I didn't test it! On checking out, the receptionist had the good grace to refund the £8 I'd paid for breakfast. Was it worth £55 for a single room with inbuilt (rather than ensuite) facilities? Probably not, and I won't be going back!

Working locally 1 nights stay that’s enough for anyone better conditions in prison, The lobby dated dark and smells like eggs the staff polite but no uniform, Room 1 The room was cold a window was left open which we didn’t realise until returning from a meal, the room was a mixture of cheap and old furniture a coffee table with missing glass was the pick of the bunch, the sheets and curtains look at least 30 years old with a worn carpets and stained walls, the room has been patched up with bad DIY, the bathroom had mould between tiles and it was very small you couldn’t swing a rat never a cat. I would recommend to anyone not particularly cheap £69 pounds a night and the least you expect is cleanliness and a decent shower AVOID!

Staff were nice and friendly, decor could be updated as the carpets and stuff looking very warn. The room was a decent size we were just staying one night so didn't need anything too big, the bathroom light didn't work, the toilet seat wasn't secured properly and the towels had stains in them. Stayed here due to convenience for a family party so probably would stay again for ease of locality
