Manager unbelievably rude and uncaring. Walked away when we told him we were unhappy!! The manager got us all to pay before we even saw the rooms- a mistake we... More

Stayed here with my band and this place has not had a facelift since the 70s. The wardrobe was hilarious and the bathroom, well. Theres no sockets to use and the wallpaper is hanging off. If you like going back in time, this is for you !

This hotel is old. Really really old. They claim 3 stars but it's more like 2. The rooms are rusty and out of time. But if you're looking for cheap place to spend the night in, go for it. It's overall clean and the bar is open 24 hrs. Restaurant is not bad too.

Had a family room here for 2 nights. Children are 11, 3 and 15 months. Exposed electric cables were a concern with 2 very young children. Carpets were filthy wardrobe and drawers with layers of dust. Just unclean in general. Ceilings were those of an office block old and worn. 4 dirty cups for tea and coffee and none of... More

Wonderful lunch with generous portion of meat. Reasonably priced and much better than first visit which was on mother's day.w I'll visit again with family. As this is close to home I can see this becoming a regular visit.

We stayed one night at the Castle hotel, the room size was very good, each room comes with shower and toilet, you also get a kettle and tea, coffee and sugars sachet for hot drinks in your room. We had double bed in our room the mattress was not firm.
