£280 for a 2 night stay in the worst guesthouse I have ever stayed in. It's noisy, broken and it stinks. The heating does not work and we were given a tiny electrical heater. I think the pictures speak for themselves : mould, broken taps, noise from the water pipes.

Booked on line thought it was expensive but expected reasonable accommodation. Stinks, very untidy, the tiniest of bathrooms, really grotty. Didn,t realise there was a festival on, so of course inflated tariff. They mentioned carparking, had to park a long distance away at a 25 pound for 24hrs car park. I,m usually easy to please but boy this is the... More

The en suite was more like a porta loo caravan style and smelled like raw sewage even though we left the door shut with the fan on we could still smell the stench throughout the whole room. This meant we used the shared bathroom which didn't smell but did flood if you shower for longer than 2 minuets! The sink... More

When we arrived there was a note on the door to say call a number to check in or go to another guest house across the road. We were... More
