We booked a family room. The pictures on the site didn't do the place justice. Our curtains were falling down, foul smell from the bathroom and the sockets were exposed and dangerous. Our room was downstairs and road facing hence the noise of traffic for most of the night. The TV didn't work and the main light didn't work either.... More

Where do I start? I booked this through booking.com and when I was looking for rooms the main consideration to me was that the room had its own bathroom. I would never have booked it if it didn't have one but when I arrived apparently I hadn't booked one with a bathroom. My room was on the top floor -... More

We quickly dropped... More

£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.
