Very tired, even in rooms which are a later vintage but still stuck in the 70s, Smelt of curry even at breakfast, room and corridor smelt of old and damp houses. Bathroom very dated, Did not try the food and decided not to have breakfast on account of smells, Food hygiene rating 3 which frankly should be better. I expect... More

When I arrived at the hotel I was already one hour late for our works party which was five minutes away and I still needed to get changed. The man on reception couldn't have been more helpful in organising me an iron, taxi, pint of lager for when I was getting ready and a Indian meal for me to collect... More

Smelly old worn carpets, dated decor, poor bathroom fittings, pretty miserable staff.....the list could go on. The cleaning standard in our room was not great as we found birthday confetti and loose change on the floor. The shower was a pitiful dribble which matched the ill fitting toilet seat that slipped to one side during use. The dreary corridors feel... More

Everything is fine but fine if it was 1972. This hotel is run down. Bar staff are terrible. I had a smelly pint of becks and when I took it back and told him it was off, he first tried to pour me another becks in the same glass and then when I stopped him he poured away those dregs,... More

Some people have written disparaging remarks about this hotel/pub. It should be borne in mind that the pub is 15th Century. I stayed there mid week and the hotel was relatively quiet. The room was what I expected it was clean. well furnished and supplied with tea coffee and biscuits. On the down side, the Restaurant Nirvana was closed during... More

The room that I had a single was a bit run down not up to the normal standard that I expect but it is an old hotel with a lot of the old English charm about it, V/G Indian restaurant, overall I would stay here again.

Stayed here for 1 nights bed and breakfast whilst on business in the area. Was a bit surprised how busy the car park was on my arrival at about 4.30pm however I managed to get a space. Check in was easy and the reception staff were pleasant. I had booked a single ensuite and was given room 132 on the... More

We have stayed here in the past, but we were sorry this time how tired and neglected it has become. Many necessary improvements wouldn't cost a lot of time or expense: clearing and tidying the overgrown weed patch that should be a garden; dusting tables, pipe work in public areas; washing bar curtains and windows; updating shabby bathrooms,ladies cloakroom stairway-access,...

My friend had booked two rooms for one night but upon checking in it took ages to find my booking. Eventually I was given a key. I made my way to the room down a corridor that smelled of stale curry and then another corridor which smelled of urine. The room was basic; furniture dark and shabby, the lighting in... More
