Really sad to find that plans have been...

We Have just returned from a three night stay at this hotel. Our room was clean and very spacious. There was plenty of hot water, a big bath and a powerful shower. Exactly what is needed after a days hard hiking. Two beds in the room both very comfy. Plenty of tea and coffee. The hotel is tired but then...

Took my girlfriend here for a couple nights after being unable to secure a B&B. After looking at the reviews I was a bit nervous about what we'd find there; I was picturing a run-down tat-fest but was instead greeted by a warm, cheerful hotel with comfy beds and a convenient location. It is indeed quirky, our room had pictures...

Stayed for one night after coming for a days walking. I was doubting my choice after seeing some of the reviews but as long as your not expecting luxury its fine. Yes it's tired and in serious need of updating but we found the room and bathroom clean, the bed surprisingly comfortable and is in a great location. The cost...

Had serious reservation due to reviews on here, but at least we were prepared for not the best. It was a clean room, fair size. The hotel is very dated and needs a major over haul, which doesn't look like it will come. A real ale pub, with no real ale available. £ 65 for the night, basic but ok.

I can entertain do quirky, it is part if being English but this place is ruddy expensive for quirky. You are greeted by a picture of Basil Faulty in the window , so the owners have a sense of humour but in reality they are laughing all the way to the bank. The place is run down, dirty, shabby, certainly...
