My friend and I stopped here for lunch. We ordered soup and Savoury Cheese sandwich. The sandwich was utterly appalling ... bland white bread (no choice) filled with some kind of concoction of a horrible tasting mayo-type substance and grated cheese that was so minimal that we couldn't even taste it.

Enjoyed a couple of nights here as a base for exploring the surrounds. This is more a pub with rooms than a hotel. The accommodation is adequate - perhaps a little tired - but the staff and service was just great. Nice bar with live music some nights - could be heard from the room so maybe check in advance...

To say that the décor in this hotel was drab and tired would be doing it a service. Also, my room didn't have a kettle, there was only a small bar of soap, the carpet looked as if it hadn't been cleaned for months, and there was a spot of blood on the duvet. On the positive side, the bar... More

We were booked in for three nights as we thought it would be central for touring the area. We stayed for one. The room was freezing. There was a tiny , lukewarm heater and a radiator that hardly worked at all. It was so cold I slept in my clothes. The dinner was very basic, dry chicken, frozen chips and... More

Paid £45 for double room, single occupancy, had 5 rooms. Hotel is dated, staff are not hotel chain standard. Breakfast was good. Room quality varies, some even more dated than others. Room 7 is a triple, less noise, slightly better decor, get a deal if you can. Everywhere was cleaned to a good standard.
