Positives: The history of this old coaching Inn with it being a 400 year old Grade ll listed building, it has retained many of its original features including a courtyard, also has an interesting rear entrance hallway into property, has character with low ceilings and original uneven sloping stairs. Friendly and helpful young lady on Reception desk. Off street secure parking available. Negatives: When we arrived hand basin was blocked up full of someones dirty washing water, when we returned later that evening maintenance had unblocked it and just the remnants of black beard stubble remained, toilet bowl was badly stained and there were grubby sticky black finger marks around door handles and on the kettle, no waste bin and a general unpleasant stale smell to the room. Small window did not provide adequate ventilation during hot weather spell, told no fans available either. Noisy late at night with large group of young men shouting and riding around the market Square on their bikes. The only saving grace was that the bedding covers were clean and there were fresh towels left on bed. We were let down on a previous booking elsewhere, so booked this in a bit of a hurry to use as a base, wish I'd researched the reviews more thoroughly beforehand. With the right ownership this Hotel has the potential to be great because of its history but as it stands now it's just a tired run down Hotel in a bit of a run down area.

Awful!!!! Like faulty towers! Actually that’s most probably better! On arrival I got an upgrade! Whooo hoo happy days! My upgrade was a vile room with a broken toilet! Off to Complain and was given another room! This one wasn’t much better, but after a mega long drive and a full days work I wanted a shower…. Well I could pee faster! And the shower was filthy! So were the drawers, the floor, you name it, it was vile! No tv remote. Off to complain again and was shown another room, bath panel hanging off, hairs on the bed, toilet don’t flush! Person in charge said he will leave a note for boss for the morning! It’s 11 Pm and too late to find somewhere else Fuming! Would I stay again would I hell!

This place is Grim. Food is 1970s frier cooked old pub food and not a great standard. The hotel is Quirky think faulty towers. The room was OK at 1st glance but then run the other way. Dirty mirrors and Bathroom I didn't want to look anymore for fear of what I would find. The walls in the bathroom were filthy with god knows what I tried to ignore it but did let reception know when running/checking out. My bed looked fresh and well made but when I got in it was gritty and I'm sure I found some hairs but they could have been mine it is moulting season but I really didn't want to think they were not mine. due to the age of the building everything is wonky but I felt I was falling out of bed could that be delves in the mattress who knows . The male receptionist was the highlight great stories and very pleasant could not do more for us. I had to stay as I had nowherre else to but I should have stayed anywhere else.

The room was dirty and mouldy. There were cobwebs in the bathroom and splatters on the wall and furniture. The net curtains were stained. It was very dark and the light barely worked. The bedside lamps were for show as there were no sockets near enough to plug them into. I moved one across the room to the sockets and it was slippery with grease. One of the two sockets didn't work and the socket cover was falling off making it unsafe. The shower could only be set to freezing cold or scalding hot. I felt unsafe in the area around the hotel and inside the hotel. There was a lot of shouting outside at night. Based on some notices inside the hotel, I think it was being used as a homeless hostel.
