Please refer to photos before considering this hotel. VERY poor standards of cleanliness. Rude Staff. Stayed one hot and humid night (29/08/2016). Temperatures extremely high, unable to open window more that approx. 2'' due to lock. (is that legal?) and one particular female member of staff became antagonistic and actually raised her voice at me when I requested a fan... More

This hotel is squalid. Please look at photos to before spending any hard earned cash. Apart from the very low standard of accommodation, several - not all, members of staff must have been off when hospitality training days took place. The night we had booked in was a particularly hot and humid night (29/08/2016) and we requested a fan. A... More

Stayed for the night, room ok with comfy bed but bathroom had a sloping floor with what seemed a leak from the toilet!!!! Food was nice but whole place could do with a makeover as it looks lovely from the outside.

I would not recommend staying in the family rooms. We booked two family rooms due to the number of children that we've got and although the online booking system mentions that the rooms are above the bar and function rooms and might be noisy, this was an understatement as you could clearly hear the MC in the function room when...

We stayed at the Bear on the Saturday of August Bank Holiday. As with previous stays, the welcome was friendly and our bags were taken up to the room ahead of check in. The rooms are huge, clean and comfortable but in need of some renovation, the bathrooms in particular are a little “knackered” but again very clean. It was... More

On our return yesterday we found our coffee cups in the wash hand basin, toilet paper had not been renewed and coffee supplies not topped up. Tonight we returned and our room had not been touched at all. We are... More

Advantages-Great pub downstairs with good food, beverages and staff. Great prices/value on food and drink. Excellent breakfast. Superior location. Parking in back. Outdoor seating in courtyard to have a drink, coffee, tea. Really nice staff. Helpful to know: Lots of stairs to some of the rooms but staff will help you with luggage. They will also let you store luggage... More

the staff are friendly and very very helpful, we ordered room service and the guy brought it up 3 flights of stairs, there was no salt and vinegar on the tray so the guy went back down and got it and brought it back up to us.

We enjoyed a three night stay last week and were pleasantly surprised after some of the less than good reviews we had seen. The room was large and clean with the added bonus of a fan as the weather was very warm. The bed was huge and very comfortable. Our room (43) overlooked the car park at the back of... More
