I stayed here for one night in June and at the time it was cheapest hotel at £25 at night, and no wonder. Knocked on the door and was met by a woman, no greeting, no mention of what time breakfast was, no information about parking permits. She said there was no need for a parking permit because the "inspectors... More

This is the worst hotel I've stayed at in the UK. Cobwebs all over the ceiling and walls and mould/peeling wallpaper next to the bed (see pictures). Just awful. I won't be staying here again any time soon. Avoid.

I stayed here as the hotel I was booked in was under going work, I have to admit Dave did seem off to start with and wanted the money as soon as I went in, staying alone somewhere I had never been before was abit unnerving, the room was a nice size even though I had view of the smoking... More

Despite calling the owner an hour before asking if he could leave the door open for us, as check in closes at 9pm, we were greeted by a nasty man who was confused as to why we were here. Before this we had been trying to get in for about 10 minutes so we were finally relived to see a... More

On arrival, the rather rude landlord had forgotten my booking, even though I had only phoned a couple of days before, and nothing was written down on his booking sheet. The single room was dreary, with a hole in the wall behind the TV and a broken bedside lamp. The pillows smelled awful, so I used a rolled up towel... More

I arrived at about 9pm to check in and had been travelling a while but expected a warmer welcome from the proprietor. He gave no information apart from that my room was "round there". He couldn't remember taking my booking and it appeared nothing had been written down regarding my booking. The room was clean and tidy and the breakfast... More
