1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

A group of us booked 3 rooms in this hotel for the night. We booked 2 standard rooms and on family room.  The family room has one double and a single bed, it's dirty, cobwebs hanging from the light fittings. The bedside lamp is on the floor as there is no bedside table.  The bathroom housed the last guests sponge and used soap.  The carpet on the stairs looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in months.  The other 2 rooms were in a wooden annex, the rooms were very small, smelt of bleach and again the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The complimentary tea and coffee was 3 plastic boxes with stale coffee in one and sugar and tea bags in the other.  We would never stay here again.

Sarah S, Owner at The Dukes, responded to this review, April 18, 2016
Hello Davina. I just wanted to let you know that we have taken over The Dukes Head and renamed it as The Dukes. We have refurbished all the rooms as well as the restaurant and bar and converted it into a gastro pub and B&B. The rooms are now very clean and kept to a much higher standard. Our 2 family rooms have new double beds and double sofa beds and the 4 "annex" bedrooms have new beds and are refurbished now too. We hope you will consider using The Dukes again now that it is under new management and we have updated the rooms and opened the bar and restaurant? Many thanks.
