“Go somewhere else!!”
Reviewed June 12, 2011

Arrived at 5pm after a long drive to find no-one answering the doorbell but found a notice on the door with a phone number to ring for service. Spoke to a woman who directed us to the Engleton (which was next door). Booking in was perfunctory at best.

We had a room at the top of the house which had no en-suite facilties - we shared a small shower room with the other room on the same floor. The room smelt of stale cigarettes and the carpet was clearly in need of a thorough hoovering - the carpet also didn't get hoovered during our stay. Towels were small and starchy, bedding was 70's style and light fittings were missing, you also needed to be he-man to open the door as it felt really heavy. This B&B could do with a top to bottom refurbishment as everything was very dated, old and dirty. En-suite is a must in any accommodation these days.

Breakfast was ok although the assumption was that everybody would want a full english. Staff were most surprised when someone said no. Had an early breakfast booked (7.30 am), but had to go into the Engleton as the Castleton didn't serve early breakfasts (same person served in both establishments on different days).

All in all, if you want a cheap, 70's style B&B this one's for you!!!

On arrival had to phone the number on the door and wait around for a member of staff to let us in, and show us to our room which was very basic and cramped in all areas. The bed very near window with ill-fitting curtains felt uncomfortable that the college across the road could clearly seen in also the room door had a large gap at the bottom, also the toilet door did not close properly. There was never any staff around and had to phone to ask for the towels to be changed etc. Breakfast selection was fine. The only good thing was it was close to bus station and not far from the town. No parking, only pay & display in all surrounding streets. Suppose its okay if just a base your looking for. Certainly not good value for money. Did move on to another B&B.

On arrival, once we found the place, it seemed an imposition on the staff to show us our room. As they were quiet, we had a choice of room but found them all as bad as each other. The rooms had everything - kettle, TV, etc, but they were generally very poorly presented. Very poor quality furnishings (I have seen similar in skips) and linen, and the standard of the bathroom (clearly an add-on, and poorly installed) was dire. We decided to camp in a tent the next night instead of paying money for such poor quality! The breakfast the next day was acceptable but in general the atmosphere was bad, the service was bad, and the standard of accomodation barely made it worth paying for. I commented on the high price for what you recieved on check out and the owner couldn't seem to understand my point at all!

For:
Fairly cheap. Huge English breakfast. Friendly helpful waitress.

Against:
Room had cheap furniture with ill co-ordinated furnishings, ill-fitting thin curtains. TV viewable from only one bed as bracket swivelled towards window. Shower room was DIY hardboard cubicle in corner with mish-mash of fittings and terrible dribbly shower and basin tap that was poorly fitted so swivelled.
Small threadbare towels. View over untidy back yard and washing. (Rooms at front overlook road).
Worst of all both nights disturbed by other very noisy guests, on first night until 5.30 am.
Complaint to owner in morning had no affect as it all began again at 11pm on second night. Had to make phone call to number on back of room door which was difficult as mobile signal poor. Eventually someone from adjoining guest house came in and sorted problem, but this is perhaps indicator of calibre of guests. Overall an unpleasant experience.
