I booked this hotel as it seemed the most reasonable price when the others were £100+, so I wasn't expecting the Ritz! On arriving it was clear this was simply a pub with bedrooms upstairs and there seemed to be nothing separating the hotel guests to the riff-raff alcoholics, but I overlooked this. The female staff member was very nice and showed me to the room which itself was comfortable, although in need of a decorating upgrade. The bath had a large crack in it and the toilet wasn't the cleanest with a rotten toilet brush! The bed was quite hard and there was only one extra pillow available! I then realised the shower was totally unusable and had no hot water whatsoever! Unfortunately the room kettle didn't work and the supplied glasses were quite dirty. Breakfast was fine although the dippy 16 year old waitress forgot to give us our toast. In summary, this hotel isn't bad if you are staying for one night and don't want to spend a fortune and you can accept a few hiccups. Had I paid any more, I wouldn't have been impressed.
