“Arrogant Manager!!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

The manager was arrogant, greedy, very rude, had no idea about customer service.His employers were terrified of him. He treats them like it's the era of slavery. Hello! It's England 2013!
It's the worst hotel ever, dirty stained beds, stinky carpets, cracked floor, very noisy water pipes, paper thin walls, wires sticking out of sockets, broken lights. Shall I continue?
This hotel should be closed down for safety reasons. For £10 extra you can have 4* hotel just across the road.

“Worst hotel I have ever stayed in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

I have worked in the hospitality industry for about 5 years. this was the worst hotel i he ever experienced!!We went earlier this month and had requested a double room, and they put us in a twin room, but got moved to a double, also found long blonde hairs in the shower (not mine as mine is red) and short black hairs on the pillows and under the duvet! The staff are not helpful and didnt ask us anything about whether we enjoyed out stay or anything at breakfast, had to wait 10 mins to get a cup of tea!! Crap service and crap hotel!!!!! Would not recommend this place to anyone!! Do not book this hotel. There is a lovely looking premier inn down the hill, with balconies for about 10 more per night!!!

“wine weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Great Hotel in good location. Friendly staff who are always welcoming. Our group have used this Hotel for several years now and we are always happy with the service, food and accommodation. The only downside is that if you have any mobility problems the hotel is on a steep incline.
