“Girls night out Amanda's birthday!”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Was worried after reading reviews. Booked this as a cheap place to lay our heads on a girls night out. No frills, basic but did the job. The main selling point was the landlord Paul, a top guy! He bent over backwards to make sure our stay was good, he looked after us, stayed up until we all got home (3.30am) in my case and provided us with shots. Would definitely go back there, just to see him. Thanks paul for a brill night.

I have to disagree with previous, picky reviewers, i stayed at this b&b with my husband a few weeks ago, the rooms are basic but are clean and cannot fault the owner Paul, any question or request we had he tried his upmost to fulfill. We had a great time at the b&b and round town at night.

Guy doesn't care about the place. By his own omission said he was drunk when he bought it, called the rooms s***!
Window fell off his hinge, room stunk everything the previous reviewer said is completely true! Only stayed as we were a group of 20 but never again! Rather have separate hotels!

This place is shocking! It's filthy and my room stank of stale smoke! I had constant flies and could here people use the toilet, poo wee and vomit! The bed was like a concentration camp, just springs I had bed sores! The tv made a bizarre buzzing sound when on and the bedding looked like it had not been washed since it had been bought sometime in the 1980's! The place has holes all over the walls and wallpaper peeling off the walls. The shower was always cold and I am sure someone had urinated in the shower, also the towels smelt and were filthy dirty. I feel bad for saying these things but the room really had not been cleaned in a long long time and the whole place smelt like old fried food and stale cigarettes - I'll need to wash myself and all my clothes lots after this stay, defiantly a place only for the stag do drunks who will not notice the  dirty decor  :-( 

While writing this review I killed a couple of flies, only for another to appear!
