“5 star hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2010

I travelled with a group of guys for my sons stag weekend and was really pleased with the friendliness and patience of the staff and owners of the hotel, even when there were a couple of perhaps typical stag problems {fire extinguishers going off {don't do it at it's costly} etc, Meg and the staff handled the situation perfectly being straight to the point and understanding the reason for the weekend.
The hotel is basic but clean and the rooms were cleaned and tidied each day, proximity to the city centre is only a short 10 minute walk so it's ideally placed for a trip.
The breakfasts were first class and if you wanted anything else there was no problem and your request was granted. {they even ironed my sons shirt }
I've stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world and I can honestly say that the staff at the hotel were the friendliest and most accomodating to your needs.
If your used to spa hotels and marble toilets it's probably not for you but the hotels clean, friendly, near the city and accomodating for a weekend away with the lads or the girls.

Before i start you need to dismiss the majority of rubbish that has been written about this hotel on here, Its no 5star dripping in gold hotel but...........at £25 a night its spot on! if you want gold go and pay £85 a night in the centre. No i probably wouldnt take me missis there for a romantic weekend but would i go with a group yes......Definatly! in fact next one is already being arranged. Being the Bestman it was my duty to find some digs for nearly 25 of us for a weekend so having booked this place and reading the reviews on here i was expecting the worse! by the time we had checked in met the owner and got ready everybody had said "Spot on this place"! its a quick ten min walk to first set of pubs (Luckies on corner) then as you walk into the centre theres pubs all the way down so expect to be drunk even before you get into the centre! One thing i would say is on the way back from a night out visit "Munchies" next to Luckies for your pizza or kebab its like being back in a nightclub! the hotel has a Cafe built in to it serving a massive menu and breakfast in a morning was just right! only thing this place is lacking is a bar! but Meg is trying to sort this! all in all we all (25) enjoyed this hotel! see you next year!

from the word go when I arrived,I should have said to the taxi driver to drive on,The place was stinking the owner even let her dog urinate right outside the entrance of the guest house, The smell of cheap bleach was rotten all over the place ,We never even got offered a breakfast even though we paid for it, and where up in time for breakfast,If I was to sum it up in one word it would have to be DUMP

Ok where to start......rooms are ok i guess, see how many beds they can fit in one room!!! bathroom was very basic bed was ok, big group of us over-priced for the rooms really. Breakfast ok...2nd day I was there the beans were cold and the bread was off... would rather had a fry up in a proper cafe and pay the extra to enjoy it more

Good walk into town which was the best thing about it

The lady at the hotel was very friendly, i stayed with 6 friends for a 21st. Basic room with beds and TV, but we would not have wanted to stay more than one night! It is ok if you are after a cheap hotel to stay in and your going out, but not if you are after luxury and comfort! overall hotel was average!

i found the hotel to be great value for money. it isnt the ritz, granted. but you get what you pay for.
for your money you get very friendly service, a decent room with bed, tv, a shower, and a great breakfast in the morning.
i stayed for nights in october for a stag weekend, we had a great time.
the hotel is within walking distance of the centre too, so you dont need to get a taxi.
we were made to feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble, and the price is very reasonable.
