“Simply awful!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Daylight robbery. Tiny filthy room, stained carpets, stained walls, bathroom stinks of mildew, dark and dingy. Bed sheets were clean and bed very comfortable. Thats the only positive i can say sadly. Staff dont seem to care. Worst hotel ive stayed in by some margin.

“Needs improvement”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We ate at this restaurant as it has been advertised under new management and as we are local thought we would give it a try. I am not sure what the state of management is as the 'previous owner' came in and helped himself to a drink behind the bar - who knows! The food was basic pub food, which would be good if flavourful but it was not. The Thai food they used to have there was much better! The wine tasted cheap. I think this could be a great place but they need to improve the food and drinks to get the locals to want to eat and drink there - oh and don't bother with the cocktails - trust me when I say they were awful.

“Ok for a night.”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stayed as a couple for the night.. When we arrived our welcome was nice enough we went up to our room and were impressed by the initial look.. We were taken away by the size of the jacuzzi bath and thought the bed looked fab.. Taking a closer look the walls need a good paint and the dust on the curtains surrounding the 4 poster bed were less than appealing as well as a stain on the sheet! Be careful.
During the evening we received a knock to the door from the owner who had come to collect some clothing from the wardrobe within the room as they had moved an older couple earlier on in the day for our visit and the house keepers had not removed the clothes. We found this irritating.
We then had another knock to the door first thing as there was a car blocked in which wasn't anything to do with us again rather irritating.
Overall it's a lovely quaint hotel just needs a lick of paint and a dust!

“Average”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

We stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights at the end of April. There was good and bad point with this hotel. The good bits was that there is friendly staff and the food was good and not to expensive.
The bad bits are that the photos are very misleading, there is hardly any parking space, the room has cracks in the walls, theres Puddles of water in the bath room which there must be a leak, the rooms are very cold, the roof in the restraunt looks like its going to fall down and to top it off, we heard that the manager "HACKS" into this website to take any bad reviews off so I'm guessing this review could be deleted off the system any time.
Also the website states that the rooms has been refurbished but rooms with windows which let the cold and damp in and cracks in the walls doesn't tell me the rooms are refurbished. It may of been refurbished 50 years ago but not any time recently.

“Great Weekend Break”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

We stayed from the 30th March until today (1st April) 2012, the food is delicious, the staff warm, welcoming, the hotel cosy, clean and intimate. The bedroom was clean we had room 8 the honeymoon suite and the en suite Jacuzzi bathroom was simply beautiful. we were very close to the high street, the food prices were great value, the drinks decent prices especially if you are there at happy hour. the courtyard was relaxing and we wished we could of stayed longer. A lovely weekend break we enjoyed ourselves so much that we are coming back soon
