“Needs a face lift”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

This place could be a lot nicer. But as a place for a guy to crash after a night out it was good enough... Just. Wouldn't take my partner! Is one thing being budget but though the bedding & towels were fresh, the fog of cigarette smoke in the corridor barely disguised the smell of damp on the stairs.

Next time I'll probably just pay more for a better place.

Well where to start!!!!!!

I attended a party at The Old Mill last night. First thing was the cold. It was freezing in the main hall. People ordered wine ( which was watered down ) and when friends tried to complain to the EXTREMELY RUDE manageress they were shot down in flames. The meal was ok.
The last straw was when the ladies toilets backed up and water started pouring through the function room ceiling directly above our table. we knew then that it was time to call it a night.
I can safely say I will NEVER EVER be visiting there again.
Very disappointed to say the least :(((

Just back from my christmas party night and i must say it was amazing value for money !!! Yes ok the toilets broke (out of the staffs hands as someones at the party night smashed the toilet which caused floods) however we had a ball of a night !! 3 course meal & 3 hunky strippers all for 20 quid !!! Ppl were complaining to staff reguarding these toilets !!! They opened up the rooms they had avaliable and the toilets were spotless !!! The staff were fantastic & very helpful !!! Even got the sassy boys to stay on later to make up for the whole toilet fiasco !!! Overall a great night !!! Some ppl need to realise you get what you pay for & i must say we all got more than our moneys worth !!! WELL IN THE OLD MILL !!! Il defo be back again next year :-)

I recently attended a party at this venue and to have to say that the whole experience was terrible. The ladies toilets are a dangerous place to visit with none if the taps working so you can was your hands and the flooring very uneven and without warning of steps and slopping floors. The staff wre rude and vrry unhelpful.

Recently stayed here for two nights on a business trip and I thoroughly regret it! On arrival I was told that they have no working kitchen at the moment and therefor would be no meals. The room was freezing, not clean and even the basics weren't good enough (broken kettle and no hand soap etc in bathroom). Beds were really uncomfortable, walls paper thin and the whole building has an awful damp/old smell.

Cannot think of a positive to say apart from the fact I was glad to leave!

My husband and myself have stayed at this hotel numerous times. We have never had any problems. This time there was a problem with the hot water in the room we had when we reported it we where moved to an other room without delay. The hotel itself is currently undergoing a lot of refurbishment BUT that will only make a good little hotel a great little hotel dont listen to the moaners go see for yourself then judge it

Room Tip: room 11 is great its away from the function room so it very peaceful

Beautiful quiet surroundings to this hotel although at the back of a housing estate, walk into the hotel garden and you are beside the river with a beautiful waterfall. Price for room only is fantastic, with different food restaurants only 10-15 minutes walk away, and would definitely return again for longer period.

Room Tip: Although noise from waterfall on river beside hotel is noisy, it is well worth it for the beautiful...
