“Poor but could be better - lovely dog smashing staff especially at breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Felt so sorry for the manager. Obviously under a lot of stress, but the place needs one or two more staff and a good lick of paint. Manager constantly chasing his tail ( I found his keys left outside in the smoking area but when I returned them to him asking if they were his, he just said yes and rushed back to the bar never even said thank you vearing in mind I could have helped myself to stuff had I been so inclined). I would say the brewery need to support him much more before he has a breakdown. Nice man doing his best. For example:
It was a last minute booking therefore I telephoned to book but manager was serving behind the bar and just booked me in without discussing price or what I was paying for which meant I had to rely on the website for info. Wasn't expecting to stay over so needed to use credit card. Website stated accepted Mastercard but they didn't have the facility when I came to book out which caused me a few difficulteis. That's not the manager's fault and he could do without that sort of error to deal with.
However, for the price, apart from the pervading smell of damp it was okay. Compared to similarly priced establishments good service from the girls. reasonable breakfast but wouldn't go back as it is.

Basic accomodation, friendly staff, rooms okay, top covers on bed dirty but actual bedding smelt clean, very accomodating staff though nothing too much trouble. Probably okay for lads night out but i think the ladies would be a bit pickier.

While it was a central location the hotel was very basic. The bed, the bathroom etc was not clean at all, the milk you go with the room was year out of date. It is next to a chuch and the bells rang every hour and half hour, though the night. People were lovely though.

It's the details that let the Bee Hotel down - and when you've got a lot of details that need addressing, it all adds up to an unsatisfying stay. The furniture is a bit tired; there was a cigarette burn on my bed linen; the TV was so high up on a wall bracket that you would strain to watch it from any angle; and I really don't want to have to flush someone else's 'leavings' the first time I use the toilet.

The room was stuffy but I had to close the window because the pub beer garden - and a loud, rattly extractor fan - were outside. When I got up in the morning I had to make do with a bathroom that had no functioning fan or shaver light, with half a dozen mini bottles of shampoo but no shower gel. There is also a greasy smell about the place that I suppose is inevitable for somewhere that seems basically to be a locals' pub.

Still, it's cheap, and just about decent enough for a night's stay,
