Date of stay: May 2021Trip type: Travelled as a couple
I rarely give a bad review but unfortunately have to write one for this establishment
The building is in need of TLC and perhaps some air fresheners as the odour emanating from
The corridors and bedrooms absolutely nauseating.
We were to feel very uncomfortable when we decided to consume our own beverage rather than purchase from the over stocked bar. It’s a guest house!!!!
The beds were comfortable but not sure it was the quality of the mattress or noxious smells which was that of dog, septic tank or both
To make it worse the prices charged were outrageous when compared with where we stayed the next night which was welcoming , clean and modern. Perhaps the owners should go and visit the competition
We call this place farty towers
Room Tip: Take an air freshner

Im terrably sorry you didnt enjoy your stay, we endevour to make everyone comfortable and welcome and have hundreds of reviews that say this. We do have a dog but he is not allowed in the guest part of the house so i dont know how you might have known of him. Our bar is well stocked we have over 200 single malt whiskies and a huge selection of Gins and Spirits but these are well under the prices of the local hotels. We dont mind guests drinking in their rooms but as licensed premises we do not allow guests to consume their own food and drink in our bar and resteraunt areas. I dont know of any establishments that do. Still sorry you had a bad experience Jon Freeman (owner)
