Very homely feel to this accommodation. Everywhere was clean and plenty of provisions are provided such as feminine hygiene products in the shared bathrooms and tea and coffee facilities in the bedrooms. The decor is a bit dated and could use an overall but on the whole our 2 night stay was comfortable capped off with a nice full English...

Only stayed one night bed very comfy and pillows and duvet lovely n soft. Room quite small but ok for one night. Breakfast very good. Only disappointment was a musty shower room but this is due to no ventilation in there and a carpet. Manager very helpful and plans doing a refurb. Would stay again

Simon is a lovely host! We was late arriving due to trying to park and he waited for us to arrive with no pressure. The room was very comfortable. Breakfast was perfectly cooked too! Would definitely return and recommended to others!

I found this place on Tripadvisor and I have to say that I'm not disappointed ! for Tiny budget and funny lifestyle There 're 1 watercloset and 1 shower stall (where you can find lots of differents shower gel and shampoo) for the whole hotel. Breakfast is yummy and Simon, the owner is really nice and very helpful person

Thank You for your review, Its Peculiar that the Guests that book En-suite Rooms which are the vast Majority of the hotel are simply not using them and using the Shared Facilities instead!!

Visited for one night in September and found the manager to be very friendly and accommodating, breakfast was lovely. Rooms a little dated but very clean and tidy, worth the money that you pay. Towels and tea/ coffee making facilities available in our room as well as clean towels

It is very out dated and could do with a good make over and our room was extremely small on the top floor but, booking last minute we didn't expect much more, even though it was a struggle with an...

Thank you for your review, in Actual fact you were upgraded to a King size bed so you could have a room adjacent to your daughters, glad she liked the Birthday Banner and Balloons! You forgot to mention the Cups & Saucers you drank Coffee from were out of a Dolls House
