This place is well and truly described by many of the recent visitors. We booked two rooms at the last minute because it looked okay on the website. We arrived at 5pm and given the keys. We found the rooms were "made up" but under the covers were many unwelcome remnants from previous visitors. Both were pretty filthy and bathroom...

I booked this hotel for my wife's birthday and when we arrived at the hotel we were horrified at what we had walked into. The hotel was disgusting the man who gave us the key to the cell appeared to be drunk. The room was small and in need of a good clean the carpet was stained and had not...

Stayed here for 2 midweek nights with my lady. I booked a superior double room which was not cheap! Our room was a complete let down - the shower/wet room was dirty and was full of disgusting black mould. On our second day, and on returning from a long day walking, there was no hot water whatsoever so we had...

Unfortunately we did not read the reviews having stayed here many years previously. Big mistake, how standards have plummeted leaving us with nothing positive to add to this review other than to warn you to avoid at all costs. It is difficult to know where to start but we would concur with all environmental issues experienced in other reviews and...

This hotel is disgusting. Mould in the bathrooms, filthy carpets, walls and bedding. An absolute zest pit. I'm sure a YMCA or youth hostel would have better standards. Unfortunately we did not read trip advisor first, I'm kicking myself for not doing this as all the negative comments are so true. I'm so surprised that it's still running as a...

Place is in dire need of a refurbishment. Cobwebs and dust on windowsills, bathroom door wouldn't stay closed without locking it. King size bed was two singles put together. Plate at breakfast had crumbs all over it before we even used it. Room smelled musty and damp. Such a shame as we were expecting better. Wouldn't return again and wouldn't...

We stopped for a quick pint in the sunshine this weekend. It's got a medium size chilled, cobbled court yard which is a nice place to relax. The restaurant section looked very nice but was closed. The bar has limited selection and could do with a bit of a clean but does the job

This was the first time my Hubbie has booked a surprise and trust me the last time!! I read the reviews the night before we arrived and wanted to cry but with no refund available we went. On arrival it does not look appealing at all but ...... In the reception the owner does sit surrounded by empty glasses (2pm)...

We were the only people who stayed there that should have said something to me at the time! We had to ask for breakfast the guy was smoking cigarettes and called someone on the phone, they arrived 20mins later and then pointed to some bowls of cereal then disappeared. After 30mins I asked if we could have a cup of...
