At my own peril I ignored the last review of this hotel in favor of the earlier and more optimistic offerings. Big mistake. I'm not sure what I did in a past life to warrant this last three nights experience except to say it must have been awful! The windows though large, only cracked open an inch or two and are so high off the ground you can’t actually see out of them so the rumored sweeping views remained just that. The closet upon being opened, expelled a putrid stench, its chronic disrepair was further evidenced by paint flakes and established mold formation. No toilet roll holder, instead a metal plate where a toilet roll holder should be. I guess this was at least a helpful marker for your eyes to roll down the wall to the unwashed floor where the near exhausted few sheets of remaining toilet paper apparently live (note to future guests; bring slippers, you’ll need them. I only had white socks but I wasn’t going to put my bare feet on the carpet or the bathroom linoleum and now my socks are ruined).No bedside lamps, just a dusty spider house for a light shade looming over the bed which, when switched on by yanking the light string startles you like a gestapo interrogation tactic. I went on my one of many visits to the front desk to inquire after a bedside lamp. On night one I asked for a whiskey and coke, the coke was flat. I asked for a fizzy replacement and the bar lady actually went to the pub next door to get me one, coming back saying they were busy and could she get me a different drink? I just requested a refund and took myself to the Royal Oak next door which was superior anyway in just about every respect. They were not serving breakfasts during my stay, citing seemingly arbitrarily designated Covid-19 restrictions. There were coffee making facilities in the room but the kettle was filthy inside and out so I didn’t use them (see picture) The shower was filthy with hairs, dust and grime (leading me to wonder exactly how long it had been since this room saw a disinfectant rag or claimed its last victim), with smeared and dirty shower doors. I went downstairs and had found a lovely lady, very accommodating (more than I can say for the room itself) who came up and apologized profusely, telling me the management had told her I wasn’t due until the day after (despite PLENTY of warning in fact about my arrival). I told her not to worry as it’s obvious it isn’t the staffs fault, it’s the managements. She offered to vacuum my floor, I said not to worry now as I was getting ready to go out. What I didn’t realize was that my room was not to receive turn down service at all for the entire duration of my stay. Given that we are in the midst of a global pandemic, the evident unwillingness or inability to maintain decent standards of hygiene can arguably be interpreted as negligence and utter lack of regard for guests.…
Went for a meal on Wednesday 26th August, Got seated at 6:15, by a peasant young girl, ordered our drinks, got them at 6:30, then finally took our order at 6:40. by then some more people arrived asking if anybody is cooking as its taking ages to get served. our starter came which was the worse prawn cocktail i have ever seen look like a 5 year old did it, no lemon or cutlery, my wife had garlic bread with cheese, that had no cheese on it.oh this was 7:15 and we were the first to arrive! when it got 8pm there was no sign of our meal, so we paid for what we owned a left. i feel sorry for the other dinners with children who had been waiting 1hr 45mins and still not had their starters.
We've stayed here before and had no problems, the staff were so lovely and accommodating which was why, when visiting family, we decided to book again. What a mistake. It has clearly been taken over by new staff. Seriously the worst nights sleep ever. Settled off but were woken by doors constantly opening and closing with people - staff - right outside our door having a heated conversation, not sure what about but when reminded that they had paying guests staying they finally went at around 2am. However, up until 4.30am we had constant strwam of doors opening and closing with people 'whispering '. An absolute disgrace of a way to run a business. We certainly will not return.
Room absolutely filthy doors to bathroom leaning against the bedroom door,stench from shower unbelievable, got moved to a room not much better but the service was amazing cant fault the staff seriously needs looking at
We stayed here for a weekend in April and it was a lovely little pub/ hotel. We ate in there a couple of times and it was lovely and all reasonably priced. The hotel rooms weren’t anything flash and maybe could be updated but we were happy with it in general. Very spacious and was exactly what we needed it for which was just a place to sleep as we were out during the days. It’s in a great location in a little village which is only a 10 minute drive from the main shops and university area.
