Visited the Griffin for a Saturday date night yesterday and we were not disappointed! We had the lobster and tomahawk sharer, great value at £60! And Fraya our waitress was very attentive, absolutely spot on!

Firstly I’d like to say ‘Will’ is an asset to this company. He’s so friendly and happy to help. Always straight to it with a smile. In regards to my stay, the room was spot-on for what I needed. I needed a comfy bed, a clean room, a place to make a cup of tea and a bathroom with a nice shower and that’s exactly what I got. Don’t get me wrong there are things that can be updated – for example, the floor creeks in room eight quite a lot but it doesn’t really bother me and the overall look could be updated but that doesn’t stop me staying here or having a pleasant time. I will say my only bugbear was that there was no plug right next to the bed and there was no breakfast but again it didn’t bother me too much. I went downstairs for food both evenings and it was amazing. I highly recommend the lamb rump steak and the fish and chips. The service is quick, and friendly and even in busy times when they look rushed off their feet they always checked in to make sure we were okay or if we needed anything else. I don’t really understand the other reviews that are incredibly negative regarding this place but each person has their own opinion. The staff were friendly, the room was a nice quiet place for me to rest my head and I felt safe. I was in room eight at the end of the building and there was a football match on on my second night and after 10 pm I couldn’t hear a single thing. The only noises I ever did hear were people using the toilet in another room or talking really loudly but again that wasn’t that often and it didn’t bother me. If you’re going for a luxury hotel this isn’t for you but if you’re going for friendly, quiet, comfortable and simple that is the perfect stop. I’d quite happily go back again and stay overnight again. And I’m a female on my own for work. Thanks Griffin Inn - you are great!!

From entering and not having anyone to book me in, to placing an order for dinner and they brought me the wrong thing, then a security scanner on the doors hanging off , to bulbs missing in lamps, drawers missing and finally my room door wouldn't close properly so I had to pile my bags against it on a night to feel safe and secure as a single female guest. This experience overall was very poor. Plus side is staff were lovely and the place was clean and tidy but my goodness it needs some money spending on it. No breakfast offered either , just so you know.

I booked two nights - paid over a week in advance at this hotel. I checked in and joked with with Will that no doubt the room key won’t work tomorrow (it never does). When I returned second night the room had been given to another. Mr O’Shea rummaged through all my belongings which of course were still in the room. I was evicted and had to face the prospect of sleeping in my car. Luckily I managed to book another hotel. To date no apology or refund and still waiting for Steve the manager to respond. Shocking!
