Holroyd Arms

Reviewed 30 June 2016 via mobile

This place was disgusting. Filthy dust everywhere the bathroom was so dirty with mould growing everywhere. There was old chewed chewing gum stuck to the walls the beds were covered in stains and full of bed bugs Iv come home covered in massive bites. I would not advise this place to anyone it needs to be seen and closed down

Stayed: June 2016

Booked here due to it being close to the University.
I wish there was a rating less than 1 for this place as its not fair to the b and b's that genuinely deserve 1. Absolutely filthy. If I hadn't had an important conference at the uni the next day I would have found somewhere else. There was food on the floor hairs in the bed and the bathroom hadn't been cleaned for a while. When I left in the morning they had put a note outside the room next door saying we cant do breakfast in the morning but there's a cafe a mile down the road you can use. This sort of place shouldn't be allowed. Also I couldn't see that there was any heating in the room?

Most enjoyable stay, after a hard days work the Holroyd Arms is just what you need. friendly atmosphere, bar staff welcoming and on the ball, food excellent wide variety with large portions not forgetting perfectly cooked. also special's Monday 2 for £10 Tuesday burger and pint, Wednesday Curry and pint, Thursday steak night all for £7.50

Rooms are clean all with en-suites, beds comfortable and the television was better than mine at home. Free tea and coffee in the rooms (filled up daily) and not forgetting FREE WIFI

The room matched very well with the value of the money that I paid for. There is nothing to complain about the bed and the bedding. I was very comfortable with them. However, I wonder if the hotel attendants checked the tea/coffee making utensils prior to my occupancy. The kettle has dust which seemed to have piled up for days if not weeks or months. Also, the mugs had not been cleaned since the previous users. If the policy is that users should clean these utensils before checking out, then there should be a notice in the rooms indicating so, but I doubt if this can effectively be implemented.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Let me introduce myself My name is Andrew and i am the new owner of the Holroyd arms,i have worked here for the previous 3 years as a manager where my hands were firmly tied behind my back where making improvements to the business were concerned. as of October 2014 i became the owner of the business and have made massive strides in making customers visits here more enjoyable,i have addressed most of the issues raised on Trip advisor and am continuing to raise the standards throughout the business,that being said some of t6he reviews placed on this site are way over the top with their critic. If you need a clean,warm and comfortable nights stay for a small budget then we are your destination choice,we are a 2 star rated business and dont claim to be anything but that,but just because of our rating it dose not mean we dont make every effort to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Unfortunately this platform is mainly used by customers who are inclined to complain,we are fully booked week after week and the percentage of complaints to non complaints is about 5% if all our happy customers were to write reviews i wouldnt need to justify myself. So please dont be put off by the old reviews on this site and see for yourselves THE HOLROYD ARMS is a pleasant B&B. ANDREW ... more   less
