Stayed here on a hen night and didn't know where I was staying till I got there. The hotel is attached to a takeaway/ cafe and as soon as we walked in, the smell of grease was unreal. The bedding was clean but the room was old and dirty and not worth £30 a night. The breakfast was ok, but...

This is cheaper per night than...

We made the mistake of having lunch at this terrible excuse for a cafe, purchasing the special offer fish and chips. Now I consider 'special offer' to mean you get the normal good products for a lower price because it is on offer, was I wrong...it means they have some really cheap small fish they keep for this specific purpose...
