A dirty, damp, disorganised, dangerous doss hole. Avoid at all costs!!!! Door left unlocked all day and night. No reception or responsible personnel present. Staff drinking with residents all night... arguing from 4-6 am. Needed Police help to calm situation. What a fiasco!!!!!!

Stayed there for Harrogate show. First day they didn't clean the room because they didn't have second key to enter the room. The bathroom was leaking, water dripped from the celling from upstairs. The floor was damp, the TV was not working, the heater was not working. The only good thing about this B&B was the staffs were very friendly.

This was easily the worst experience I've ever had! No-one to greet me, just a grubby phone to ring. Eventually a Polish teenager in a grimy tracksuit ambled in from the road and proceeded to take my money and put me in the wrong room. the door of this room didn't lock and I was on the loo when he...

I made the same mistake as others and not looked on this site for reviews before booking through Booking.com. It is a shambles with inedible breakfasts, staff who can hardly speak english if at all and I am talking about Management downwards and is the worst place i have ever stayed in. I will not use Booking.com again either who...

Had the pleasure of staying in this dump for 2 nights - you get what you pay for! To be fair the bed was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was nice. The decor is something else - really, really dated - just in this day and age not acceptable. The grass was definetely greener on the other side -...

This Bed and breakfast hotel is quite bad. The rooms smell, the floors were stained and the we had to wait ages for the staff to arrive to show us to our room. However the breakfast was actually good, they do cooked breakfast and cereal. I would not recommend staying here, it's probably worth staying somewhere else for a bit...

This place was like a scene from faulty towers! Staff didn't speak a word of English, room was smelly, carpets were stained, light fittings were dodgy! (Dangerous) room was dusty, cold, damp walls, toilet door was hanging off! The only good thing I have to say about this place is the location! I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE!

Stayed here recently for two nights. On arrival, there was no one there to check us in. We used a telephone on the reception to call the manager and waited for about ten minutes in the foyer for him to arrive from a sister hotel. On arrival there was no explanation or apology, just quietness and he took our details...
