My girlfriend reckons that "it needs to be torn down and re-built". The rooms are incredibly basic, with a tiny, old fashioned TV that was unwatcheable.

The walls needed repainting and the door had, at some... More

Went in to have cup of tea. Proceeded straight to bathroom with my 2 yr old son. Yelled at my female staff behind bar that toilets were closed. Proceeded to use toilet anyway as 2 yr old don't wait, verbally abused by this staff member coming out of toilet, needless to say I didn't stay for tea. Never so shocked,... More

Booked this hotel for a 2 night stay with a friend. I made the reservation over the phone and was told that the bill would be pre-authorized on my card.

Booked hotel for stag party. On booking was not informed of one week cancellation policy. Had to cancel with over 48 hours notice. Credit card was charged for rooms and paintballing session. Management were ignorant and unpleasant. Needless to say never saw my money again. BE WARNED
