Very clean rooms. Very warm. Everthing we needed in rooms for the one night stay. Shower,tv, tea and coffee making. Could do with a make-over. Corridors smelt very damp but rooms fine. Good breakfast. Good location for many attractions.

Excellent refurbishment, friendly and welcoming, clean and colourful. Drink prices are far too high and food does not taste great. Carling tastes watered down, soft drinks are full of sugar. Food is greasy and over salted, healthy options are hard to find.

Do yourself a favour - invest more money and stay in the holiday inn or premier inn. This "hotel" is the most disgusting, dirty, smelly, vile place I have ever stayed. The carpets are stained, the walls are dirty, the towels are not fresh and the toilets had c*rap in them!! Dont stay here at all

It feels like the hotel rooms are just an add on to the pub, and the pub/restaurant i where all the investment is. The bar and restaurant are nice and welcome, but the rooms aren't. We had 3 rooms for our party, and every one of them was dirty and smelled musty. One room still had faeces in the toilet....

It is what u pay for. Staff are great hotel could do with a refurb but the beds and comfy and the sheets are clean. Rooms are a little dated but for the price you can't go wrong. Food is good at very good prices

Stayed here for one night over the weekend whilst visiting family. Unfortunately didn't read reviews before booking otherwise would never have stayed. I'm pretty much going to be echoing everything that has already been said. No-one on reception on arrival, damp musty smelling building, no soap in the bathroom and terrible mould/mildew in the bathroom. Was pretty disgusted as we...

Stayed here for a night as we needed to be at an event in the area the next morning. Firstly, there was nobody on reception, we had to ring from a battered old desk phone through to the bar for assistance, this took 20 minutes. Then when we got to the room, it was roasting hot, carpets were ripped and...

I booked this hotel as a budget stopover whilst working in the area. The hotel was in need of some maintenance, that at relatively low cost, could make a significant difference to the accommodation. For example, there was a smell of dampness in the room when I arrived. It became apparent when taking a shower what the cause of this...
