Reviewed 7 March 2016

on arrival the hotel smelt foisty when door was opened , we left bagges and checked in later, the owner had sprayed air freshner to mask the smell of foist.the owner was dressed very shabbily , very damaged top and tracky bottoms just asked if i could pay cash,.i didnt want t o be left with no where to stay so paid . the rooms were very diry couldnt use shower as filthy , the carpets needed cleaning , and room generally very old fashioned, tv is very dated, we couldnt get it to work the proprieter son got it working then it went off, this was disoppointing as my mum likes to watch tv prior to sleeping, the room was freezing we had to ask for heating to be put on , and when i tried to lock the door i was told there was a knack, id never go back to this hotel again, the lounge was filthy and cluttered, bath towels were all damaged and raggy, i d never use them , looked like they havent even been washed

Room Tip: dont go to the top room as has three sets of steps , very steep , no bath in room just dirty show...

Friendly owners but the place needs a revamp/shutting down, family run hotel, you can tell that by the kids running round the bar, using the bar area as there sitting room, reminded me of "The royal family", not funny though
Will not stay here again, very poor value at £55 night, room only

Room Tip: Don't bother with a room, sleep on the beech if it's warm enough

Reviews I had read about this hotel were good so we were very disappointed with what we experienced. The gentleman that dealt with us was friendly enough but to be honest the place is a mess, inside and out. Carpets were dirty in the hall and in our room. There was a dog and cat wandering about everywhere which to me would put most guests off! The room was not very clean, the wallpaper was coming off, hairs on the beds, (pet hairs I believe) TV did not work at all also. We were back in early as our son was not feeling well, unfortunately the .. BAR... That they have had next to nothing in it so we could not even enjoy a couple of drinks! Really poor experience .
