Worst Break ever
Our room was very disappointing, The toilet basin was loose from the wall & leaking. The radiator we wasn't able to turn off & the weather was lovely and hot 17th & 18th Sept. We were banking, This was mention to the manager first thing in the morning.They did try & get there handy man in but no answer to his phone. second night even hotter didnt get much sleep both night, woke up in morning feeling very sick, The window was open & there was so much rubbish just outside the window that could have been cleared away. We didn't stay for breakfast due to us feeling unwell. I telephoned the manager later that day (Kirsty) & complained I said it wasn't expectable to let that Room 10 & I believe we needed so sort of a refund. Kirsty agreed & said that she would have to speak to the owner & would call me back, Guess what Kirsty didn't return my call so I call again - Kirsty said that The Black Horse wasn't letting out the Room on the 18th. She agreed that we should have a refund, But still hadn't seen the owner, Ha still wanting for that call its gone TWO WEEKS - And no call .

Disorganised chaos
Complete shambles the self check in didn’t work also had no emails to guide through the process upon arrival.eventually gained access The room I was finally allocated wasn’t cleaned dirty bathroom,bed not changed,bins not emptied etc telephoned the number on the desk and complained a very angry woman who was very rude arrived to clean the room thoroughly eventually got to bed after midnight!! The third night I was awakened by a stranger opening my door via a digital key code and entering turning on all the lights telling me I was in her room and I had to leave because she had booked and been allocated it!!! Was promised a refund and receipt and so far nothing My advice is DO NOT STAY HERE !!!!!
