4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Friendly welcoming
Unfortunately the hotel hadn’t got our booking from hotels.com but we’re able to accommodate us and upgraded us for the inconvenience. Really friendly staff. Not the most up to date decor but very clean and comfortable. Would stay again

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Lovely cosy hotel
The Douglas Arms hotel has just been taken over by a new owner recently. We found the owner and the staff to be very friendly and welcoming. They even went out of their way to prepare a special dish for me since I have food allergies. I stayed here with my children and they also loved it. The staff made us all feel welcome and also recommended local places to visit. The room was great, nice, big and warm. It is situated on the main street so it is in an excellent location, all the shops are a stones throw away. Highly recommend

Passing through —-overnight stay
Although we rated the room as terrible we never actually got as far as there,the hotel was disgusting it smelled of damp,and was dirty,we rang the bell at reception three times and still nobody appeared we had to go looking for staff on our way through what looked like the dinning room there was old carpet and rubbish lying in the middle of the floor eventually found someone who was abrupt and non-caring on telling him that we were less than happy on telling him refuse to stay he shrugged his shoulders and said as we never paid a deposit there would be no charge. We booked this establishment through Expedia thinking these hotels were rated by you,we understand that hotels have different ratings but in our opinion this place should not be on your site we have not used Expedia before and will not be using the site again
