1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Awful, arrived around 2100 to a gent sat outside with 6 pints lined up to himself and the place all locked up. Eventually told by passers by to try the side entrance, phoned the number and eventually got in. Check in was ok. Got to my room which absolutely stunk, the smell was of cooking fats and incredible strong. Curtains didn’t fit the windows, paint peeling off the walls…. Never again! The smell was so bad I couldn’t face breakfast by the morning so left ASAP!

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This hotel after discovering we could not come for the weekend ( due to government lockdown restrictions) not because we didn’t want to. Refused to answer our calls, Informed they would ring and discuss this with us directly and didn’t. I rang everyday pleading for them to discuss even a penalty for not attending or a voucher for future stay. They still ignored all our phone and email messages. Ignored attempt to communicate as well. Very unprofessional, uncaring and unhelpful. They have finally refused us a refund without any reason or communication. Would they rather we came illegally and against government instructions?? Horrible unprofessional hotel and not worthy of customers. We are considering taking illegal action

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
The location is good, the price is reasonable, and Josh who runs reception is great. We didn't notice the "dog friendly" listing when we booked but the resident huskies are friendly and placid, and are no more than a trip hazard in reception. However, you should expect to encounter multiple guests' dogs throughout, including in the dining room during meals. Book if you're happy with dogs ruling the roost.
