    • Disliked: Amenities

    Room was just ok, was clean but a bit tatty, very loud water pipe noise when next door room flushed their loo. No soap only shower gel. Internet details given in the room did not match to any service available, so unable to use it. Went for breakfast at arranged time of 9.00am to find room locked and nobody in sight! Didn't turn up until 9.20, breakfast was very good when we did get it. Whole place could do with a tidy up. But on the whole not too bad.

    Tired and dated

    Arrival and check-in were pleasant and I was shown to my room with a jug of fresh milk and cold water; good start I thought. The room was very hot (however it was an exceptionally hot that week)but there was no offer of a fan. The room decoration was a little dated, however it was the bed with no headboard, lumpy pillows and broken draw fronts at the bottom and the rentokil box that really put me off. Despite the appearance of a tin of tea bags and there was only teabag in the tin! The evening meal was pleasant, however breakfast was a disappointment. The display of Aldi cereal and £1 carton of orange juice was too much like having breakfast at home to charge £85 per night for. I have nothing against budget supermarket food, however I would expect more from a B&B or at least the investment in some containers to offer better presentation.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    We had high hopes for staying here, unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations. Room was large enough but every thing a bit old and worn out. Bleach stain on chair, marks on the walls, rusty towel rail, toiletries open and half empty . Asked if we could arrange an early breakfast but no-one turned up .

    It is in a lovely setting. But standards have clearly been allowed to lapse over a long period of time, and it shows. Although the staff were welcoming and friendly, there were sticky stains on bedside tables, no loo seat, no soap, and one bed was supported by a book to replace a missing leg. The chrome towel rail in the bathroom (a 'wet room') was so rusty that one leg had entirely been eaten away at the base. Tea and coffee were supposed to be provided in the room; there was about a tablespoon of coffee in the jar supplied, so old that it had congealed. In the dining room, all the chairs were originally covered by a shiny fabric; it has now worn away in patches all over, much like mange. The outdoor areas were messy and untidy. A general feeling of hanging on by the fingernails.
