Room needed a lot of tlc
We had a good size room with a separate lounge area. Unfortunately the bedroom window was screwed shut so we could not open it. The whole room and especially the bathroom was in need of modernisation. As the premises was on the main road it was quite noisy even at night so if you are a light sleeper like me it will not be for you. It was not all bad though, the staff were friendly and the breakfast was very good. Plenty of parking. However because of the poor condition I would not recommend.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property had been repossessed. I had no email from you or the hotel and didn't find out till we got there. By that time it was to late to find another hotel so had to drive the 160 miles home. Was not impressed at all.

B&B from hell
Disgusting run down B &B. Big safety issues. Smoke alarm covered with a plastic bag. Mould and mildew everywhere. Dirty glasses in the bar. No toilet roll in the communal toilets down stairs. Breakfast was ok but slow service. Stained carpet in the bedroom. Ended up sleeping in my van with the dog. Noisy from road immediately outside.

Not a happy
I wouldn't even let my dogs stay in that hotel it needs to be inspected 1 fire exit was blocked by chairs , the hall way carpet up to the rooms was filthy And heavy stained The banisters , were lose , the carpets were a trip hazard ! The room a single was so dirty stains on carpet doors and frames and walls dirty , a radiator in the room was dirty the kettle was dirty , the tray with coffee etc teaspoon dirty opens carton of milk ! Now where to hang anything Onky a small cubotad with a couple of coat hangers the blind on the window was covers in dust ! On complaint I checked out after 20 mins I have asked for my money back ! How you can show a guest to such a dirty room is terrible ! Then to say it had been cleaned ! It's such a shame cause if was pulled up it would be a lovely place to stay ! Having said all that the bar area seemed ok !
