Very Good8.0
Pleasant Stay
Slick checking in process - key boxes and no human contact. Worked well. I stayed in Room 9 which was comfortable and spacious with the added bonus of a view. Bathroom looked as if it had been refurbished. Would definitely stay again.

Nice cupboard
A very small room, glad I was on my own and only paid £30. They were obviously in the process of decorating but would have been nice to have been Informed.

Used to be great but......
Afraid to say this hotel is not the same as it was. Used to be run by a cheerful chap who couldn’t be more helpful. Made a nice breakfast too. Seems that he has sold up and now the hotel is self-service. Codes for the doors and boxes on the wall to collect a key. No longer any breakfast on offer at all. Such a shame as it used to be great value for money. I for one won’t be back again.

BEWARE - NEW owners - ratings front previous owner
BEWARE - NEW OWNER - RATINGS ARE FROM PREVIOUS OWNER - i have stayed here a few times with previous owner,it WAS friendly, comfortable and clean - I had to call to say I had arrived as no one was there to greet me, I then waited for Vicky to attuve to give my key. They have changed the old dining room into more bedrooms - I was informed they no longer do breakfast either which was advertised in details - I was also in the basement which was smelly,big hole in ceiling and very noisy electric box! The bathroom we separate and also I'm need of refurb. Their maintenance guy kept going into room next door making a racket! After am hour I tried to contact them to say I was booking in somewhere else but I had no reply - I ended up booking into another hotel and posting my key in box in hallway.

Bed and breakfast, but no breakfast available!!
Self check in at this hotel. Had paid for breakfast but there was no one available to provide any. When I phoned the hotel landline and mobile no one answered. I sent a text message asking about breakfast but they did not have the decency to answer. I have never had a 2 night stay ever where it was not possible to either meet or speak with the hoteliers. The worst bed and breakfast I have ever experienced. This hotel appears to be a con!! P. Marsden
