Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely disgusting accommodation. Bedrooms with no windows with 36’c heat and no air con in the year 2022 !

When you phone up, a rude woman from the pub, who wasn’t helpful at all, saying - well there’s a fan & there’s nothing I can do as we are fully booked!
What is that going to do with the weather that we are having !!

Disgusting accommodation that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone, even someone I disliked!

My poor sons have wasted £55 on a glorified cupboard.

Certainly will be taking this further 😡

The room smelt really strongly of bleach upon arrival, I opened the bathroom window but it didn't help much. I'm awful at confrontation so I tried to tough it out, woke up in the morning with a major headache and a burning sensation in my eyes. I tried to contact them before leaving to let them know that the room smelt too strongly of bleach (after some research I'm pretty worried it's a dangerous health concern), no one was around to chat to and no one picked up the phone when I called (this was at 10:20am). I left a message but no one has gotten back to me yet. Given how awful my head and eyes still feel I'm feeling pretty duped having paid 50 pounds to stay there for the night. The shower was also still pretty moldy despite the use of bleach, I wish I'd thought to take photos.

In good news the dinner they served as part of the room deal was really yum, it just doesn't make up for how strongly the room smelt of bleach of my inability to contact them about it the next day before leaving.

Stopped here for 2 nights, i wouldn't even let my dog sleep here!
Foul sewer smell hits you when you walk in, dirty sheets, blood on the pillowcase, lamp dosent work, broken shower, smears up the wall, just filthy in general. Cant even have a cupper as the kettle is minging inside and covered in dust.
The price you are charging dosent justify the room. Would never stop here again.

Overpriced and undermanaged. VERY unhelpful staff. Booked 1 night stay costing £170 expectations for that price were high. The room was in a courtyard of a pub where there were lots of people partying and a live band.There were stains on the duvet covers. A bad sewage smell inside.The only window in the room would not close and there was a barbeque alight very near the window. People everywhere outside the room. We handed back the key and said we could not stay in the room. The lady who we gave the key to behind the bar kind of apologised then moved on to serve the next customer without trying to resolve or even ask what the problem was. When we were able to, we called to complain and the lady we spoke to said that she had not been made aware of the issue at the time and basically there was nothing she was prepared to do for us and to complain to booking.com as we had booked the room through them. I am thoroughly disgusted with this unfriendly, unhelpful customer service.

Stayed here for 4 days, in all honesty I was tempted on first sight to forgo my first night’s charge and walk away but on a tight budget and couldn’t really afford to do that. Firstly, this is not a bed and breakfast it’s a bed and evening meal which starts at 7pm and finishes at 8.30pm or thereabouts.

The entrance to the building is through a forecourt where you may be able to park your car, I would advise against this, you may get your car damaged or indeed blocked in, on the first morning I was awoken at 5.00am to move my car so a truck could get out, not enjoyable in the freezing cold.

There is no reception at the actual accommodation if you can call it that, the public house is the reception, anyway onto fist impressions, horrible place, marks on the carpet, a small wardrobe that you could not hang a shirt, trousers, suit or anything in for that matter. The electrical points, well an extension lead 2-way, 1 way really as one of the plug sockets did not work.

Two double beds, one with a shaky headboard that was relatively useless, more about that later. Bathroom was filthy, urine marks on the rim of the bath, excrement left in the actual bowl, along with excrement splattered in various parts of the bowl, the shower head was growing some form of organism as was the toilet brush and the toilet brush holder, there was black mold around the base of the shower, and basically it was filthy and unhygienic.

The heated towel rail, was not on, so I turned it on, became warm then leaked and started to flood the bathroom, I turned this off and left it well alone. The wash basin, not particularly clean, no hot water throughout my stay, even if you decided to wash using the basin you would bang your head on the shelf, I washed in cold water.

Back to the bed with the shaky/loose headboard, I decided to sleep in this bed on my first night, closer to the radiator, however after enduring the headboard banging for a while I noticed that the linen smelt very strongly of sweat, I truly believe the linen had not been changed from the previous guest or guests !, I vacated this bed and moved to the other, this was relatively comfortable, forget about using the bed drawers they are broken beyond repair.
Worth mentioning at this point that the sheets were never changed and the towels only got changed after a 2-day cycle even if they were soaked and placed in the shower bowl for removal/cleaning and replacement. Also, the towels smelt awful best described as a kitchen fat smell, awful, not to mention the marks on the towels, quite disgusting to be truthful.

The whole room smelt of dirty water throughout my stay, I purchased an aromatic spray from the co-op which kept the stench at bay for a while.

Out of the 4 nights I stayed in this place I was awoken by smokers in the garden shouting and laughing, smokers sometimes under my window doing the same, riotous activities along the corridors when they returned the worse for wear from the public house, elongated shouting in the adjoining rooms and in all anti-social behavior so never had a complete night’s sleep.

On 2 nights I had to approach the Staff in the pub to get access to my room simply because the courtyard entrance was locked, they did supply a pass code on my arrival, but the lighting in the courtyard was so poor I couldn’t see the numbers in any case, on each occasion the Staff were astounded if not amazed the door was closed and secured.

As previously mentioned, I did eat in the Public house the one night and the food was quite acceptable, turkey with veg and mash, gravy, typical pub food but quite good. However, due to the filthy room I had grave concerns that this lack of hygiene may be inherent in the Public house itself so decided not to eat in there again, and took great care in regards what I touched in the room, without been melodramatic I truly believe there are public health issues hear and without a doubt a risk to guests wellbeing, I am contemplating seeking advice on this from Public health.

The Coffee tray situated in the useless wardrobe was filthy, covered in splatters of coffee, no tea !!, bizarre, too much trouble perhaps, the spoons were filthy and stained, the mugs likewise, the kettle was in a disgusting state with large amounts of limescale at the spout, lid and within the kettle itself, I did not drink from the mugs throughout my stay, really dirty.

The shutters in the bathroom, the ability to close the shutters was not there, broken, the only way to close them was to manually move them, else people in the courtyard could see you having a shower or using the lavatory, some of the slats were broken too. Just to mention as well in the bedroom the little curtain provided was not fit for purpose, short by four inches or so, didn’t close the curtains in case it fell down.

I could go on and on really, photographs taken of all of the above complaints and more than happy to share with whoever may decide to commit to the awful place, my advice, do not stop here unless you want to feel unclean and living in comparative squalor.

This place is not for business people or any other human being, it is grossly overpriced for what it is, at £60.00 per night it is nothing more than daylight robbery. Stayed in several B&B’s locally some at £50.00 per night they were delightful. Would I stay here again ?, most certainly not, dirty, unhygienic and disgusting, so happy to escape, never to return.

Decent price. Fairly standard double room. Friendly staff x 3.
Room could have been warmer on arrival but I booked the room very last minute and so the radiators in that particular room were only turned on once I had booked direct. Kinda makes sense as you wouldn't want to be heating a room if no one is in there.
On site parking made it a bit easier to get up and go.
Whilst I wouldn't recommend to friends or family, I would recommend to business folk that have a last minute meeting nearby. A comfy bed at a decent price with no extra fuss.
