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.

Very Disappointed in our stay. Paid for the upgraded room with bath and was definitely not worth all the money. Toilet seat was loose, blind was broken, shower was cold in the morning, only 2 options available on the breakfast menu. Raised points when checking out with staff member and contacted via email, have yet to receive any response from property. Would not recommend.

Lovely and friendly and quick check in. Room modern decor but really cold and dusty. Nothing appears to be moved and dusted behind. Nice smellies in room on arrival. The windows are only single glazed hence the cold and at the front you can really hear the traffic from outside and the rattling grate people have mentioned in other reviews when cars drive over it - it’s no exaggeration! We ate there and had some drinks which were all really nice! I’d stay again overall.

Upon first impressions the room was of lovely decor, clean and albeit a lot smaller than the impression the photos give a decent enough room. However upon closer inspection we were left extremely disappointed by the standard. We booked this hotel wanting a luxury stay and it was far from this. We stayed in room 12, double room with a corner bath. A TINY corner bath, surrounded by damp and peeling wallpaper giving off a foisty smell you just can't avoid. The taps were giving both hot and cold water and wernt convenient at all. There was a lot of dust in the room. Lampshades, behind tables, plug sockets all covered. Towels were provided and ample amount of toiletries. The bed was clean and comfortable but to be perfectly honest this is where the good things stay. The toilet was cold, in the sink we found hair and tissue paper. The cups provided for teas and coffees had tea stains and lipstick still left on them, needless to say these were not used. The WiFi and TV had good reception. The hotel van be accessed by a bar downstairs until 11 at night at weekends, however after this the night entrance is a hazard waiting to happen. you have to walk along a main road, via a housing are and acces the hotel via very steep, metal stairs and enter with a key code. This isn't practical at all, the weather was very heavy rain and the steps were very slippy. To say we won't be returning here is fair and we have had better, more comfortable stays in a premier inn. Very disappointing!!! Not worth the money at all!!!

It’s a gorgeous place there’s no doubt but for an overnight stay it’s hugely impractical. Nowhere to put anything, The sunken small corner bath in the room looks lovely but without a shower in the bathroom it doesn’t really benefit, the room was really small and the bathroom walls made of paper. At breakfast there were no eggs so the menu choice was limited. Location is fantastic and I would have rated this much higher if I’d payed a lot less money but overall definitely not worth £140 for a very last minute room.

Stopped in for a New Year’s Eve lunch, attracted in by the quirky and amusing decor. The food was amazing, freshly prepared with great flavours and beautifully presented. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for, with some unusual variations on ‘the classics’ and a good range for everyone else too. We had attentive, but not intrusive, service. All in all a great experience! Highly recommended!

We didn’t stay at The Auction House but called in for drinks, we had great cocktails all hand made not out of a machine. Very friendly and polite staff! The place is nicely decorated and very clean. Would highly recommend.

The room we stayed in was tiny and right next to the night entrance. There wasn’t even floor space to open out an overnight case. It was dark with a small window, no wardrobe only a few hooks on the wall. The room had a small double bed and you could walk sideways around the bed to get around the room. The shower leaked all over the tiny bathroom and the sink was on top of your knees when you were on the toilet. At £150 a night I did not feel like the price matched the tiny room. We came in late after a wedding locally and the key pad to enter the code would not work for a long time so we were stood outside. This happened to a number of people as we could hear them banging on the door through the night. Location was good.

This is a really lovely place to stay. It is more than a few rooms above a bar. The whole place is well decorated and designed, with great things to see every where. We has a 4 poster room and it didn't disappoint at all. Lovely room, very comfy bed. Small bathroom but you don't spend long in there anyway. The staff were great really professional and friendly. I can't really fault it all. If I'm ever back in the area, this would be my first choice

Husband booked an overnight stay and bottomless brunch last weekend. Bottomless brunch although pricey it's was amazing, cocktails are lovely and so was the food. I think an hour isn't enough, having done quite a few 90 mins should be the minimum. The lady that served us made sure we always had a drink. The room was disappointing. We had room 1. The road noise is beyond belief and a loose drain outside making a noise every time a car passes over was awful. The bath doesn't keep the water in, it drains out of the plug hole as fast as you fill it! Also ruined by another guest shouting at 1am on her phone and slamming doors going room to room. People really are selfish in hotels! Great location. But won't return.
