“Disappointing Stay”
Reviewed 2 August 2011

Was a slightly disappointing stay. Our bathroom clearly hadn't been cleaned for a while as I found a mould covered soap label on the shower taps and hair around the sink. The room was tired and dated, beds were comfortable but the carpets a bit grubby. Tea bags etc are just left uncovered on the dressing table which isn't every hygienic. There was no hairdyer or full length mirror.

There is no breakfast provided and lunch is only served between 12pm - 2pm which is a shame as more flexible food times would have been appreciated as there are limited places to eat in Benson.

Cheap accommodation but for a reason, would ask if the rooms have been refurbished first before you book.
