if you ever want to stay at an 'ole country pub' with a cheery landlord then this is definately NOT the place to be. Surly staff, pounding housemusic making it impossible to have a conversation is exactly what you get. Ok you think if its full to the rafters of joyful revellers, but alas when there are 6 people in the place staring woefully into their beer then the mark has been well and truly missed. on top of a that to be charged nearly £2 for a cup of tea with breakfast, bearing in mind that we had paid for bed and breakfast is absolutely beyond me. Terrible terrible place which i shall never grace again unless by some misfortune st peters gates arent open to me and i'm cast into hell for eternity.. in which case this would fit the bill nicely

Room Tip: rooms clean and basic. shower didnt work and no attempt to repair or reolve

Lovely building in a very pleasant area. Rooms basic but clean. Staff unhelpful bordering on downright rude - you know who you are! The rooms are not tidied during your stay and tea and coffee not replenished (the milk and cream on the tea tray was sour). In fact after taking the money for the room I think they would prefer not to have to see or speak to guests again. Be aware that if they do you the 'favour' of cooking a breakfast then they charge separately for tea and coffe at £1.50 and £1.75 per cup but do not tell you until you are paying.

I would most definitely not stay here again There are far more hospitable places to stay in this area. The nearby Travelodge it superior to this place.

Room Tip: The front rooms are on a very busy main road. Unless you are a heavy sleeper you will get no sleep a...

Room nice and value for money so no complaints on that score. Staff friendly. However it was a Saturday night and music from DJ downstairs so noisy could hardly hear the TV. Went on til midnight - then right outside my window DJ parked his van and more noise loading up his equipment for about half hour. Banging and slamming of doors and chat downstairs for a good hour and half afterwards - presume staff clearing up but they should respect people trying to sleep upstairs. Also on very busy road so lots of traffic noise. Made cup of tea in morning and milk was off.
