“The word "Hotel" should not be linked with this poor B&B establishment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2009

No guest parking avaiable. Owner advised us to park down the street in front of an empty property ( not his). The street signs clearly stated clamping in operation. Ensuite consisted of a shower and toilet in a cupboard with a very noisy maserator fitted that meant that, when you flush, the whole house could hear I am sure. The room smelled unpleasent and the bedding was stained. The large windows looked out to the next house on the ally but had no nets or frosting so the thick heavy curtains had to be drawn and light put on even on such a sunny day. The sink was over the oposite side of the room to the ensuite and was poorly constucted and not clean. The room had no towels.We left after finding alternative accomodation. The owner promised a refund to my card minus the 1st nights fee but this has not happened!! The owner did not seem to give a hoot why we were not happy but as he kept our money any way I dont suppose he cared.

Ummm, how to put this 'hotel'...
I think my expectations may have been a little high for the money I paid. It was a standard B&B, with ok service. The rooms were the reason we only managed to stay for 5 minutes!! I booked an double ensuite room, to be greated with a room with a double bed and two single beds crammed into it. There was an 'ensuite' bathroom as such, which was a toilet and a shower in a cupboard. When I say cupboard, I mean a cupboard, the doors were wardrobe doors from B&Q!! The sink was in the middle of the vanity unit in front of the bed. I didn't stay long enough to sample the breakfast.
Overall, well, it's a place to crash and not much more.
