Myself, my husband and kids stayed here for a long weekend, it looked pleasant on the website and when we got there and checked in we just looked at each other and went oh dear...!!! it is basically a pub for locals, the hallway to the toilets stunk of urine and i wouldnt let my kids use the pub toilets. The bedroom was extremely basic, the bedside lockers and furniture drawers fell apart when were opend, the window wouldnt close tight, i had to hold my hand over holes in the shower hose to wash myself!!
We were left fresh towels and the room was serviced daily. The breakfast was cooked made to order, which was fine. We didnt feel like having our dinner in the evenings there as the locals sort of took over, the music pounded until late and with young kids was not appropriate, we were right above the pub and im not joking the floor was literally vibrating with the loud music.
The punchbowl is a pub with rooms, it isnt for couples of families!! wont be returning ever again.
