“Disappointing”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

Hotel looked pleasant enough but car park had an open skip and there were broken bottles lying around. We were given the key to our room only to find that it was already occupied. Another room was found for us - the bed was made but the room itself didn't appear to have been cleaned. The carpet needed hoovering. The mirrors were dirty especially the bathroom mirror which was filthy. The 'flush' button on the toilet was broken. The toilet roll holder was broken. The toilet seat was broken. On the positive side the cooked breakfast was good, the waitress was very pleasant. A shame that tea wasn't available. Would we return- no!

Reviewed 18 April 2012

Hotel seems like it has not been finished yet - the property is in a large courtyard with machinery in the yard so it looks rather unfinished. Entering the hotel you ring the bell for attention and while waiting you have time to enjoy the rather dubious smell that hangs around the hallway.

As for the rooms itself, the bed is comfy but I had to sweep away the large cobwebs that were hanging above the bed before I felt able to sleep. There was tea and coffee making facilities and a TV but the it was only tuned to ITV1 and the remote did not work.

The shower was average to say the least however things took a turn for the worst when I tried to change flow of water and the shower only sent out cold water, one way to wake up of a morning!

We were booked in on a B&B basis but decided to miss the option of a cooked breakfast. As it was, the toast arrived cold and slightly burnt and the coffee was totally disgusting.

Room Tip: Attic rooms are the worst.
