Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 April 2006

I booked this hotel on a Thursday afternoon due to arrive Sunday and was quoted £68. I would be booked into a en-suite on night and a shared bathroom the next. The prices on their website quote £34 a night for single en-suite and £39 for a double ensuite if occupied singularly.

As I requested a single only based on the fact my sponsoring agency want you to book the cheapest rooms prices I was expecting to pay £68 in total maximum.

However on arrival I was switched into a double ensuite and charged £39 a night each. I didnt realise this till the receptionist (which I never knew was supposed to be the manageress or a stand-in for a manager or the manageress as she always spoke of someone called Diane she had to ask but was never there-at least I never saw this other person).

I asked if it was possible to switch me back to the single ensuite at £34 explaining the position but it was waylaid untill the day after by which time I abandoned trying to switch rooms and thought what the hell-stay in that room-admittedly it was a pleasant room-and the facilities a kettle tea/coffee etc was in plenty,a very nicely maintained bathroom.

The only begrudgement is I feel aggrieved that they charge double occupancy rates when they run out of single ensuites.If they can't supply the rooms its a bit off to charge more based on only whats available.

The front of the hotel is very pleasant and tidy and room for about 6 cars to park-if you dare risk the potential damage as there appears to be next door a hostel or B&B taking in only homeless teenagers and further up the road the same. These usually are about hidden in the hedges or swinging off gateposts of adjoining properties.

breakfasts are pleasant enough anyway.

the rear of the property backs onto anb unkempt garden and what i can only describe as lots of falling off guttering and holes in the building near the loft/fascias that are filled with copious amounts of that bright orange aerosol foam filling stuff to keep the pidgeons out.prepare for a dawn chorus of coo-ing and the screeching of passing freight trains atabout 5.30 am in the back area.

All in all ok for a few nights stayover.

pleasant enough 8 out of 10.
