“Dont bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2010

We checked out of this hotel and got a refund. The room was lovely and clean, but the food included in our deal was miles away at a sister hotel (only told at check in) plus the location of the hotel is in a down trodden pub full of drunk rowdy locals (At 4pm!) and we didnt feel the car would be safe parked outside. Must say though, the manager was brilliant when we asked for a refund, no qualms, but that makes me think that this wasnt the first time someone has refused to stay...

...... my refugee budget was running out, I was tired, hungry and thirsty. The Traveldoge was almost empty but although boasting 19 gbp rooms, the receptionist would not budge from 42 pounds for the night so I had to move on.

The pub is in a very unsalubrious area and the pub clientele would be more used to contractors than any other type of guests but it was OK for one night. They stored my bike inside and that always gets a bonus BUT the area and the fact that this is really a working pub with rooms lets it down.

Breakfast was Youth Hostel style and standard but OK for the price.

OK for contractors but I would not recommend for a family stay. Friendly staff ...as good as they get!

On arrival my first impression was 'oh my god what have I done'.But I didn't have much choice.through booking at short notice.
The hotel was really just rooms above a pub.The condition inside was quite poor as it was in need of much redecoration and bore little resemblance to photo's on their website.The room was very basic and in my opinion, not worth the 2 stars the hotel had given themselves.The only redeeming feature was an OK breakfast.
I also made the mistake of booking over the phone, and it wasn't until getting home that I discovered that £29.50 too much had been taken from my account.
I am now in dispute with the 'hotel' over this money.
