“Worst b & b ever.”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Have stayed in many places, in many countries, and this has got to rate as one of the worst. Wouldn't call it a b & b as it does not come with breakfast !! The whole place is going to rack and ruin. The carpets are filthy, you have only a hand basin to wash in and the loo is out in the hall. The decor is shabby to say the least and everywhere seems to be pretty unclean. The owner seems to just be glad to take your money with no worries about whether or not his guests would like to return. I don't think any of them ever do !!! Steer well clear.

Reviewed 10 June 2013

I work away a lot and have stayed in lots of pubs, b&bs and guest houses but this place is by far the worst I have ever stayed in. the place had a horrible smell of cats, bedding was dirty, disgusting bathrooms & showers and I don't think ive ever been bitten so much in my sleep. I personally hope I never see the place again and would strongly recommend that nobody ever stays there

if i had photos then you would not have to take my word for it, my mother and i stayed 1 night here. to say the room was falling apart is an understatement with holes in the wall where you can see the outside to the light switch with bare wires. Not to mention the stained sheets and the bed bugs where i got bitten to death. Never again will I be staying here

Room Tip: don't even visit here
