“Dirty tired place not deserving the title 'Hotel'”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

Bar area OK - oldy worldy, a locals local feel. Seemed fine. The room was dirty with stained carpets, dust all over, stained headboards, worn through bed linen (clean though), lumpy old beds and a shower that changed from hot to ice when it felt like it. Electrics dodgy as some plugs only intermitently seemed to work and outside our room there was a plug with a loose cover. To cap it all the breakfast was traditional tastless greasy spoon.

the owner gave the air of not giving a stuff - could not possibly be blind to it, just did not care. Our previous 2 nights were in a place costing the same with wonderful staff, fantastic breakfast and very nice clean rooms !

For 80 quid I expected a lot better. Unfortunately there were no alternates that late.

I see a comment for a 'place to crash'... i would add.. only if you have to !

We spent £80 a night for this place, and while we didn't expect the most luxurious accommodations, what greeted us was shocking. A room with stained carpet, a bathroom with stained carpet as well (we couldn't believe our eyes), and a bath, with no shower. A couple bars of soap and no shampoo.
We complained to the owner that for £80 we expected at the very least a shower, let alone a small shampoo bottle. He told us that 'we told you it was ensuite'.......

The bar is pleasant, the locals (on the quiz night I was there) were friendly. Being a resident doesn't help when it comes to after-hours (and therefore legal) nightcaps.

The room was small, the bathroom also cramped (with nothing but a complimentary tiny bar of soap). There was a stain on the wall, and the sash window wouldn't stay open (the top half was painted shut).

It's OK as a place to crash, and the pub is fine for a drink, but you're not going to impress anyone if you take them there for the night
