We collected our key from a very helpful lady in the bar next door, who took the time to answer any questions we had. The room was basic, but very clean. Breakfast next morning was very good, with lovely tasty bacon, not dry and overcooked as it can so often be. The b and b is less than a 15...

I had booked four nights here but left after the second because I couldn't sleep in the noisy freezing cold room,. the shower only half worked, the water was lukewarm and the owner was rude to me when I dared to complain. At 2am on the second night a drunk and noisy couple tried to get in to my room...

Found this one online and booked via their own web page for a triple toom including breakfast for one night for £55. I then checked trip adviser and saw some mixed reviews but felt it could afford to be only OK for that sort of money. Well, it's far more than only OK. Yes you do need to go to...

We had planned the trip a while and were happy to get an affordable room. But when we finally arrived, tired and only looking forward to a nice room with a comfortable bed they told us first that the reservation didn't arrive to change it then to a young colleague messed up. We had paid partly upfront wanted that money...

Spent one night at this place and can highly recommend it. Like all accommodation, it is important to research the surrounding area. There is a pub next door, so yes, you should expect some noise but that certainly didn't bother me. On arrival we were greeted warmly by very friendly and helpful staff. The room was a good size for...

It is late at night when writing this review and I'm unable to sleep because of the noise from a neighbouring bar. The room is very small, the bathroom is adequate, very small television on wall. There is a strange smell, probably because the inn is very old. On a positive the staff are friendly and there is good wifi...
