I tried previous day to cancel but could not get hold of them. They charged full amount to our credit card. Not happy with their customer service or...

We have stayed in number of hotels in Bowness over the years and we first stayed in the White House about 10 years ago, and then a couple of times when it had been refurbished around 3 to 4 years ago, and it was brilliant, hence the reason we didn’t check it on TripAdvisor before we went this weekend, (what...

This hotel is on the brink of failing. It is dirty and it is uncomfortable. It is advertised on Booking.com. They have obviously not checked it out. If they have they should be ashamed. We booked at short notice, even though the reviews weren't good. We should have listened. I could go on for a long time but will stop...

So, I'm gonna do my best here to give a positive review. I booked to stay at this hotel for 2 nights for a special occasion, I had emailed ahead a few days before to see if there was any special extras and had no reply. Before I had even arrived at the hotel on the day of my visit,...

Extremely misleading, is nothing like the actual website. You are greeted by the owner who is as filthy as his hotel, dirty, smelly and food all over the floor, also a mass of cigarettes nubs in the ashtray next to him. The room is not set out well as you cannot walk around the bed, although sheets and towels were...

This place is well and truly described by many of the recent visitors. We booked two rooms at the last minute because it looked okay on the website. We arrived at 5pm and given the keys. We found the rooms were "made up" but under the covers were many unwelcome remnants from previous visitors. Both were pretty filthy and bathroom...

I booked this hotel for my wife's birthday and when we arrived at the hotel we were horrified at what we had walked into. The hotel was disgusting the man who gave us the key to the cell appeared to be drunk. The room was small and in need of a good clean the carpet was stained and had not...

Stayed here for 2 midweek nights with my lady. I booked a superior double room which was not cheap! Our room was a complete let down - the shower/wet room was dirty and was full of disgusting black mould. On our second day, and on returning from a long day walking, there was no hot water whatsoever so we had...
