A lukewarm welcome followed by a cold room with water coming in through the ceiling. Asking for another room seemed to be a major inconvenience. The other one was relatively clean but not nice. We'd booked for two nights but left after one. Fair enough that they might be in the middle of refurbishment but it doesn't excuse poor service,...

My partner and I have holiday breaks every 4 weeks and have stayed in a lot of hotels but this by far the worst overall. Even if you get a deal I would stay clear, do yourself a favour. Angela the owner was lovely on arrival and reminded me of 'Mrs Bouquet'. On arrival the foyer was dirty and smelt...

It is difficult to explain how bad this hotel is but the reviews here illustrate many of the problems. Walking into the reception area you feel like you are entering a private living room, there are numerous staff members (dress in dirty work cloths) lounging about and watching television, I have never felt so unwelcome in any guest house. The...

If you like dogs then you could like this place. They own the entrance hall which was the only public area open when we were there. They live on the sofas. The bedroom was very large as was the bathroom. However the heating was not on when we arrived and although it was turned on as we went into the...

Breakfast like a transport cafe. Very poor value for money. Great shame it could be a little...

STAY AWAY!!!! Booked in for a 2 night stay for our honeymoon. Shown our room,walked straight back out again! Disgusting! Looked liked a closed down hotel when we approached! Then when we tried to claim a refund through the company we booked through (ActivitySuperstore) they lied to them and said we had stayed and would not offer a refund.

Spent a week on holiday with my husband and dog and were delighted by the accommodation, staff and food. The hotel is not the ritz you get what you pay for, but the service from staff is exceptional nothing to much for any of them, this is a family run business and is clean and tidy with clean towels and...

Never felt so welcomed by hotel staff before. Nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is under refurbishment so don't come expecting a palace but if you want good homely food and amazing views get here and give it a try! The hotel is dog friendly so yes it will have dogs and sometimes they do come over for a...

On arrival the hotel looks fab the grounds are lovely and well kept. On entering the hotel, we were met by a pleasant lady who checked us in and showed us to the room. Throughout the hotel there were scented candles to hide the musty dog smell. Room 19 had a double bed and two singles and was big and...
