“Good Base”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

Very welcoming owners, I was concerned that when I arrived that with the Bar downstairs it would have been noisy later on but I didn’t hear a thing. My room was bright, spacious and very clean, the Bathroom was neat and my bed was very comfortable.

I have only just arrived and have never written a review before, but felt compelled to as this place is great. I rang last minute and managed to get the last available room at an excellent rate. The guy is lovely and friendly, and the atmosphere is very welcoming, which is especially nice being a single female traveller. The room is spotless and spacious. I am looking forward to trying the pub grub!

The Restaurant that had been recommended to us told us they could not accommodate us (2) because of the International Football. However they did say there was another Hotel about 15 minutes walk from them - that was it. We found the Blue Keys Hotel after quite a walk. My husband is 80 years old and I am 76 years old. The Girl in the Bar was so friendly and helpful giving us a very nice table in a quiet part of the restaurant area. (football still in the area). We had a welcome drink and were offered a small but different menu. My husband was delighted with his Sea Bass whilst I enjoyed the Chicken. The Owner/Manager came to ask us how we liked the meal and as my husband has been a Chef they debated the matter somewhat. The Owner then told us he was renovating this rather old hotel and in a few months time it would be completely different. We wish him well, he deserves success. His staff was outstanding and the speed of the service was excellent. A good evening was achieved.

Room Tip: We did not stay at this hotel, but it will be on our list if ever we need a nice welcome, I am sure...

I stayed one night when in emotional difficulty. Landlady very kind. She carried my bag upstairs. I got a good discount as they had no single room but I had a family room. The room and bathroom were spotless and very comfortable. The service was excellent. I would heartily recommend it to any woman traveling alone.
