I visited with my partner last year purely for the pub downstairs and not the hotel; though we did use the hotel toilets which was as dirty as other reviewers have mentioned. The lady running the bar was friendly, but not overly so, and didn't seem prepared for customers at all when we arrived. The lunch menu was fairly bland,...

Charged online when I made the booking and then again when I got there. I was promised that I was not charged the first time. This was not true. Ive not been able to speak to anyone that can help and I've been pushed around to, whom I assume is a fictitious person, as they are never there - and...

This was once a charming place, that I recommended - and I have seen its development over the last 30 years. It saddens me to say that it has reached the end of the road. The room was probably the dirtiest I have ever slept in. Someone had been smoking in it for some time and the landlady just said...

I booked one of my work colleagues into this hotel and was informed it was the worst place he had ever stayed. The room smelt of toilet waste and the bathroom was disgusting. I would avoid this hotel. Having not been to this area before I did try and research this on trip advisor and some reviews had been more...

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Unclean, cold shower, broken bed. The bar only had one beer on tap and they didn't even have a bottle of still water. This place should be closed down. Stay here and expect to get bitten at night. I DID.

Had an hour to kill whilst waiting for my wife so fancied a pint and a quick bite to eat. Only really wanted a sandwich. Walking into the bar was like like stepping back in time into an episode of 'Minder'. Dirty carpets, everything was brown and I could swear the whole place had that 70's tv haze to it....

How this hotel passed hygiene and fire checks god knows. I don't like posting bad reviews but I feel that others have to be warned about this public house / hotel. The bar room is thick with dust and the carpets are dirty. When looking for the toilet I walked past the open kitchen door. I was shocked by the...

Having stayed in this hotel, I can say that this hotel it self is crying out for a makeover. I'm sure enough beers sell in the bar to buy new bed linen and replace the ghastly interiors. Nice approachable staff, but times have changed, and we are in a society that expects more bang for their buck

My god. When i think of English cuisine and service in the 1980s this place comes to the forefront. Basil Fawlty would laugh even at the crappy old interior, smelly carpets, hobo locals sleeping at the bar and damp old toilets that reminded me of scenes from the movie 'The Shining'. Luckily we didn't stay here, but as I had...
