When we arrived our room was not ready, although we were early so we went out for a drink a came back. We were given a different room to what we booked, but it was explained to us that for a family it was probably the better room, so we just accepted without checking out the other room first. The...

Hotel Review The White House If you need disabled access and facilities forget this hotel. It's a danger if you use a wheelchair. Disabled access and facilities are none existent. The disabled bedroom has no handrails in the shower. There is no shower seat in the shower as advised and I was given a garden sun lounger to use. The...

It's no pleasure writing this - however there are myriad reasons for avoiding this hotel. The place looks generally run down and could do with a lick of paint. Basics were missing from the room (almost empty bath and shower gel, no bulbs in the bedside lamps, no remote for the TV). There was a fire alarm on our second...

We stayed here for two nights, wish we had read the reviews first! We arrived at the Hotel and our first impressions about the place was it could have done with a lick of paint, that was before we saw the room! The owner was very polite, sat on a sofa with his leg in plaster and an overflowing ashtray,...

My husband had booked this trip as a surprise for my birthday. At first glance when we arrived I thought it looked less than average, not something my husband would normally like to book. It certainly didn't look like the pictures on their website. The manager at reception gave us the keys to our room in the out building which...

Not welcoming at all, no reception area just the owner sat on the couch with paperwork & utter mess... first impression was "where on earth have i booked" felt so disgusted... Onto the bedroom, up a flight of stairs (dirty carpet)...

I had originally booked this hotel via Booking.com and when I booked the room it had deleted my request for a family room so therefore I needed to change my booking. I immediately rang the hotel and explained my dilemma. The man who answered said it wouldn't be a problem and I can have a triple room - which was...

On Wednesday 6th August 2015 we decided to take a short break with our dog, boy was it difficult to find somewhere that would accommodate us.
