  • Great staff but building very tired and desperately in need of some investment. Come in…

    Sadly rundown

    The hotel seemed to be desperately short staffed and the restaurant was closed though bar food was available. Our room was clean with a comfortable bed and crisp white linen but the whole place was very tired looking. Our room was on third floor with no lift. Breakfast was ok but the staff seemed to be more sleepy than the customers! It would be a good idea to tell the young staff that talking to customers in the same tone as you talk to your friends is not a good idea. Service was slow and various items were missing off the cooked breakfast without explanation until a comment was made. The hotel was attractive and in a good location so it was disappointing that it was lacking in upkeep.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Worst hotel ever

    Awful hotel. Booked 4 rooms for two nights whilst attending a family wedding. Plaster falling off walls, curtains falling apart, one room had a bug trap behind the bed 😬 Bath tub stained, water was hot then cold no midheat. Windows wouldn't close properly. Probability the worst hotel i have ever stayed at. It is a lovely building just needs a complete refit.

    Good and friendly service but a little noisy

    Showing signs of age but nothing can be done about that. Excellent service but a little trouble, at first, logging on to wi-fi. Unfortunately wedding reception on at same time as stay (a Friday evening)

    Nice hotel

    My daughter and I stayed a couple of nights and we had a lovely time. An old but comfortable hotel. Our room was a lovely size, comfy bed and huge bathroom. Food was nice and a reasonable price too. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    Stay at the Travelodge

    Hotel looks very nice from the outside but that's where it ends. Built in 1892 and hasn't seen a paint brush since

    Wouldn’t stay again

    Place needs some TLC. Bathroom had tiles from the 60s lots of cracks, bath panel was hanging off hole in the tap. Bed was comfy. Breakfast was a waste of time, no white bread (they had none!!) then had to wait half an hour for it to arrive.

    SPACIOUS AND WELL EQUIPPED ROOM. GREAT CHECK IN.

    Check in was great and very speedy and efficient and all the staff were friendly. The room was lovely and spacious and well equipped. Bathrooms are a little tired but spacious also. Did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the food etc. Overall a good stay and will be staying again.

    Stuck in the past

    There is no lift in the hotel, stairs a nightmare for Arthritic knees. Bathroom floor was dirty in the corners, door lock broken, grab rail above bath missing. Carpet in the room filthy with ominous looking stains. No hair drier. Dirty marks on the walls, large cracks in the walls. Chef has no idea how to make an Omelette, I received an egg Pizza with burnt crispy edges and greasy melted cheese on the top.
