Reality doesn’t match booking
The photos on the listings do not match the reality of this place. We were there less than ten minutes as couldn’t stay there.The room looked very run down, smelt and had damp up the walls and ceilings. Not wallpaper and furniture looked tired. All of the windows and even fire doors were open to air the damp musty smell and we were then shown what they considered to be a superior room when they lied and said they were sold out, they were not sold out and it was not a better room. The accommodation block is away from the main pub and basically looks run down and needs a full refurbishment. Please do not book this place as it doesn’t match what you see on the website and they do not give refunds and the front desk person ignored our concerns. Absolute disgrace.
