Excellent dog friendly accommodation
Excellent dog friendly accommodation. Suited our needs. Clean and comfortable. Could do with a new stair carpet but I think the owners are in the process of upgrading. Would highly recommend

Town Centre Accommodation
No-One to check you in! Text number on door, no reply! Super Cental Location. Room is basic and comfortable, much smalker than pictures. Could do with a deep clean in bathroom! Not suitable for anyone elderly, disabled etc as lengthy spiral staircase with too many stairs. No Lift! Was not made aware of this!

4/10 Fair

Money for nothing
Nice little village. Hotel very central to most amenities. Problem was the suite we were in. Looked like it was a botch job until they get round to refurbishment Bedroom clean and comfortable. Wouldn't want to use bath or shower as black mould marks on plaster tape around bath and shower curtain not up to scratching. Complained to whoever l spoke to person listed on paperwork. He was Very rude. Told me if l didn't like the room, to leave keys on table and go stay somewhere else. Taking into account this was 9pm on August Bank Holiday, we had been driving for 6 hours and l am disabled. He couldn't care less if he tried. 5 minutes later the owner came to see us. He said he understood our situation that the oven was a 'metal grease hole'. The kitchen worktops were sticky and unhygienic and the place did not live up to its rating. Owner agreed with what we stated and apologised. That however still left us paying good money for inferior accommodation.
