Dirty, disorganised and unprofessional. Do not be deceived by the look of the place outside. Better spend more and get a room elsewhere.

Booked in advance and stayed for two nights. Rooms are dated they could do with plenty of TLC. In our room light fitting was hanging limply from ceiling, cobwebs in every corner and the cistern lid on toilet was cracked, with the blind in bathroom...More

Booked a 2 night stay with my wife for our wedding anniversary. Four poster room. Probably the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. Dined in the restaurant due to limited options in town. Staff untrained, this became more obvious as the night progressed....More

We sat in the courtyard and had lunch al fresco. The chicken caesar salad was a generous portion and perhaps could have done with less of the dressing. Friends had the Ploughmans and a Seniors' roast dinner of the day which were also tasty and...More
