It was clean and we were warm. Had 3 v good nights sleep. Staff helpful. Quirky characterful but in great need of refurb. Breakfast only plastic wrapped bun plus chocolate brioche, warm fruit yoghurt, soggy berries, cereal for £9.Breakfast area and terrace we're tired but easy to make it v attractive. Loveley and light. Terrace glass panels safe? Unsure. Not enough staff ie to provide bar cover. Many minor repairs needed. In room 6, the curtains partly held up with string. Bin never emptied. Outside looks recently painted but inside doesn't match up. Some loveley features eg stairway, ancient fireplace. Lounge comfortable but no one serving tea or drinks though we did get these on first night and were made very welcome. The pool area, seen from above looked OK but wouldn't be keen on being in there as it was on camera at reception. It also had weird looking rocks in at 1 end? We were family group of 7 and all had various concerns about rooms re showers and WiFi not working but we're all glad of the parking and closeness to town and loveley staff- your strong point

Old historic hotel...needs a bit of a refurb

Pros: History and the staff
Cons: In need of a refurb
Location: Right in the centre of town...super location
Pleasant and helpful staff. Nice full english breakfast. Historic old building. Good leisure facilities including pool which we did not use on this occasion. Just could do with a bit of an upgrade eg worn carpets, painting etc. Double bed a bit small for 2 people

Unfriendly not just dirty but absolutely filthy

Pros: Nothing!
Cons: The place should be closed down, it is beyond improvement.
I have never been to any hotel however modest that was as poorly maintained and run as this hotel. The place is filthy, filthy, filthy. Authoryties should close it down. It does not conform with any health and safety regulations, a proper nightmare in every respect!
