Fast forward 30 odd years & the place is a dump. Where to start…..so on a freezing day in Feb, we arrive to find the room has no heating. All the control buttons have been pulled off the heater & only cold air blasts out. As the room is cold enough we give up. Reception bring a cranky electric heater...

It's a bit of a shame about this place, coz it's a typical "pub" atmosphere, nice and cosy and even though the rooms are basic, they are comfortable. Though if you are looking for a good night's sleep, you're not going to get it. There is a nightclub down the road and the music goes on until about 2/3am........so you...

A good place to go for a drink and a chat with the great bar staff. But unfortunately they really let themselves down with the hotel rooms the last time my clients stayed there. I've had people stay there before and although you know it's not going to be the ritz, it was acceptable and the atmosphere and people in...

You get what you pay for, badly needs decorating, smells of pub, alcohol, and a damp smell....beds need new mattresses, carpets and seriously updating. Friendly staff Music goes on till early hours on weekend, something to bear in mind, if you want an early night, book somewhere else. This is avert basic hotel, suits people that are maybe just visiting...

Room was clean but had a strong smell of smoke, Staff were very friendly and accommodating . No breakfast and only had a coffee machine on the landing, which was the noisiest I've ever heard. It just happened to be Tredfest when we were there which was the only good thing about the place.

Booked for the week - only stayed one night!!! but only stayed because I couldn't find anywhere else at late notice!!! It stinks of damp and mold and paint peeling off the walls. Door locks barely work and the doors aren't exactly secure. Curtains aren't blackout curtains so woke up at 4.30am as the room was in full daylight!! With...

The only good thing was that the bed linen was clean. No windows only skylight, which you could not open. The rooms smelt musty. Black mold in the bathroom around the bath, glass shelf above the sink hanging off. Mirror in the bedroom was broken. Could not get out quick enough and would not stay again.
