TV in room missing for 2 weeks per previous review, staff claimed to know nothing about it. Lock to door didn't work. Room smelled & was dirty. Slept in a cupboard in the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. Didn't bother with breakfast after reading previous reviews. No wonder you pay up front in this hotel, stay away!!

We had breakfast with a friend who was staying and it came up short. It had been booked for ages so was no surprise to the staff so should have been brilliant. Instead we had cold beans which were sent back and returned later still cold. Most of us had finished by the time the beans came back. Toast was...

This is a pub right in the middle of town with a number of rooms (12?) above the bar. Stayed here mid week. It's a nice pub in itself with decent beers on. It's a very friendly pub - the staff are only too pleased to help. Rooms are perhaps a little tired, but it's offset by the fact that...

Stay at Crosskeys on 11th/12th June 2016. Very welcoming, staff very friendly . Very comfortable rooms and an excellent breakfast with a good choice of what to eat. Would recommend. Bathroom could do with a bit of updating but rooms were certainly clean enough.

Really nice rooms, great pub with lively atmosphere it is a pity they ask seated customers to move in mid afternoon so they can set up the evening disco.On a brighter note, the breakfast was first class.

Visited with my friend, was greeted by the friendly bar staff Kara and Laurence. They provide a range of cocktails on their new cocktail menu and great customer service with a very friendly and homely atmosphere - I would recommend the Passion Fruit Martini! 👌🏽

After a bit of a trek through the town, came across this place. Staff were friendly as soon as we walked through the door. Not overly busy for a Friday night and a good selection for veggies and meaties alike. Food came quickly and was delicious on all counts. An imaginative selection and well cooked, tasty and filling. Good Beer...
