Before we went I read reviews some of which had me wondering what id let myself in for The staff are great and the breakfast was nice, the location is perfect, the pub next door (owned by same people) is great but be warned some rooms are above it so an early night isnt an option without ear plugs as...

All of the previous reviews are true. we have come home today, a day early couldnt have stayed another night. How is it still open. We are not fussy travellers but we couldn`t put up with it another night.

Ok, I made a school boy error in not reading reviews, booked in haste, which was my mistake. So my 24Hr stay was my own fault, the room hadn't been vacuumed for a while (weeks), mould on the windows, bathroom had mould all over the place, the toilet flushed once then ran water for the night, breakfast was ok, no...

I just want to start this review by making it clear that I am not somebody who routinely moans about hotels etc - I definitely make the best of holidays and I certainly was not expecting 5* accommodation for £63 a night. I nearly cancelled my booking after reading some of the negative reviews on here, but unfortunately decided it...

Having read the reviews in advance I knew the White House Hotel was going to be bad. Fair play to the White House it was even worse. I could easily repeat all the previous reviews but will save my breath. However, particular highlights were.... no heating or hot water. Not great in the middle of February having done a day...

This hotel is a dirty hovel. The central heating doesn't work so you get a noisy fan heater in the room. The corridor to our room was cluttered with rubbish . The bathroom light constantly flickered when left on. The only bedside light we had didn't work . We had 2 televisions but no remote . The ear pounding disco...

This hotel looked fairly nice on the pics. We was supposed to stay 2 nights but my boyfriend double booked. Thankfully the lady managed to change it and only book us in for one night. Was meant to be £153 for 2 nights but then she told us it was £63 for one night which didn't add up. When we...

This place is hanging, got put in some room saying we had been updated only to find out it was a room joined on to the owners with a door going through, then all we heard was arguing coming from that room. My girlfriend was so scared we had to just leave and find somewhere else to stay. Thanks a...

First I would like to say I looked at all the reviews on here and thought it cannot be that bad!!! I really wanted to be proven wrong. The reality is that this Hotel need to be Modernised totally.

We were welcomed by an empty bar and restaurant - the lady was nice, but fumbled around for some time as couldn't find our room key. Once the key was found, we battled our way through a small room full of large bags (I struggled to fit my small case through the walkway) and a dirty staircase. The room was...
