I have never stayed in such a freezing cold hotel. Every room was icy. We had to ask for an additional radiator in the bedroom, since the tiny one in there was totally ineffective.The hot tap in the bathroom did not even work and the shower was cold in the morning. One small towel was provided for the double room.... More

Stayed at the Croft for one night and that was enough. The bathroom was freezing as the radiator had been turned off. The room was in an annex with no emergency lighting and no lighting outside, complete darkness. The bathroom and toilet were not clean, the strip light in bathroom had loads of bugs in it. We had to have... More

This was the worst 20 minutes in a hotel room. From the toilet handle being a bolt of some fashion. The hair in the bed.... Rude staff who refused to give money back and the damp and scum around the room. Would rather sleep on a park bench

Hard one as I do not do bad reviews unless very very bad. Reviews here say some bad things but I found it cleaner than many pricier chains. A little worn in places and although the towels were clean I would buy new ones. The restaurant was empty but we had a fantastic meal and I will probably use this... More

Quaint hotel - no idea how many rooms - ours was on the front near a busy road but still slept really well. Rooms clean and tidy although maybe a little dated for some - I believe that this is reflected in the price. From what I can gather this hotel has new owners (Tony) and if it was him... More
