Negative Reviews


Dated hotel

Guests said that the hotel is a basic property of the Marston's Inn hotel chain, and is dated in many aspects. The decor of the hotel is not one of the best, and definitely can be upgraded to a brighter one. Many guests said that there were problems even in closing the windows of the rooms.


Requires cleaning

The rooms, bathrooms and overall property requires nice cleaning to be done. Some guests mentioned that the rooms were stinking, the net curtain and carpets had stains and the bathroom smelled of dampness.


Other snags

The beds were uncomfortable, very hard and kept moving away from the wall. Chairs in the pub too kept falling apart, the lighting in the hotel was very dim and the soap dispensers were empty in many rooms.
