Friendly staff but still a crappy hotel
Posted Dec 22, 2016
Staff were friendly enough, though had to walk through a packed bar full of tough locals to check in. I am 6ft 1 and very well built; I felt mildly threatened by the clientele in the this ex mining town that is MILES from Bath who instantly started on me as soon as I came in. There should be a separate checkin area for hotel guests. Room was dreadful, creaky floorboards, dated hallways, breezy room, right near the road. Very old property; could be quite charming if it was done up properly; in its current state really rather creepy, actually; would make an excellent filming location for a horror/ghost movie. I didn't believe in the paranormal before I stayed here at all (I am a scientist) but I could swear under oath that I woke up in cold sweats a number of times to what I could have sworn was the sound of children laughing at 3am and saw ghostly child sized images in the corner of my eyes... Pay the extra and stay in Bath; Radstock is so far out of Bath that its just not worth it.
