Welcoming hotel,great for travelling with dogs

Posted Apr 8, 2017
Pros: We felt very welcomed with 3 dogs. The free breakfast was a bonus - simple but satisfying and well executed.
Cons: Bit of a spruce up
Location: good central location for visiting the area
We normally stay at hotels in Brighton when visiting the area with our dogs, which are good but costs add up when you pay a nightly fee for dogs and at least £15 per night parking. We weren't sure about staying in a pub in case it was noisy, but it was absolutely fine. The hosts are very welcoming, and the accommodation is fine. The room and en suite were quite small and the ensuite could do with a refurb, but both were perfectly functional for a couple of nights. The hotel side could generally do with a spruce up but overall it's good value for money.

Rooms let it down

Posted Oct 31, 2016
Pros: The breakfast was lovely
Cons: Unfortunately, almost everything
We've stayed here a few times before, but it is now in desperate need of updating. Arrived at 3.30pm and were shown to our room, which wasn't anywhere near ready. Check in was supposed to be from 2.00pm. Left our bags in the room and went out for the day. When we returned late that night, our room had been left unlocked. Not a great start! We stayed in room 1, which was small but had everything you'd need for a short stay. The bed was comfortable, unfortunately that's all that was good about the room. The bathroom door and wardrobe doors were noisy enough to wake the dead. The floor and bed creaked too. The main issue was the bathroom. The door had a hole in it, the shelf was falling off and the toilet seat wasn't attached properly. Extreme caution was needed with the hot water tap, it was scalding. As for the shower, forget it! Boiling, freezing, boiling, freezing....you get the picture.

Really good affordable stay, good bar food and breakfast. Outside my room was a fairly noisy engine-air-ventilation machine, but about from that, I would revisit
