2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner, Traveled with pets
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Not recommended for dog owners. You are asked to pay extra to keep a dog (£15) whilst simultaneously being downgraded in room quality. The photos of the bedrooms are not an accurate representation of the rooms on offer. We were given a very old, smokey smelling and outdated room with a horribly old bathroom with grout falling out of the walls. To their credit they did agree the room was not up to scratch and refunded us so we could move to a nicer hotel down the road. Overall we certainly won’t be returning and would advise people to ask to see their room before paying (as I’m sure they do have nice rooms there... somewhere)
