Good Points: Err - i'll have to think long and hard to see if there were any - oh yes, the window opened to let the smell out! Bad Points: The Bedroom smelt of uncleanliness, overuse and age, all furniture and equipment should have been thrown out years ago. The bed lined was worn where others had slept - yuk! And, when I grudgingly tried to sleep, I became very itchy!!!! The shared toilet doors were painted chipboard. There was a running tap in the toilets which could not be turned off, I could hear it all night. The dining room doubled as the bar where I ate off worn formica tables, the ceiling had been repaired and was not painted over dark green like the rest. I arrived late and wished I had slept in my car. The breakfast looked o.k. but I was violently ill 20 mins after I left the hotel. General review: When I booked this hotel, I had tried for several hours to find a hotel with vacancy's around the area which was under Â£75 a night. I was only going to be there for 5 hrs in total as I would arrive late from France and have to be on the road early. I know the area and the Golf Club as was. I was concerned with the low price but the photographs looked good and I could not get anything else locally. I think this hotel should not be on offer by any company with any respect for their customers - it borders on a doss house in bad repair and will never stay here again and recommend no one else does untill the owners renovate it or class it as it is "A Doss House"

Good Points: Friendliness of staff. Comfortable warm rooms. Bad Points: Fixings & decor poorly done - bodge jobs, no professionalism seeminly involved. Cold breakfast room, works in progress. Poor standard of furniture. Very poor (even primitive) bathroom.
