Negative Reviews

Rooms perhaps needs updating

In order to improve the standard of accommodation, guests would like to see the rooms updated and refreshed a little. The beds would particularly benefit from replacement in order to provide a better night’s sleep.

Noisy at times

It is worth bearing in mind that the rooms in this B&B are located above the pub and this inevitably leads to a degree of noise disturbance. On some nights, mainly when live music is being played, guests report that things can get quite loud, making it a challenge to get to sleep.

Rooms a bit small

Guests mention that they found the rooms too small for their liking. The bathrooms are also quite cramped which makes it difficult using the facilities.
