I booked last month, as you can imagine it was freezing, but the place has no heaters. Only hot water bottles. No tv in the rooms, no wi-fi. Bt Andy is friendly and helpful. But he can only do so much with such limited resources.

Old man needs someone to help but rooms are neat. Decorating could do with a little revamp.
