2/10 Poor

We were told our booking was not valid as hotel was taken over 2 weeks ago. Charged us £10 more than agreed (£80). Asked us when we wanted breakfast in the morn. When we appeared there was a pack of Special K and some muesli on the bar counter. A tea and coffee was provided but nothing else. We asked when cooked breakfast would be served only to be told that kitchen was out of service. Bar was closed very early on Saturday evening. Unable to contact anyone. It was a run down scruffy shambles. People should be warned.

6/10 Good

Cheap and in the centre of Royston. Bed comfortable and warm room. Fine to crash for a night. Receptionist efficient and pleasant enough. But with no common parts to speak of - no bar, restaurant or even lobby area to hang out in - there’s very little to recommend about this rather unloved and down at heel place. Odd the owners don’t just sell it to someone who cares...

2/10 Poor

Worst stay I’ve had in a hotel, on arrival at the “pub” my grandad asked for a coke from the bar to drink, offered only one type of beer or orange juice. Appalling service, when advertised as pub, dinner, breakfast etc. Considered other accommodation even if it was non refundable! Ridiculously overpriced for a pathetic box room, which the male housekeeper allowed himself into both mornings at 8.20am with his keys! Even when we made ourselves clear that we were in the room, he continued to open the door. Disgraceful and felt wholly unsafe.
