4/10 Fair

Great location, however very noisy on the highway. Bedroom booked stated a queen bed and single - what we had was a double and a tiny child's bed. The shower had mold on the walls and the water sprayed out all over the floor. Over priced food in the restaurant that was not worth the price at all. Overall a disappointing and overpriced place to stay

A quick trip to Tamworth…
I left things behind and received a phone call the next day. Very helpful staff told me what to do to get the things returned. We had quite a basic room, but it had everything we needed. Comfortable bed and a sofa (probably a sofa-bed) to watch tv on.

A comfortable stay in a property close to town. Breakfast and service from staff was lovely however the room was in need of renovation (cracks in the walls, old carpets, old grout in bathroom etc.). Nonetheless, a very comfortable bed and the nice included breakfast made for an ideal overnight stop.
