breakfast waiter miserable old tired and dirty 10 minute wait for receptionist at 5pm priority given to pub
Excellent location, good atmosphere, good selection of real ales and very handy for transport links. Friendly staff and a good breakfast.
Paying For expensive parking. The hotel is in need of a reprint but is still clean and has great atmosphere.
the door had been punched obviously there was multiple holes in the door, the flooring in the bathroom was tacky and not laid properly especially the carpet out of the door. the radiator never turned off.. in future id probably pay maybe 35 at most for the room 62 is quite outrageous for what was presented when i stayed there.
Very noisy, room hot and stuffy, bed uncomfortable, decor and furniture very shabby. Not good value for money.
Railway theme, convenient location
Expensive car parking, room a bit cold, decor tired but good value for money overall
Closeness to town centre
Paying for parking
I stayed one night to break the train journey from Southampton to Penzance. Room Was basic but had everything I needed. Good value, decent breakfast, one minute from station. I would stay again.
This shambles of an excuse for a hotel has to be high on any list of the world’s worst hotels, but in reality to give it the credence of the name ‘hotel’ is a misnomer. The internal appalling state of repair of The Great Western the gives the impression of a now closed and derelict homeless hostel, with its peeling, flaking paintwork falling from the celling onto the bed, a bathroom door with holes punched in it, the torn bathroom floor covering waiting to trip you up, the creaking floor boards that respond loudly to the gentlest of tip toes, a bed so uncomfortable that sleep was impossible and a room with the sound proofing qualities of a sheet of paper ensures you get to know your neighbours intimately. We live in Devon, but needed to catch an early morning train and with the civilised nearby Ramada Hotel fully booked we chose for convenience this so called hotel. It’s truly abysmal. I have never in my life been caused to write such a negative comment about anywhere in the world I have stayed and given that I am around 65 years of age and travelled for 40 years on business extensively through not only the UK but Europe and the rest of the world, staying in probably 5000+ hotels, it should give some feel for how appalling this building is.
Ideal place to relax and use as a base as it is close to transport and night entertainment
Location close to station yet relatively quiet
Ceiling leaked on to bed meaning I had to change rooms. Nobody at reception either for the above problem to be sorted or at check in and had to wait for bar staff to finish serving at a busy time before I was seen.
I booked with Booking.com. Full English breakfast supposed to be included. I was told the chef was on leave. No Breakfast. No Discount. Very disappointing. Even showed receipt. This was not accepted either because I had budget room.
Due to the time I arrived (10.30pm) and the time I left (7am) I wasn't able to get a receipt
Staff, comfort, Breakfast.
We stay at this hotel about 4 or 5 weekends a year.It has a bit of character also we noticed a marked improvement in the staff and the quality of the food in the last 6 months(their food specials are great value)The rooms are clean and comfortable and with a free breakfast and free WIFI thrown in it is very good value.Such a shame about the windows(see negative comments)
The windows in our room looked as if they had not seen a sponge nor water in years,literally could hardly see out of them.The rest of the room is clean and tidy why spoil it with filthy windows.On minor points waste bin was so miniscule a handful of tissues fills it up and also there is a shortage of plug sockets.
Proximity to St. David's Veterinary Hospital.
Despite stating Pet Friendly on web-site, they do not permit dogs in their rooms. Pet Friendly refers only to the Bar area.
Everything that one would expect for a short stay was provided. As already stated, the price was very competitive.
The bar would get crowded and noisy from early evening. Presumably the majority of these people were not staying at the hotel. This put me off using the bar and having an evening meal there.
It's quite well located. Very close to the train station and not far from the high street. Simple but have everything you need.
Not well isolated from the outside. Traffic noise was disturbing all the night. Bathroom needs a work hand and better cleaning.
Just accross the train station quiet though! Pub downstairs good, and taxi rank only 2 mins ago
kinda old building but inside it is reasonably ok!
Comfy bed Location Some nice beers on tap Allowed me to leave my luggage before I left Nice reception/bar staff
Room looked a bit tired and there was hair on the floor of the bathroom Lighting was dim The young guy taking breakfast orders was a bit glum and looked as if he didn't want to be there
next to the train station but very quiet, I ve always had a good sleep Nice breakfast
nothing in particular ...all was ok!
First thing I like very much is the hotel is very near to St Davids Station, easy access to bus, decent breakfast, rooms are big enough with coffee/tea maker, good wifi.
No lift. I had to climb with 2 heavy luggages for 2 floors. Other than this, there seems to be no issue.
The room was clean, tidy naot as rundown as the main parts of the building
The hotel/pub is old and not in good repair. It is situated near the station with expensive parking fees. The breakfast was average
Food in pub was good quality.
Room very tired looking. Holes in carpet and paint flaking off walls. Breakfast staff looked miserable and restaurant again looking tired.
The range of real ales, closeness to the centre/St Davids train station. Good food/breakfast and value for money for what we required from the hotel.
Whist the room was comfortable there were Health and Safety issues ie rotten step to ensuite with bare timber and splinters, loose/hanging electrical sockets and defunct light bulb. Restaurant could do with a makeover.
