Positive Reviews

Good Cooked Breakfast

The free breakfast included is well cooked and delicious and is good value for money A good selection of beers and ales are also provided in the bar.

Welcoming and Friendly Staff

The staff are very friendly and welcoming and attend to the needs of guests and are also available to handle complaints and queries related to the rooms.

Good Central Location

The central location of the Bacon Arms is certainly a positive and the city centre and the High Street can be reached rather easily.

Negative Reviews

Tired and Dated Decor

The Bacon Arms is in need of a refurbishment as most of the decor and room features feel old, tired and dated As the building is 400 years old some deterioration is to be expected but the overall character of the hotel is suffering as a result of a lack of attention to these details.

Cleanliness Issues Throughout

Several guests have remarked on the overall cleanliness of the hotel and the cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms Many guests have complained of a sense of damp in their rooms as well as throughout the hotel itself Guests have also remarked on the collection of dust in the rooms as well as a dirty smell in many rooms and bathrooms Located near a busy street this also means that noise from below can be disturbing and the curtains are too thin to properly block out the light from the street below or from passing cars.

Rooms Lack Ventilation

As the windows within the room are sealed shut and the rooms also lack air conditioning this can lead to the rooms feeling very stuffy This coupled with the general uncleanliness of the rooms can create an unpleasant atmosphere.
