My only complaint was that the night receptionist wasn't particularly warm or polite when speaking to her, in fact she was downright awkward and bordering on rude.

Jailhouse is pretty good value for money, but we probably won't stay there again. We found it very difficult to sleep due to loud conversations in the common area outside the kitchen until the early hours of the morning. There were signs up asking for quiet after 9pm, but these were ignored and the staff seemed nowhere about. Disappointing.


Really clean and well looked after place and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. It's also great to have two TV areas with loads of DVDs to choose from, for those wet and windy days at the end of a trip!


It is a good place to stay. It is clean and organized. People are very friendly, and it is a good place to meet people.

We had a wonderful time at the Jailhouse and loved having our photos taken with the prison uniform and number! Thanks for a great stay. Jude
