Gets the Job Done

The Family room is nice for a weekend away with a really comfy bed and linen along with a lovely bathroom. There was a lack of hot water however and my partner struggled to breath with the mold. The staff were really rude when I asked about the facilities. I asked if there was a kitchen and he said, “um yeah duh.”

Hi Miriam, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad you found the room comfortable. The hot water is scheduled for adjustment as we hit our winter months a little early. It is very unfortunate to hear about your interaction with the staff member, and I will be sure to look into this matter and address it with the member of staff. Regards Dyonne and the BMBH Team

Cheap, Clean & Easy

The title says it all. Cheap, clean & easy it was. Perfect if all you are after is a place to sleep and shower before going out for the day
