Goodish

Great rooms but food and drinks are very pricey.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Upon arrival we were told that there was a £6 parking charge. Refundable if you spent X amount in the pub. We were only there to sleep and have the included breakfast, which was good. But costly if not included. This parking charge is outrageous. The room needs an update, but comfortable bed. Quality bedding. Polite but somber staff.,

Very good food

The feature room was nice but smelled musty. Location was very odd. On the plus side the room was clean and comfortable. The food was exceptional. Our evening meal and breakfasts were excellent.
