Property condition


Clean and tidy but a few things amis when you look closer. Window blinds not great.... shower pretty useless...... toilet constantly flushes.... The initial room decor looks great on first impact.... however the more time you spend this less it apeals.... On the plus side the service feels right for this type of accommodation. Restaurant area looks inviting but we didn't have time to sample....

4/5 Good

A thoroughly modernised old building

This well decorated old Inn is more of a busy, noisy restaurant (on the Friday evening we stayed) than a hotel. Beware that there are different prices for the bedrooms and that booking directly using the hotel's phone number will mean that breakfast should be included, rather than being charged at £15 extra per person via a website like hotels.com. When I arrived after a long journey, the 2nd sentence was asking with whom I had booked. , The availability of hot water was fantastic but Warren bedroom could usefully do with a table next to the washbasin for ones toiletries. A couple of the little tubs of milk curdled our early morning tea. I should have asked for a jug of freshmilk. There was only one bedroom chair in our spacious bedroom and not many comfy chairs in the modern bar-restaurant area. The lack of soft furnishings downstairs made noise levels very high mid to late evening. There was no separate lounge-sitting area for guests, no real ale, but the food was quite nice and the local chilled cider was refreshing.
