Advertised as hotel and resturaunt but only breakfast being served from kitchen at the moment. Very friendly and walkable to two pubs with food in the village. Some nice walking locally but also some private land with points of interest that don't have access ;-(

Disliked: Cleanliness
The overall stay at the hotel was nice staff was very friendly think it’s a bit overpriced for what u get there was also a few dusty areas with a few hanging cobwebs about breakfast was nice but not enough on your plate so could do with being bigger an also think it needs a wider selection of choices for breakfast an expensive if not included in the stay

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness
The building is lovely and old, could do with some TLC and updating in the bedroom and bathroom. I felt the the evening staff were unwelcoming, I felt like an inconvenience to their day! I was also a little shocked when I was told they leave once the last person is checked in at night! Not very professional, someone should always be on duty! The staff in the morning were polar opposites, they were happy, kind looked after us treated us like the guests we are! I wouldn’t stay there again as the evening staff really put me off!
