Positive Reviews

Delicious food

From breakfast through to dinner, the meals at this hotel are exceptional. They are great value and extremely tasty. Many of the guests have noted that after the full English breakfast, they were unable to eat until late afternoon.

Friendly staff

The people that work here are accommodating and do all that they can to make you feel welcome. Whether you need a room change or would like a heater for the room, nothing is too much trouble for them.

Tasteful décor

The rooms aren't what guests expect and are a pleasant surprise. It looks like a very old inn from the outside but is actually very tastefully decorated inside. It's quite modern with plenty of in-room amenities too.

Negative Reviews

Noisy rooms

The rooms at this small hotel are quite noisy at times as the windows are old. You'll hear a fair amount of traffic noise and if it's a busy night in the pub you might hear some noise from people heading home. It's not ideal for light sleepers.

Cold rooms

Some of the rooms have a problem with keeping the heat in and even if the staff offer you a heater it can be tough to stay warm. This is not what many guests expect from a hotel that has central heating.
