Negative Reviews

Terrible food

The restaurant serves food most of the day to guests and the public. There are many reviews which state the food is microwaved, cold, and does not match the description on the menu.

Drab net curtains around the four poster

There are rooms which come with a four poster beds and some previous guests have complained about the net curtains surrounding the bed instead of proper drapes. They felt the owners had cut corners with the decor.

Awful bathrooms and dated rooms

The Inn has kept its traditional features and most of the rooms are this way also. The rooms are described as dated with awful coloured bathrooms suites however others have liked this as its in keeping with the age of the building.
