Positive Reviews

Good quality rooms

Although the rooms don't entirely escape criticism, the vast majority of guests find the accommodation is clean and comfortable with a decent selection of included amenities. Many guests mention that they found the beds were of a good standard.

Lovely breakfast and dining

Guests comment favourably about the standard of the breakfast served at the Baskerville, with many finding the choice of items impressive. The kippers and Eggs Benedict are a real treat. Also, reviews suggest that the overall standard of dining is high.

Staff is friendly and helpful

A warm and friendly welcome seems to come as part of the deal at this pub/hotel. Guests consistently mention that they felt right at home here and comment that they found both managers and staff were exceptionally helpful.

Negative Reviews

Some guests found the rooms cold

A small number of guests say they found the rooms were a little on the cold side, although this is by no means the majority view.

Noise from pub

An equally small number of guests found that their room was subject to a little noise from the pub's restaurant and were also within earshot of some traffic noise. It appears that the rooms do not benefit from double glazing.

No children in restaurant at certain times

The restaurant at this hotel welcomes children aside from on Friday and Saturday evenings after 7pm. This is not typically a big problem, but may present an issue for families who are staying at the Baskerville over the weekend.
