I tried several times by e-mail direct to Alma Inn and also through their booking agent Eviivo to cancel our booking. Our e-mails were never acknowledged until a few days beforehand when they came back to me as "rejected by server". a phone call to the booking agent denied all responsibility even though they had receipted the deposit. They then... More

I have been to this pub a few times now as I have just moved to the area. Every time I have had a few drinks and food and it has been brilliant every time. Lovely chilled out atmosphere with a really good selection of real ales behind the bar. The food is extremely reasonably priced and portions are very... More

We were put in this hotel as an overflow for a large family gathering in another hotel on the other side of the town. The rooms are over the pub bar so there is a lot of noise from their regular punters downstairs until closing time but it didn't last too long. The very best thing about this place for... More

First the positives: The Alma is in a lovely spot, and the view from our room was beautiful. The room was also very comfortable and clean - the bed was spot on for my taste (quite firm). The breakfast was okay, and the real ales and wine both lived up to expectations. This is definitely a pub with rooms rather... More

On arrival landlady rude and miserable. Pushing past me instead of using manners politely. Looking around the place is scruffy with bobbled seat cushions which we had to sit on with dog hair entwined in to them. Service from the two young girls were spot on. Although we were told we had to wait nearly an hour as a table... More

Hello There, glad to share one of my worst experience I ever had with a hotel. Travelling for business for more then 25 years, I use a lot of these "tools “to select my hotel before a trip. Tripadvisor being one of them too, I get very precious information as we all do. So, I think important to share with... More

We have just had a brilliant 1 nights stay at the Alma Inn, we couldn't fault anything. The welcome we received was friendly and curtious. The rooms were clean and the tea tray well stocked. We booked an evening meal in the Alma Inn, which was delicious, the host was really helpful with the choices and made an extra effort... More

Quite frankly, l dont think the previous 2 reviewers could have stayed at The Alma Inn (and unbelievably, yes, it is possible to write a review about an establishment without having ever been there...which quite frankly makes the whole 'Tripadviser' thing wholly wrong, and should not exist, for that reason, plus a restaurant/pub/hotel etc not being allowed to opt out...

Lovely polite young bar staff but unbelievably rude Landlord and Lady. Went to see the New Year Mummers Play so the pub was very busy. We were at one end of the bar. There was room to get past us and we were moving as needed to let staff through. After being there for an hour, the landlord pushed past... More

We stayed here on Saturday 28th December. We love the Alma pub and have been many times. We needed somewhere to stay in the area and opted for the Alma. The bedrooms are at the top of the stairs above the pub kitchen, the door that might have stopped the smell of grease permeating everything in the room was vedged... More
