We first visited two years ago and have been back twice since, most recently June of this year. The rooms are superb terms of decor/attention to detail and everything you could think of wanting is at hand.All staff are friendly and attentive to customer needs. The breakfast options are first class and I laughed each morning as I declined 'full... More

Over many years whilst on business and holiday, I have had the privilege (and misfortune) to stay in some of the UK's best (and worst) hotels and guest houses and have to say that in my experience, the Old Rectory rates very highly indeed. Breakfast in particular is worthy of special mention. Of excellent quality with a wide choice, it... More

Thank you.your review is precise, accurate and well defined. we describe ourselves as a restored "Victorian " Rectory..lots of heavy gilt picture frames, even the odd aspidistra. we cannot change the character of the Old Rectory, it is over 150 years old.we choose Victorian decore and furniture that blend in, our staff or uniformed, and offer friendly attentive service. a...

So on arrival at the old rectory we were shown to our room which could only be described as chintzy. Yes there was tea coffee water etc. good job as the bathroom cold tap just turned around and around. The room itself was small and looking at my booking it said king room but this was just a double totally... More

at £79.95 this is our least expensive room. basic ,but spotlessly clean...realistically, if you were hoping for a jacuzzi bath, antique four poster or spa bath ,perhaps you were being unrealistic. the room has been thoroughly checked, we cannot agree with your description. Anyone looking at the other reviews may well wonder why such a severe review stands out amongst... More

We booked this B&B pretty much at random but have to say we chose well ! We arrived very early and therefore the room was understandably not ready but we were greeted very politely and given good information in terms of finding our way around and getting lunch. We returned to the hotel after 4pm (check in time) and again... More

Booked this through 'Booking.com' as a last minute weekend away as a couple. However the description of the room on the site was not the same as the room the B&B provided. When this was brought up the proprietors kindly said that the room had been redecorated and that the descriptions on websites not updated - we were not offered... More

Let me start with an apology, it is not our policy disappoint. we did not think that we had, until we read your review score. we put you into a room that was superior, not inferior ,to the room you booked. which would be why we never thought that you would be expecting some "compensation "you clearly think that you...
