We had dinner here on a Saturday night after a walk in the surrounding countryside. While I agree with other reviewers that the hotel itself would benefit from bit of updating, our meal was excellent - really good cooking at value prices, good service and a comfortable bar area in which to relax after our walk. On our experience, would... More

Our room smelt awfully of damp coming from the bathroom, it was so off putting and even worse when you were in the bathroom taking a shower. We booked three rooms in this hotel, at midnight, my colleague found that two other guests had been given his room key and let themselves into his room while he was sleeping!!! The... More

The complaint which was made by your guest was investigated and resolved by myself on the day you made the complaint, which was the same day you checked out of the hotel. I spoke with the gentleman in question that afternoon over the telephone as I was not in until then and we agreed what would be done to resolve... More

Nestled right next to the Devil’s Punch Bowl itself, walkers couldn’t hope for a better base to explore this natural attraction. The accommodation is a long way from luxury: the bed in particular is too small, even for my 5’ 7” girlfriend, and the fire safety light is inside the room rather than in the corridor and bright enough to...

Thanks to James and staff for another great weekend with family & friends. The Elvis tribute was fab and we will look forward to other acts that will hopefully follow. The karaoke on the Saturday night rounded it all off with everyone in the pub joining in with the fun.

We arrived at the hotel on Thursday night at about 7ish. First thing that hit us was the smell. Very unpleasant like a nasty air freshner!!! We were dealt with fairly quickly at the reception. Went to our room which had the thinnest duvet cover on it and only a pillow each, we did a quick scan on the room... More

We found this hotel at the last minute when taking a quick trip to U.K. After making the booking I had some misgivings upon reading some of the negative reviews on this site. I need not have worried however. The manager and his staff were friendly and very helpful right from the moment my family walked in the door. I... More

A tired unloved building with a great history. Our visit started with a trudge over worn carpet to not being welcomed by the frosty unhappy chap behind the bar. After Mr unpleasant waved us impatiently to a table we were soon told that we were not allowed at this table with our dogs. The menu was a fair selection though... More

I stayed here with business for one night in January. My room was up in the attick, but was sl full of character. Lovely little lead lined windows, high ceilings and a comfy bed. In the height of the winter I relied on the electric to keep the room warm but I wasn't surprised it was cold when I drew... More

Hotel was in a good enough location for where we were visiting. Arrived at 9pm after travelling for for 4 hours. We were given our fob and told our room was on the 3rd floor. We made our way to our room. When entering the room we noticed a big cobweb hanging from the Middle of the ceiling. The painting... More

Ate in this hotel for the first time yesterday and what a disappointment. Although the food looked ok to begin with, soon realised all the meat had been reheated or over cooked as it was all tough and dark brown. The vegetables were completely tasteless and I just could not stomach them...obviously frozen then over cooked too. Such a shame... More
