We had a very pleasant stay and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The bed was so comfortable...best sleep I have had away from home for ages! Our room (with a four poster bed) was large and nicely furnished.....pipes were a tad noisy in the bathroom but the noise didn't go on for long. Great breakfast, with... More

We held one of our regional meetings here in March for the second year. Its a great venue but what sets it apart is the staff and the welcome you receive. Rooms vary but all are lovely though some are a tad small - but hey - its and old pub! Conference facilities were spot on. The bar was excellent... More

The rooms are quite compact just enough to accommodate you but very conveniently located. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean. In case you want some Indian food, number of restaurants are located nearby...in fact one is just opposite to the back side of the Hotel.

I stayed in a single room (room 5) for one night whilst attending a wedding. I used the room to change and sleep and saw little else of the Old Bull, however I was impressed with what I did see. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean, and bigger than I had expected - and it... More

I went with a group of 8 people for a pre Christmas dinner, starters were very good, mains were very good apart from 1 lamb shank which was solid and this was quickly put right by the very efficient staff and the desserts were very good. Why the low mark you wonder, well after the dessert one of the party... More

We help a regional conference here last week. The whole experience was superb. The hotel oozes character and the staff are utterly wonderful. The rooms are small, but hey, it's an old character hotel. Nevertheless, all was immaculate. Dinner was absolutely first class and better than many far more expensive restaurants. Overall, we have all agreed it will a definite... More

This is the first time that I have felt compelled to write a review about a stay at a hotel. This Inn catered for your every need. Nothing was too much trouble. We were staying here as we were attending a wedding about 20 mins away. We had ordered prior to our arrival a variety of sandwiches as we were... More

I stayed at the Old Bull Inn whilst on business. I found the check in process quite efficient. The room itself (room 9) was totally acceptable. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and coffee/tea making facilities provided. Bedding was lovely and clean. The bathroom was also very clean, and the shower was powerful and easily adjustable. Shampoo and shower... More
