I love this old inn came back again for my wedding anniversary we always pay a bit extra for the Chinese room, it is huge, a lovely four poster bed, sofa and the bathroom has large shower plus a cast iron bath. if you are looking for modern with double glazing then go somewhere else, this is a 17th century...

Another Wowcher deal and I can see why. The hotel is charming and quirky to say the least but our room was a disaster. After booking I read more reviews and rang to say please don't put us in room 11. The receptionist assured me that the room we had been allocated was a lovely room. She said that most... More

We'd been recommended to this place and on arrival thought we were on to a winner. The outside is so cute but once inside we were informed only one table remained and not in the restaurant. This was fine as the menu stretches across the site without change- it's provided on paper and not in a manner that leads you... More

This is the worst bed and breakfast that I have ever stayed in. The pictures on the website and posted across various booking websites are a complete bait and switch to what the actual B&B looks like. The room was filthy with yellow stained and stinky pillows, three broken light bulbs, a broken and ratty lamp shade, stained sheets and... More

We were shown to our room by hotel staff, who immediately noted that the light bulbs were out, but that they would send someone up to replace them promptly. In fact, three light bulbs had blown. The room was small, with cracks down the walls and across the ceiling. One of the two bedside lamps had a broken shade. The... More

Looked fab as we drove up and entered the bar/restaurant area but it was downhill from there.Initially the room looked OK-sat on the four poster Ikea type bed and noticed some fixtures missing and scatter cushions -well dirty!The walls were badly painted and broken tiles in bathroom and no shower!! Opened the blinds to freshen up the room and there... More

We booked with a Wowcher deal, after reading some of the recent comments we were a bit apprehensive, however we enjoyed a very pleasant overnight stay. It is a charming higgeldy piggeldy old inn, the bar and restaurant are decorated with dark red walls and hung with old oil paintings, country style decorations and rustic furniture abound. There are several... More
