I stayed here for one evening. The room had been recently decorated and was immaculately clean, albeit it quite gaudy by appearance for such a small room. However, I had dinner in the restaurant and it was delcious. The staff were absolutely delightful. It was not busy that evening, but the staff were exceptionally attentive and delightful. I would strongly... More

The good: • Friendly & helpful staff • Bedrooms comfortable & clean • Secure bike storage • Food & beer The poor: • Hotel guests should not pay daily, but on departure • Bills must be clearly itemised (essential should there be any dispute) • House Merlot was not drinkable! • Fresh coffee for breakfast a must • No visibility...

we bought a Groupon (or similar) 2 day deal and paid to stay an extra night, and they allowed us to take our dog, for a further fee. We had a few reservations after reading such mixed reviews, going from 5* down to 0*, but we thought we would chance it anyway. We ate at the hotel every evening, my... More

We booked this Inn several months in advance but due to a long term illness we could not make the date and phoned up over a month before the arrival date to change it to a later date when we were able to get there. This was all agreed. To our complete dismay and annoyance, on the day after the... More

It is some years since we visited this establishment and then our experience was disappointing. We were bought a gift for a meal by a family member who had heard things had changed. How right she was. We were looked after by Andre who was courteous and helpful throughout our 4 course meal. The food was good and creatively presented.... More

We stayed for two nights. We probably had the least attractive room as we had a dog with us, but it was perfectly adequate, warm and reasonably comfortable. There was no chair to sit on. The bathroom was clean and the hot water very plentiful. The dinner was well cooked but some of the menu choices were unavailable and the... More

Stayed here for one night only. We asked for an early breakfast at 7 am due to us having to set off early but were turned down. We did get a breakfast baguette to take away that was made the previous evening. We were disappointed after getting up at 6.30 am to find we had no soap or hot water... More
