I stayed here on a recent business trip. I am not a fastidious traveler, all I want is a clean room, plenty of hot water in a clean bath room and a comfortable bed. The room I stayed in was the pits, one step above camping. It was a large room lit by just one window about 2 foot by... More

I have known this pub and B&B for many years. It is just recovering from a period when it was allowed to run down. Happily, the trend is now reversed and it is now immaculately clean and the service is excellent. The breakfast is first class, a real full English of the old fashioned type. During the working week the... More

My wife and I stayed one night in order to attend a nearby wedding. The welcome from the lady staff member was excellent, she could not have been more helpful. However, the good experiences ended here. The room was TINY, there were no wardrobes, no hooks anywhere to hang our clothes, the furniture was non existent, the shower worked intermittently,... More

We stayed only one night thankfully! We felt it was more for working men than couples as the notice on the door to the rooms read "please take your work boots off before entering!" The room was clean but tired and our television was black and white and it kept making strange popping noises! We had no heat except for... More

The single room is very tired looking and needs attention. I can cope with dated decor but it would be simple and inexpensive to provide a decent (non lumpy) bed and a new (non sticky) carpet. I got several bites on the lower leg by something during my stay. The plumbing in this room was interesting and completing my shower... More
