It was a hot day and my kids were in need of some food and drink so we pulled in to this building and had a fabulous refreshing drink and a snack. We did not stay long, but were there long enough to learn that this historic building is being operated by a new team. The new decor is truly... More

What a great place to stay we stayed in lady pecektts room it was very clean and comfy, we had some... More

Stayed with my daugher at The Golden Fleece for 3 nights. It's under new management and the new people were very friendly and couldn't do enough to please us. The bedroom and en suite were spotless and the food was superb. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and we want to go back again sometime soon. Breakfast time isn't... More

I was really reluctant to write this review. I should point out that under a previous TripAdvisor username - SteveBB2007 - I wrote a glowing review of the Golden Fleece in 2007. We have in fact stayed here many times, enduring the surly landlady for the pleasures of its history, atmosphere, wonky stairs, ceilings, floors and the attentions of its... More

We spent Sunday 1st May at the Golden Fleece staying in the Shambles room. The hotel is over 500 yrs old so yes the floors do slope and yes the place does need a face lift, but I believe that would spoil the experience. It does feel like walking back in time when you enter the room. I did have... More

I stopped at the Golden Fleece last week and after reading some of the reviews on here, which I felt to be unfair, I thought I must commit to print. Firstly, this is an old English pub with letting rooms - not a five star hotel. You are paying for the experience of staying in an historic pub which is... More

We had never stayed in a haunted hotel before and were not really sure what to expect. However we woke in the middle of the night and both felt like we had been gently pushed down into the bed, which was quite scary. We felt the hotel was quite expensive to stay at and were asked to pay up front... More
