Stayed overnight before flying early in the morning. Beautiful room. Although we arrived late, the pub made us sandwiches. Parked car for 2 weeks at £3.00 per night. Really reasonable. 10 min taxi drive to airport sorted by hotel, which cost £9.00. Much better than chain hotels, and we like to support independent businesses.

A pub restaurant with a lodge building housing about 20 rooms. The rooms have been very nicely appointed and very well finished. No complaints on quality or quality of sleep. Plenty of car parking space in a safe village type of environment. Had to leave early so can't comment on breakfast. Would have given it 5 stars but restaurant was... More

We popped in for a midweek lunch and were surprised that (a) only six people in the place and (b) the entire interior is in desperate deed of a refurb or at least a lick of paint and new carpets. However the food was good and the service extremely friendly. Oh yes, the beer was excellent ! What a shame... More

Stayed here for 2 nights midweek with my husband. At £70 a night the bedroom was much better than expected. Very modern yet comfortable although I did find the mattress far too firm for me but that's just my preference. Lovely big shower but disappointed there wasn't a bath.
