This is a worthy aim. It's price, £48 for a double room, is encouraging. It is a 400 year old building, formerly two stone built cottages. On the... More

Thoroughly recommended. We used it as we had to put up five family members visiting from as far as Australia, so two stayed here. Its just been refurbished as... More

The food is tasty and generous, a personal favourite is the Goats Cheese Salad which is yet to disappoint! The rooms vary in standard, the doubles upstairs are lovely, the singles downstairs are a...

My boyfriend and I stayed here when we went to a Saints game. Just expected your usual pun with rooms but this place totally exceeded anything we had in mind! Genuine welcome, fab food, hotel standard rooms, great friendly rugby themed atmosphere and all brilliantly priced. Couldn't have asked for any more. Thank you so much, we will be back!
