Start to finish - a disaster. Out of date. Odd owners. Poor service. An example is when appearing for breakfast a window in the door was being replaced sending dust everywhere as we were trying to eat! The owner told us this was the only time the window could be fixed, despite her confirming it had been broken since Christmas... More

The Copper Kettle is in a fantastic location and the couple who own it are pleasant and there is free wifi, BUT the whole place smells of old, dirty chip fat and has not been updated since the 1970's. The front door does not lock/unlock properly so it took us half an hour to get in when we returned in... More

We stopped in the area for one night. The couple running the place are very nice but the room was dirty, dusty, pillow cases were not changed, kettle was broken, shower was dreadful and did not dare to touch the tea cups ..... We did not stay there for the night in the end....

I arived at the copper kettle after a 2 hour drive to hear the land lady say there isn't a room available even though I had booked months in advance. Her excuse was she had double booked. After hearing her talk more about it not being her fault she pointed me in the direction to a local ladys house. This... More

We stayed two nights, while visiting for a family wedding. In a town with so much B&B accommdation, it’s hard to see how this place survives. Our room was no more than adequate, accessed via the very shabby staircase, and with a door lock that was difficult to operate. Generally, it was clean, though the carpets need more than a... More

Stayed here for two nights over a weekend in September. The hosts are old school but very welcoming and friendly. I was solo on a motorbike and this was securely parked in the shed. The room I was showed to was number 3 and was large and comfortable with an en-suite bathroom. Make no mistake - the decor, furnishings, magazines,... More

We ate here as part of a large group one lunchtime. It was not my choice and I should have followed my instinct and turned around a left the minute we walked in and the smell of old chip fat hit me. We should have realised that there would be a reason why a cafe in a busy market town... More

Stayed one night due to there being no other rooms available in the village that night. Very dated stuck in the 70's, but good enough for a one nighter. The owners where fine and friendly though others have posted on here that they were not. Certainly not a place to base yourselves for a few days but if you want... More
