We were assured that if we arrived before 6:45pm our cycles would be locked up on arrival, the hotel had a 'large table' in the dining room and were unable to lock our cycles away for 2 1/2 hours in the mean time we had to leave them on the pavement outside secured with a cycle lock. There were roughly... More

We chose this Hotel because it stated in very positive terms that it was 'dog friendly'. Although our two dogs were allowed in the Hotel and our room, there was no facility for taking the dogs out for obvious needs withouy having to walk a considerable distance to the the beech. Not at all convenient if the need comes in... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night for our wedding anniversary. We had visited previously but primarily chose this B&B because they offered a one night stay on a weekend. On arrival we received a lovely warm welcome and were shown to our room. There was plenty of information provided about the local area which was helpful. We were impressed... More

Stayed here for 2 nights beginning of May. Our room was adequate, with the mornings getting lighter earlier, darker curtains or blinds would be useful. No hairdryer in room, I managed but this might be a problem for other people. We were able to take our dog for which no extra charge was made, thank you. We had a nice... More

My wife and I, plus 2 dogs, had such a good experience of the H & A when we stayed here 5/6 years ago that we've always meant to return - and eventually we did, 10 days ago, but it was a mistake to go back. The staff are still as friendly and helpful as before, dogs are still welcome... More

The modern and upmarket feel of the downstairs bar and lounges is not reflected in the upstairs accommodation. Having said that the room, Curlew, was adequate and only spoiled by having a frosted glass window, making it feel a bit like sleeping in a loo. The ensuite bathroom itself was small and the shower took some considerable time to deliver... More

We stayed at the Hope and Anchor at the end of last year and enjoyed our stay so we went back again in March with another couple. We were pleased to see that it was being decorated and look forward to returning later this year to see it completed. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly. No... More

We stayed at the Hope and Anchor a couple of years ago, so we were expecting a pub type interior. Slightly surprised at how much it has changed as instead of the seats in the window and relaxing atmosphere it now looks like a Little Chef, albeit a Little Chef trying to be a bit more upmarket. We were quickly... More

It was like stepping into a 1960's room it was desperately in need of a huge makeover although to be fair the staff were decorating the bar area. On a plus side the food was delicious and the staff were friendly.
