I was very impressed with the high standard of the accommodation, very clean room and up to date facilities. The proprietors were very welcoming, the breakfast was superb, lots of choice and well presented, freshly cooked hot food to order.

It looks cute from the outside but is average inside. Nothing special, clean, breakfast too early at the weekend - over by 9.30 on a Sunday. Could hear other guests talking from about 6am which disrupted sleep. It feels like an old fashioned b&b/guest house and is overpriced.

The hotel is good and offers everything you need. Phil and Nicky are warm, efficient and good fun. By far the highlight of staying here is the quality of the food. Everything on your plate is perfect and largely locally sourced. The house red is excellent so make sure you order a bottle with your meal. You won't be disappointed.... More

We had 3 night break there. The Food was good, especially the breakfasts. The hosts were attentive. Handy for a number of open houses and gardens, national Trust and others. The shower was a little on the small side.

We thoroughly enjoyed this quaint British B&B. The owners were consummate hosts and prepared a great breakfast. The ceiling in the dining area is a bit low (if you are taller than 5' 11"). Parking area was a bit tight.

Nice, well-appointed room. Friendly couple running the show. Maybe my fault, but I expected it to be more of a pub, so disappointed not to find a proper bar. Food good - freshly prepared and appetising.

The owners were super friendly and greeted my friends and I warmly. Nice, historic building with updated areas. The room I occupied was quite comfortable and the dinner was fabulous. I really enjoyed my stay.

This is a pleasant, quaint hotel with charming delightful hosts who know how to make you feel welcome. As has been said before by the the management (Nikki and Philip) the rooms are not large but are comfortable and warm. There are tea and coffee facilities in the room. The on-suite bathroom like the room is "cosy" but big enough.... More
