Terrible breakfast, bad service, not very clean. Decor is 1970's and not been updated since. Bathroom orange with dodgey tiling. No bedside table or bedside lights, one tea bag in tea making facilities. You have to pay for wifi.

If you need an average hotel here you'll find a decent bed and hot water. But forget about even basic extras, such as a bedside table/light. One day they didn't make the room, simply tucked the sheets in. And the rooms were never cleaned. I noticed because the second day when coming back from a walk in the countryside we... More

Never experienced this before, Family room is old muck and right above the pub so I could actually follow conversations from guests below from... More

What a joke, ok rooms are clean but no refreshment facilities,breakfast consited of a small box of cornflackes and a slce of toast, the £65 per night is paramount to theft. p.s. his beer is discuisting.

Only a deeply unhappy hotel owner could work so hard to make people's stay such a misery. It can only be the shortage of local competition that keeps this dire place in business. Despite the booking confirmation saying check-in until 22.00 when I rang at 19.00 to ask about parking I was immediately attacked by the owner, Claudio, who said... More

ClaudioGP, Owner at Chequers Inn Hotel, responded to this review

I am sorry you had a bad experience here. You should have been told on arrival that breakfast is free of charge and is continental (Tea/coffee, rolls) there never has been ham, cheese, eggs or anything else offered as part of this complimentary breakfast as all prices are 'Room Only'. If you were not told or did not read the... More
