The bathroom had a huge shower and a lovely stand alone double ended bath. Tea and coffee were complimentary and the biscuits... More

The accommodation is spread out over several blocks all close by to each other, although I understand there are some newer room s a short distance away from the pub. Car parking access was tight but there was plenty of room once you navigate the narrow entrance. Check in was efficient and friendly and I was encouraged to see a... More

Stayed in room 27 at the top of the newer part of the hotel and loved the views especially liked the added touch of the telescope. The room was beautiful, light & airy. Also ate in the restaurant and was not disappointed. I had the vegetarian... More

We stayed here for one night recently as we needed to be nearby early the following morning. Our room (Vincent), was spacious, with a large and very comfortable bed. The bathroom was large, with both a freestanding bath and shower area. All the staff were friendly and courteous. The atmospheric inn, great beer and amazing food are the icing on... More

Service is always good and the atmosphere great . I am lucky to live in the village of Horndon on the hill and to have such a gem of a... More

This Inn dates from the 1500's and I chose it to stay with some colleagues from Germany as i wanted to show them a typical olde English Inn. From the minute you get there it just oozes history and character, oak beams also abound throughout the original buildings. We booked 3 suites (book early because they are always busy, although...
