Staff are friendly, helpful and sweet - even when a bedraggled youth turns up without a booking! The food is excellent, and served with conversation and good humour. Rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable, beautifully presented, and equipped with everything you could need. I would recommend 'The Good Intent' to anyone in any circumstances!

Our party of 14 (9 adults/5children) turned up on a bank holiday without booking and were made to feel really welcome. The staff were friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The food was delicious and freshly prepared. I wish we lived nearer!

Warm atmosphere, lovely staff and fab food. Great live music. Couldn't fault at all, I think we are going to be one of the 'regulars'. Halloween party was absolutely great fun! I would definitely recommend it.

I stayed here recently on an impromptu visit to visit friends. The staff were all very friendly, and couldn't have been more helpful. The room was a really nice size, and the bathroom was huge. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was lovely and warm, which is a contrast to some of the previous comments. It is a... More

We stayed here overnight as we were at a wedding near by so we didn't spend much time there in the evening. When we arrived though the staff were really nice and showed us to our rooms. They were both really nice, good size rooms. really clean with everything we needed and comfortable beds. The decoration was a little dated,... More

I called in having driven by and seen the chaulk board outside advertising bed and breakfast. I checked here prior to calling in, and wasn't too sure due to the couple of bad reviews. The management has changed and the welcome couldn't have been better. The room was reasonably priced for the area, clean and comfortable. The menu of evening... More
