Excellent stay! We stayed on the 12th July 2014 in room 1. Small room but this didn't bother us as it had everything we needed. The bed was very comfy and everything was clean. We ate here for lunch and breakfast and both times the food was outstanding! Excellent customer service and really good location! Definitely would recommend and stay... More

Nice quiet pub - no TV screens (you can get those next door) so we had a lovely chilled time. Staff were very friendly and the landlord couldn't do enough. Food was good too. Thoroughly recommend it. Bit hard to find car park so go PAST the high street and take the next left and the road will bring you... More

Looked liked it had been recently decorated. Nice en suite as well. Breakfast was excellent with good quality food, the... More

When you book somewhere like Premier Inn you know what to expect. With the Olde Kings Arms that is not the case. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the linen was nice and there was plenty of hot water. The room we were in was up a narrow staircase and the floor boards creaked which is only to... More

I don't like staying in hotels but this was a present experience. We were welcomed by a very present man who showed us to our room. I use a walking stick and straight away he offered to change the room if we wanted. The room was bright and clean, there was tea and coffee provided. We had a meal which... More

Although the title sounds like I am going to rip this place apart, I am not. For the money paid my wife and I got a clean, visually pleasing and comfortable room. The chap who runs the place (or at least I assume he runs the place) was very welcoming and even took us to our room. All the way... More
