I stayed here with my 8 yr old son, we found the hotel quite easily, but had to ask directions to the car park around the back, we arrived fairly late and there were a lot of people outside the pub entrance smoking, which you had walk past to get to the hotel reception, my son didn't like that, if...

I chose this hotel as an overnight stop. The hotel is old, but the room was comfortable and spotlessly clean, with a good, modern bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful - nobody was at reception when I arrived, but they were easy to find at the bar. The room was quiet, but the bed was not particularly comfortable -... More

Stayed here for one night as it was very very noisy couldn't get to sleep at all. People downstairs in the pub area were sreaming and singing. Rooms were nice and good price but I wouldn't recommend staying here

This 1774 building is lovely. Rooms are small but sufficient and clean. Breakfast freshly cooked and served in the old stables. Very nice. Service with a smile. What more could you want for the night and at such a good price. "Locals" advised us against staying here. Can't tell you why though. Perfectly adequate. Little noisy until the pub shut... More

Plenty of free parking, good free WiFi in the room and down in the public areas. Evening meal good and excellent cooked breakfast which set us up for the day ahead. We booked for... More

Friendly staff, but busy in the bar so had to find our own way to the room. No frills check in. Average sized but well appointed room with quite a small bathroom. Plenty of noise from the Wedding Party revellers in the courtyard below, but not really a problem. Restaurant hours are quite poor with everything over by 2030 so... More

Not a pub-goer so can't comment on that part as have never used it, but sparsely aesthetic with cobbled yard 'garden'. The attached Bistro serves the best 'Full English' breakfast ever; the 'small' being more than enough for me if not others! They also do excellent 'lunches for a fiver', Mon- Fri, including yummy roasts with all trimmings [get there... More
