Chris is an absolute gentleman. He greeted us with such warmth, which matched the 'toastiness' of the room. We'd had two bereavements and had to change our dates but this was very kindly and sympathetically changed without any problem and with great empathy. Thank you for this. Chris showed us to our room, brought us a tray with tea, cups,... More

It is off the beat but worth it. Beautiful area. We got a surprise when we arrived, the owner told us we could attend the prayer at the Monastery. What a treat. Then we got a surprise in the morning...4 inches of snow. The room was comfortable and warm and our hosts were very nice.

Terrible hotel. They say on booking that check-in is possible until 9pm. We were there at 9.15pm. Basically they shut down the reception, and there's no alive person there. The phone number also doesn't respond. We are in the middle of nowhere in the rain with no place to spend the night. More than that, they charg the whole price... More

We clearly inform you that reception hours for check in is between 1500 hours and 2100 hours. We ask that should you expect to arrive later to contact the hotel in advance. We also try to contact anyone that hasn't arrived prior to this time. If no contact is made one cannot expect reception to remain open for them. As... More

Got a wonderful welcome and a great night's sleep at the Pilgrim's Rest. Chris is a gentleman and couldn't have been any more helpful. The hotel is in a quiet & remote location - great for a travel weary guest to chill out and relax. The rooms were clean, quirky but well appointed. Bed only rate was a bargain.

Granted, being a bit out of town caused my husband some concern, until he was greeted at the door by the owner, David. We had initially planned on one night, but stayed two. Room was comfortable, peaceful. Breakfast was just right. David saw to our comfort.

Ive stayed here at least a dozen times over the last 6 years. The owners are very friendly and try very hard. Home cooked food but nothing fancy. Good honest value and tasty food. The rooms are quite basic however the bed is comfy and the shower works. Amazing value for money here and i hope to return soon.

Had a very comfortable room with big bathroom. Very friendly couple made us feel very welcome and showed us that they appreciated our custom. Will certainly go back there again. The food was excellent. Look forward to returning.

We booked for 1 night and decided to stay for 2. After arriving late and travel weary Dave made us a lovely meal. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is large. Outside the gardens are very quiet and peaceful. Food and service is beyond fault. The rooms are lovely, we had a very restful stay. Cannot recommend The Pilgrims Rest... More

Arrived with my friend for two nights, very relaxed quiet location, good rooms, very clean toilets and a good power shower in both our rooms. Slept well and enjoyed a very generous well thought out continental breakfast with fabulous coffee, staff friendly and helpful.

In a peaceful and quiet location, close to some truly spectacular countryside the Pilgrims Rest is a little paradise. Our rooms were spacious, clean and comfy, just what we needed for our nights stay. The food was delicious, all locally sourced and freshly cooked. The portions were amply big enough and the choice good. Our hosts were sooooo friendly and... More
