Pleasant enough hotel, but you need to be aware of a few minor points. I don’t know if our room was indicative of the others in the hotel, but this one was not really suitable for larger people. The bed was a standard double which, for someone over 6ft is always going to be an issue. That’s not really the... More

First impressions not great, but friendly welcome and pleasant staff. Clean room and bath room, but no bedside light ! Did not eat in the hotel. However what I saw being served looked good. Would return if back working nearby. Bar is very good value.

The building is nearly 300 years old and has a few faults but it has a lot of character. stayed in room 7 what was a... More

Sounded great on the website and ideally suited to visiting friends and relatives in the area. How we laughed when we noticed that someone had scratched fawlty towers into the stair bannister. How we laughed less when read the printed and stained notice dated December 2013 on the bed apologising that the premises had new owners and sorry for disruption... More

Living locally we thought we'd give the bar another chance, although quiet when we entered we asked for a bottle of red of which they had 1 type, we did also pass comment on the fact that they were playing Xmas music but it wasn't kindly taken. we sat at a sticky table (which could have easily been cleaned given...

Carrie Nelson further to your review we confirm the following: Its erroneous to say we only have one type of red wine, we have three house types that are sold buy the graft or glass as well as bottles of red. If the bottles of red were low in selection then this would be due to large sales which would... More
