Based here on business for 2 days and nights. Warm in every way as the weather raged outside. Really comfy room, bed and bedding; good shower and bath; excellent food; relaxing bar, lounge and open fires - and really friendly but not overbearing staff. I use hotels a lot, and this was really exceptional - and great value for money.... More

Stayed here for two nights with my wife and our friends, apart from having no water for the first 5 hours due to a break down with the local water company, we had an excellent stay, the rooms were spotless clean, the food was excellent and the staff very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. I Would definitely... More

I'm not one for writing reviews on hotels, inns or B&Bs, as I expect if you are paying for a service, it should be exceptional. However, this place 'blew me away'. I stay away from home regularly due to my job, so have a well rounded view of what Europe can offer. The Alma Inn served as a welcome retreat... More

Had a bit of an issue with the booking and their cancellation policy, but it was resolved. This was in February and mid week. Dinner and breakfast all very good. Room was OK but cold in the bathroom. I think it was room 6 but not sure.

A lovely old inn, rooms are furnished to a high standard, great size bathroom. The restaurant has an extensive menu at competitive prices & the breakfast is as good as you can get. Very quiet and peaceful location, great views of the moors, but still quite close to several attractions.

My husband and I stayed here and had bed breakfast and evening meal. We had a few drinks in the bar on arrival and the staff were working very hard setting up tables and chairs for a private party that night. They still had time to have a chat with us and ask if all was ok. We were joined... More

I've stayed at the Alma at least half a dozen times now, but have to say that the service there gets better and better. Last time I stayed, the restaurant had a fantastic looking Trio of Beef as a special, but when I ordered, they'd run out. The General Manager Ryan, offered then that the next time I stayed, the...

Had family lunch there yesterday. They decided it was a good idea to empty the cesspool in car park while we were having lunch. Doors and windows open. The smell of raw sewage was disgusting. Other guests had to move while we closed all the windows. There was no real remorse shown by batman or waitress just a sorry. Manager... More

Great location, placed on a hill with only the moors to surround it - wonderful views. Traditional old pub with well appointed rooms. We stay regularly as we work nearby. Food is absolutely spot on - the chicken and chorizo pasta is simply amazing. Breakfast is superb - they do what can only be described as a home made version... More

We visited in july for the first time. After arriving at the bar it took the waitress over 15 minutes to take our drink order. Leaving us standing at the bar. Once our drinks order was taken it took another 10 minutes to make. We were then shown through to our table. It seemed as if all the staff were... More
