On arrival we were greeted by jake the owners dog and the place had an instant friendly, relaxed feel. I wanted to state that positive bit before the rest of this... More

Overall a nice stay in a quirky place. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast good and plentiful. The food in the restaurant looked good but we never tried it. We paid for superior rooms and were given the chalet style accommodation which is located around the garden. These are Scandinavian in style and my biggest criticism is that there... More

A week prior to our return from holiday we booked a room at the Dusthole hotel for one night. On arrival quite early in the afternoon we were told they had given our room to someone else and had not bothered to re-allocate us to another room, although the gentleman we spoke to was apologetic and offered to try to...

Can only review room 8 but makes you wonder about the rest. It was dreadful! Thankfully the sheets and towels were clean, the beer was good and the food okay BUT the room was dreadful. Not only where there gaps between the door and the door frame (outside door) but the gaps in the window where equally bad and the... More

Beer, food and staff all very pleasant. Butcombe's Ale (Rare Breed) in perfect condition and a bit too more-ish. The Silverside and Stilton pie and Cajun Chicken were extremely tasty and not for the feeble appetited. All in all an experience I can't wait to repeat, deciding which pie to eat will be the problem.
