“good location - nothing special otherwise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2011

stayed for just one night - following the path of Henry VIII progress to the north of 1541

well located on the road out of the town - good Waitrose just over the way, and a bus stop outside

ate in the restaurant - lavender creme brulee - where the company was very mixed !
breakfast good, with just the dogs for company

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2010

After a dreadful journey up the M1 we arrived at the Prince of Wales, we introduced ourselves and were given a key and told its through the door and up the stairs. My husband was grumpy anyway with the traffic so was a bit concerned that noone showed us to the room. The room was fine, it was clean, had lots of towels and a nice big bed. There isn't much more to say really as we weren't the room very long. The owner/manager did tell me that they had a Farmer's market on from about 8 am the next day and would we move our car. We did but ended up getting a ticket but anyway, what I would like to say is that breakfast was a shambles. We sat at the table and waited for menus, the young girl came over and when we asked what we could have was told you tell me what you want and I will try to cook it!!! After 20 mins of waiting my breakfast finally arrived on a plate that was stone cold so the food was cold as well, my husbands' arrived 10 mins after mine and it was also cold, he didn't eat it. needless to say we didn't have breakfast the next day, and ended up in a Service station on the way home. A chef did arrive at about 9.45am and started shouting at the young girl who was obviously struggling, not that the restaurant was full just us and another couple. this spoiled what could have been a nice couple of days away from home. Luckily the sun shone for the Bride so it wasn't so bad after all.
