I stayed here just the one night with my partner, it was part of a 3 day deal we booked through offtherails.co.uk
I'm glad we stayed only the one night. After a long day cycling about 17 miles etc we arrived to be told off by a rambler for standing the bikes up against a table outside. I had no where else to put them and told her what for.. so my first experiencer of this inn was rambler rage!
We then got shown to our room by bar staff. The inn is very old and has some history (as we were constantly rminded of!) but the room was disgracefull. The bed was comfortable and the bedding clean crisps and ironed but the bath was minging with enamel falling off and yellow stains. The decor throughout was also mis matched and the ceiling looked like it was about to cave in with damp.
We had a meal which was delish and then retired to the room as there was a group of ramblers who were very very drunk and were becoming abusive. Well, we didn't drop off till at least 1.15am as the noise from the bar below and drunks outside waitin for their landrover taxi's was horrendous!
So i thoroughly enjoyed getting up for brekkie at 7.45 and making the loudest noise up and down the hotel ever. now that was fun.
full english was nice, you have cereals etc beforehand. coffee tasted like rust so i had to swap it for tea.
we went off on out 20 mile trip and got really soaked to the skin. we returned for our luggage and asked if we could change in the loo's to which the old guy of the inn agreed with much disagreement on his face!
after our night at the waddington arms, waddington, staying in this inn just didn't do it for me. i suddenly became a snob and my expectations of hotels etc became higher!
the village was pretty but there are no other pubs to venture out to and only a post office and a gift shop.
i wouldn't stay here again. if you fancy splashing out a little then stop at the whitewell inn up the road.. this was a 5 star place and was luxurious.. prices start at 96 quid.
