My boyfriend and I were on a holiday trip around cornwall and devon during the summer. This was the first place to stay on our trip and we came across this place because of the nice looking website. Someone did a good job there!
We entered the pub and went to "reception" and I already had some kind of an idea what the stay is going to be...
The reception was cluttered full with clothes, old boxes, dusty books etc. The pub dog was trying to get out of the reception area but there was a big wooden board in the way, blocking him in. The board was dirty with filthy marks and scratches.
We went upstairs and the member of staff opened a room, had a glance in and then said: Oh this is not cleaned yet... " He was going back downstairs and getting another set of keys. He showed us another room, the family room. With a seperate room with bunk beds. We were told to only sleep in the double.
The room was dirty, the seat was ripped, the bed sheets had some black spots on them. Looking like make up... The carpet was looking old and filthy.
In the bathroom was a carpet, again not looking any fresh, the sides of the bath were dirty and the shower door broken...
We booked for about three days and realised we would like to change our accomendation asap. Because it was the weekend most places were full we struggeld a bit to find a place and finally we found a holiday flat in Woolacombe for the next day.
We had to stay for one night. The pub was noisy downstairs and during the night the
fire alarm went off.
The breakfast was cheap, which you could see and taste.
This was since years ago one of the worst stays I ever experienced. For what they deliver it should cost half!
I would not recommend this place nor stay there again!

I am truly sad to read this review because this person never spoke to us so we may solve the problem.
