I have read the couple of comments about a 'cold' welcome. Not the Tea Horse Hostel, I know. Two of us stayed here, Easter 2012, when the Town Mill Hotel was full. We turned up at the door and were made very welcome. The owner made us tea and the next morning came up to our room to cook us a wonderful breakfast, including waffles. Yummy.
Sad, to only stay one night. Couldn't wait to return. Shall be returning for two nights with a different friend in October.2013.
