We stayed here for two nights on arrival we were greeted by a young man who showed us to our room which was ground floor as requested, as we were going to the room I commented that they had no disabled parking and was promptly told they had applied for permission to have one but it was refused due to...

The pub is tatty, the room we had was damp, noisy and had squeaky uncomfortable twin beds. The noise came from hearing other people talking and moving upstairs. . The whole room smelt damp. The curtains were fitted poorly, had missing rings and let in light. The bathroom and wardroble were damp, mouldy, smelly and old. The lamp in the... More

Paper thin walls ensured I could hear the kitchen staff making a racket till 23.30 and when they stopped I could hear my neighbours creaky floorboards and snoring for hours as I lay on an old mattress with the lumpiest pillows I've ever had to use. The staff were friendly when informing me they had nothing for me but some... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights only because there was no hotel available in neighboring Woodstock due to a sports event. Used towels that I left on the bathroom floor, were rehanged wet, as clean towels. Requested to replace a light bulb were ignored. Complaints were answered as: “we are not a 5 stars hotel”.

An ancient, unkempt roadside inn which desperately needs modernisation and refurbishment and presently claims to be a hotel! The bar is dirty with sticky table tops and tacky carpets and the usual accompanying odours. The staff were pleasant and helpful on arrival, promising clean towels should we require new towels whilst staying for 2 nights. The rooms are equally disappointing... More

We spent 2 nights here and on first stepping into the bar to check in I knew it was a mistake! The pub/bar area had seen better days, was tatty and sticky and the ceiling was heavily marked with brown stains presumably from a long gone leak. Our room was no better...where shall I start! The carpet was old, tattered,... More

This evening I called Kate and we ventured out and decided to stop here for a drink. Much to Kate's surprise, and delight, discovered that they did an Indian Menu after eight p.m. I cannot eat Indian meals but was quite happy to watch Kate really enjoy herself. She ordered several side dishes, the names of which I have no... More

Room was ok, small but serviceable, however, we were disappointed to be told we could not order an evening meal as they had a party going on, we sat in the beer garden by the canal which was lovely but we had wanted to stay and eat there, so that we could chill out. We did find a pub which... More
