Very nice smart room. Clean and nicely decorated with tea/coffee tray with fresh milk in a flask - nice touch! Good bathroom and excellent shower. TV reception was rubbish in the morning but it was only for the news in the background. Could have because of the terrible weather outside. Great food by a log fire with very friendly staff....

Staff very friendly in a superb location. A few of us in the group thought the food was way too salty. Service was really slow too - Although we were a group of 18 so guess that partially explains that.

I checked in for one night in November for a work stopover. The room was huge and the facilities were really nice. The food in the restaurant was very good and the ales on tap were excellent. The only downsides are that the wi-fi was very weak in the room i was staying in and the shower water backed up... More

This is a warm, friendly inn. We had a small, but comfortable en suite room. All the staff were efficient and eager to help. The food was excellent and we ended up eating here every night. There was one mix up over a food order and the manager dealt with this quickly and politely. There was a good breakfast choice... More

We stayed at the Steam Packet for two nights to celebrate my birthday and our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Throughout out stay we found the staff to be friendly and helpful. We stayed in Room 1 which had a wonderful view over the river. The room was perfect and had everything we needed (including a hospitality tray with fresh milk and... More

This is the place to eat a very good lunch, if you find yourself needing this. It has a carpark that probably sites about 30-40 cars but if you find that this slightly off town pub difficult to park in then just turn around and get into the lower town car park. Enough about cars. The Steam Packet Inn provides... More

Had another really nice stay at the steam packet We arrived at noon and was planning to find a place for lunch in the high street but one look at the specials board changed our mind. We had really nice Cornish sardines. Anyway, after looking at the evening menu we decided to have dinner there as well. I had game... More

We have stayed here a couple of times now and have loved it each time we stay. The staff are all super friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent and the breakfast is spot on. The rooms we have stayed in are a little awkward in their shape but they are beautifully done to a very... More

Ate here one rainy evening whilst on my own. Very welcoming staff, excellent beer (Doom bar) and nicely presented tasty meal. I ordered a lamb burger which looked great when it arrived, and proved to be very tasty. The other options on the menu looked impressive when served to fellow diners and I hope to get the chance to try... More

I wanted a Sunday roast; my wife wanted a light bite. The only free table was beside the blackboard. That wasn't a problem but the beam jutting out from the wall was. I understand restaurants need to make the most of their floor space, but this table really shouldn't have been there. That aside, all went swimmingly. The roast beef... More
