Breakfast service once found was appalling, slow, discourteous and illogical. Bacon was rancid. Tea was stale - that takes some doing. Only instant coffee available. Room was left unserviced for the whole week and I had to ask for toilet rolls. Milk pots in room were all sour. I had to "break in for late entry" as front door (to...

Breakfast experience very disappointing no staff in restaurant at appointed time of 8.00a.m. No cereal, juice etc laid out.This happened both morning of our stay. Was served a lukewarm breakfast an hour after we sat down on the first day. No apologies from Manageress only from the cleaner who ended up doing the serving, if it wasn't for her there...

My family booked 6 rooms in the Black Lion as we all needed somewhere to stay at short notice in order to attend a very sad family event. The room my partner and I stayed in was very poor. The carpet had not been vacuumed, the bed valance sheets were dirty and the mattresses were old and sunken. The sink...

The hotel itself from out side looks interesting and from in side is just like other B&B places in the area. The furniture is very old and rooms are very noisy, but you will get what you paid for. We stayed for one night as we joined the wedding party, so for that purpose was really good enough. Thank you.

Room was on the high street with windows that seemed from 1920, the noise from passers by was bad but not compared to when the binmen came at 530am! Dinner was ok apart from the floor in the restaurant vibrating??? Breakfast was awful, had a bacon sandwich with ridiculous amount of butter on, managed to scrape some off but most...

First impressions didn't do justice to the service & food available here. It was late & near the end of serving time when we arrived, the back room was very clean & tidy. We were made to feel welcome & the food was really good, hoy & tasty.

I have visited the Black Lion a few times and had always had an enjoyable time there, but a visit to the inn last night was not a very pleasant one at all. The bar staff had faces like thunder, they were slow to serve despite the bar being quiet, rolled their eyes at our choice of music and swore...
