We stayed for one night with friends at this hotel. Our advice would be to avoid rooms 9 and 10 as these two rooms are above the generator room and gents toilets. The door arm close on the gents loo was broken and the door slammed shut each time it was opened, well into the night. The rooms themselves were... More

Stayed here for 2 nights - had booked a family room but we got 2 connecting rooms - which was a bonus. First impression was that everything looked nice - nice furniture and clean white bed linen. On closer inspection however, this place is tired and needs a good overhaul - shower was rubbish - either freezing or boiling hot... More

Found Peter helpful at booking and pre-arrival. Seemingly popular pub with friendly locals. First impression on walking to room was not exactly spotless but in fairness once in room, all was clean and nice white bedding. Slightly strange finding our towels on the shower floor..... Watch corners of wooden beds - a couple of nice bruises as a souvenir! Beds... More

The description on booking.com is very misleading. The room was very very small with a small velux window, very claustrophobic. The shower door was barely hanging and it did not flush.. Breakfast mediocre, staff did not really care. Avoid weekend as the rooms are above a very noisy pub!

We stayed here earlier this week and had a family room. The room was large and clean. There are a few areas that could be improved, such as the water leak damage to the ceiling that hasn't been covered, the slow running cold water tap in the bathroom and the small amounts of wall paper that has been ripped. But... More

Stayed here for 3 nights midweek, tidy rooms and pub area is nice selling a verity of larger, cider & bitter. It is a popular local pub but does go quiet by 11 - 11.30. Food is good on site and the breakfasts are hearty. There are more places to eat nearby. Overall a very pleasant stay
