We stayed two nights in room 1 with a double and single bed. The single room was hidden away from the double to allow privacy. Free WiFi helps keep a teenager entertained. Room was well presented with plenty of towels and complimentary toiletries. We ate in the bar which was very busy. A good menu choice with local produce. The...

Not the most modern hotel in the town but a really friendly staff, a good place to stay with excellent food and ideally situated to explore surrounding places of interest. Stayed here for three nights. Bed in room one could do with a new mattress, lighting was not very bright in the room and a little decorating would be welcomed,...

The staff were friendly enough, The room was shabby and dirty and although they had put a chemical cleaner down the toilet it had not been cleaned of the previous guests faeces. The bed had someone's hair in it. We could not spend the night there so we told the staff who did not seem surprised.

Old town-centre pub/hotel. Had a stop over on a rail journey, handily placed by the main bus stops and five minute walk from the station. Room was large and fairly clean, though it smelt a bit of something (drains?). Single glazed old sash windows, pouring with condensation in the morning, probably in a conservation area so can't be replaced, but...

Lovely meal, cheesy garlic bread delicious! Had coffee in garden to start, just some tables and fruit trees. Could take dogs in so sat in snug to eat, very nice. Went on Wednesday which is market day so quite busy.

I booked this Hotel as I was so pleased with my stay in August 2015 and I can honestly say I wish I hadn't. Upon arrival it was quite busy but the young lady who was trying to book us in was being shouted at to sort the glasses out, thankfully she told the other staff member that she would...

We stopped for lunch at 1.30 here. The barmaid was having an intriguing conversation with a friend or off-duty colleague, while taking our order. While hearing about their drunken exploits of the night before was interesting, it didn't get the order taken in a timely manner, or the table we were at cleared from the previous users ... the food...

I booked the White Lion for a family event close by, on arrival we ate in the bar and were quite pleased with what we'd ordered. Our family room (No 1) was very pleasant and actually had a separate room for the third bed which was unexpected. The furnishings were homely and bright and the room was nice and clean....
