This was a trip of two experiences, one awful and one very good. The awful is that it is in a state of disrepair, windows not shutting properly, poor finish as in bathroom door did not close plug sockets coming away from the wall. The owner did try and put this down to the charm of its age, however my... More

Me and my husband stayed here as a last minute break, we loved our stay here! Food was great and the accommodation was amazing ( we stayed in one of the cabins). We will definitely be coming back again in the future. The only criticism I would give is that it could do with a tidy up in communal areas,... More

Shelton mallet seems to be closed on a Sunday but found a pub serving food. Did not eat here. Stayed in a wood cabin. OK. Bed a bit hard and lighting not brilliant. Electric shower stuck on very hot with hardly any pressure. Breakfast good though.

Great food, drink, customer service with a charm you have to feel to believe. It felt like stepping back in time with all the relics and tastefully displayed nic nacs. The meals were big and flavours even bigger, by the looks of the age of the place they've perfected their craft of making weary travellers welcome over the ages.

The good thing about the hotel when I booked it was it was cheap. It was obvious though when I turned up that there was a reason for this. To get into the hotel you have to open a metal gate and walk across the courtyard. There was a "Beware of the dog" sign on the gate and behind the... More

I have only been for Sunday lunch which was very good. I have not tired anything off the menu but if the Sunday lunch is anything to go by I certainly will be going back for a meal. Nice seating area outside.

In truth a pub with accommodation and a damn good chef! Rooms are adequate with en-suite and usual facilities and are commensurate with the cost. Beer is very good and the food was excellent! Very friendly and helpful staff. Have made a mental note to revisit and am happy to recommend
