Just returned today with my daughter from a two night stay at The New Hobbit. This hotel is up a hill and therefore the views were amazing. You can see for miles. The building is a long stone-built type and there are two ways in. The main entrance you need to walk up about 8 or nine steps, once you are in as a resident there is another door further up the street which once inside you walk up two carpeted steps to your bedroom landing. We stayed in Room 10 which faced the front and had a great view. The room was nicely done although modest, lovely tiled bathroom with bath and overhead shower. Towels, toiletries, kettle and a variety of drinks, tv and a really comfortable bed. The staff were all young and very pleasant at all times. We ate breakfast and there was tea, coffee, cereals, toast, variety of preserves, fresh fruit and yohurt. Then the full English but if this was too much you have something else, ie I had scrambled eggs on toast and there was enough for two people. We also had two evening meals while we were there. If you eat before 8.00pm then you get two courses for £10 which is very reasonable. The starters are big and the batter was delicious, ie, Deep fried camembert with sauce in the lightest crispy batter, side salad too. I had a rack of ribs which was huge with chunky chips, salad and sauce. My daughter Paula had Lasagne and garlic bread. They also sell an onion ring stack with contained at least six lightly battered onion rings and that was huge too. My opinion is this, very good tasty food which is filling and delicious. Not small and fancy looking but well presented and good food. Very attentive staff and nice ambience. I would recommend this hotel to anyone except perhaps disabled people with a walking difficulty.
