“Dont stay”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

i recently stayed at the fountain inn for one night. I could not check in until 6pm as they were not open and i was not made aware of this at the time of booking. It was a major inconvenience. Upon arrival the owner i presume was very rude and unwelcoming. The room was was small and very cold, the bed was extremely uncomfortable, leaving you with back ache in the morning. I could also hear everything from the pub below. When i entered the bar for some food everyone just stared, cleary obvious i was not a regular and did not belong. Traveling as a single female, this was very intimidating. The only saving grace was the food. My dinner was delicious and presented well, same for the breakfast. I wouldnt recommend this as a getaway!!

We came here for three nights to get away from it all with the dogs. The rooms were spotless. The cleaner even cleaned the dogs food bowl! The room was lovely, the village quaint and community spirited. The locals were friendly and welcoming in the pub too. Food plentiful and breakfast wholesome while at the same time accomodating any dietary requirements. Wonderful to find somewhere that served outdoor bred (free range) bacon etc. I was able to eat ethically.
The dogs were welcomed and given dog treats in the bar too. We are responsible dog owners and we towelled them down and wiped their feet before bringing them through the door and always kept them with us but you'd never believe dogs had been there; not a hair or a whiff.
What a relaxing few days.

Stayed at the Fountain for 2 nights with my mum and my 9month old daughter. The room was lovely very clean and beds were very comfortable. Very accomadating with regurds to my daughter offering to provide a bed guard ( we had brought a travel cot) providing a highchair. The food was very very nice and were good portions, people were very chatty and made you feel a home. would stay again:)

I booked the hotel through booking.com and when we got to the pub at 2300 hours was told that the hotel had been fully booked for months even though we had booked the room that day. They did find us another room at a thoroughly unsuitable noisy place nearby but we had to drive home. They were entirely unpleasant - would avoid in future.
