Stayed here on a deal which included three course meal and bed and breakfast, and thus this was very good value.
We had to being our son at short notice, hotel added rollaway bed for an extra £10 which was reasonable,
Unable to check in early but process itself swift and without complication. Bar and restaurant area has been given a make over with some thought, nice ambiance and atmosphere.
However, communal areas to rooms could be more in keeping with an old inn such as this. Black gloss paintwork and prison like grey carpet make for an austere welcome.
Our room had a comfortable enough bed, tv and tea and coffee facilities. Some toiletries and ironing board etc provided on request. Small window is missing arm lever and thus you could push it open so not particularly safe or secure, and window frames need attention. Tiny shower room and toilet added in what must be a storage cupboard coming off the landing. Not heated and probably the worst shower I have ever been in. Tank must be level as no gravity pressure and no pump fitted so in order to get more than the tiniest trickle out, you have to sit on floor of shower and keep shower head pointing downwards, the full length of the hose. Impossible.
The room could do with having ceiling removed, as it could be a beautiful vaulted space. I imagine whoever owns it has not spent much time or consideration on the decor or detail of the rooms, although obviously only saw one, number 9. This could be restored more sympathetically.
Our impression was that the focus is on the restaurant, and the hotel side of things is sadly of less importance. The food was excellent and good value. Busy for the whole evening with non residents.
Staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome.
I would visit the restaurant again for sure, but as far as country inns go, I would love to see a little more of the effort made on the dining experience, extend to the residential areas of this hotel.
