Hambro Arms
Ranked #2 of 3 Milton Abbas B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 20, 2008

This beautifully situated inn was a huge disappointment, primarily because of their attitude to small children. We were a party travelling with a 1-year-old and two 2-year-olds. Our children are generaly well behaved and we have received compliments in the past about how well behaved they are in restaurants, etc. But on this occasion we were made to feel utterly unwelcome. One of our children was tapping a pepper pot on the table for less than 10 seconds as my partner went to stop him and the landlord/bar person pointed aggressively and raised his voice at our child. This was a ludicrous over-reaction and utterly inappropriate.

From the very beginning, we were treated coldly . We are experienced travellers with our young children and I can say that this is the worst experience we have ever had. If you have young children, I would not advise using this establishment.

Furthermore, if the place doesn't welcome young children, then they should say so. We were very happy to leave and go elsewhere.

Stayed: August 2008
