I booked this hotel as a Group on earlier in the year - the receptionist when I booked was very pleasant and helpful but spoilt my inital impression by then telling me they didn't confirm the booking for Group on customers by email. Why? it doesn't cost anything.
On our arrival date we were greeted by the ? manager who was polite but slightly cool/distant. We were shown to our room on the second floor up a musty smelling set of stairs. Our big concern here was that although there were plenty of fire extinguishers they didn't appear to be any fire escape from the second floor. The room was a reasonable size and beautifully clean. Free Wifi was available and the TV had Sky, The bed was very comfortable - still using sheets and blankets here and decent size towels were also provided. The shower in the bathroom was very powerful and the toiletries provided were nice.Carpet on the bathroom floor was a bit dated and not very well fitted. Although we were on the main road opposite the pub it soon quietened down and we had a peaceful night.
The young girls on the bar and resturant were very friendly. Our main gripe with the evening meal was that although there was a reasonably varied choice of main courses (£5 extra for steak for Groupon customers) everyone had to pay £3 per item for chips/potatoes/salad or vegetables. So if you didn't you just got a lump of steak or piece of salmon - we found this slightly strange. The decor whilst I suppose it is supposed to be country cottage just comes across as a bit tired. We found the breakfast to be very good - £5 extra for Group on customers again if we wnated a full English! But the Continental was also fine with good selection of cereal, juices, yogart and pastries.
