Stayed at The Rock after being transfered there by the Maes Manor after a "leak in the room". We were already out for the day when we were told we were being moved, having left our luggage at the Maes, so after a bit of worry about everything being sorted it was such a relief to arrive to a warm welcome at The Rock when we arrived after 10pm. Jennifer and Paul could not have been friendlier, ensuring that we were warm, putting the kettle on for us in the guest kitchen, it was all most welcome! And when we were shown the room we could not have been happier, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, couldn't have asked for more. Caught a glimpse of one of the other rooms the next morning and that too was equally impressive. Was really impressed with the extra touches in the room that you don't get in every hotel - cotton wool, bottled water and a clothes brush for example. There's even hairspray, painkillers,de-icer and a phone/device charger in the kitchen if you need them! Loved the feature of a kitchen for the guests, again it was spotlessly clean, and stocked with everything you could ever need - orange juice, milk, eggs, cheese, butter, meats for a continental breakfast, cereals, all sorts of bread, shortbread biscuits, I could go on! The table was all laid ready for the morning and we enjoyed a lovely breakfast, just the two of us.
After stumbling upon The Rock by accident we will definitely be going back again!

The former winners of the Enterprise Inns National Pub of the year competition have put their plans to emigrate down-under on hold. Having taken on the tenancy of The Rock in July, they have completely refurbished the entire hostelry throughout. We offer an elegant, well stocked bar, choice of real ales, interesting selection of wines and some old fashioned soft drinks which all catch the eye as you approach. The menu is comprehensive, predominantly fresh food based, catering for both those on the move lunchtimes, as well as those who prefer to linger.
