“No view of the sea, but great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

We've eaten at a nearby pub with a view of the sea before and enjoyed basic pub food, but decided we wanted something a bit less canteen like from this winter lunchtime visit. My wife had been to the Mill House before with friends, but this was our first visit as a family. What did we like:

- Comfy sofas by the fire to relax in while our order was prepared
- An owner happy to go and fetch his own newspaper for my son and I to look at the sport section as someone in the pub already had the pub copy
- A chef who was prepared to put the sauce on the side for my fussy eating son
- Friendly service
- Fair prices

Why not 5*...
- No sea view when you've come to the beach is always a shame

The owner is very welcoming & the tasty food from the restaurant makes for an enjoyable meal.
I can't say the same of the bedrooms ... sparse, cold, tired at the edges & I found it difficult to get enough hot water for a warming bath.

Not sure there was a fitness room.

My companion had soup as a first course, which he reported as very good, and we both had the roast beef. The beef was delicious, the vegetables were fresh and pleasantly varied, and the Yorkshire pudding reminded us both of how our mothers used to make it. Neither of us could have found room for pudding. It really was a treat - very friendly service, a lovely room with interesting pictures of local views, and - with a glass or two of Merlot - a very pleasant occasion, and extremely good value.

Our first visit to The Mill House was for Sunday lunch. My first coursr of mussels in cider etc was excellent. However it was down hill thereafter. The beef (topside) was very tough to cut althought the flavour was OK. my wife could not cut her beef and had to leave most of it. The vegetables were well over cooked. My wife had a dessert, a banana and date pie. the centre was still almost frozen. service was good however., although maybe a shortage of staff.
Sadly we will not be returning.

My husband and I have just spent 2 very pleasant nights at The Mill House. The weather was dreadful, but we knew that before we left and Paul advised us by telephone of the conditions we would experience on arrival. We stayed in Room 1 with a large bathroom(but be careful of the steps going into it as you enter) All staff were very helpful and friendly and the food on both nights was excellent,Breakfasts were first class The only fault I would say "as a women" is the lack of power points and they are in the wrong place, I had to plug in the kettle over the side of the bed,as it would not reach where the tea/coffee facilities were, no where to sit with mirror over to blow dry and put makeup on. All it needs is a chair, vanity unit, mirror and 3 point plug in one place and I would have been happy, but apart from that thanks very much

Room Tip: Superior means a larger room The flat screen TV in room 1 could be a bit dodgy changing channels

We had a lovely 2 night weekend break during November. Being that it was out of season, there were not many other guests, making it quite a peaceful experience. The hotel staff is very attentive and customer focused. There is a nice cosy atmosphere in the bar, but the real jewel in the crown is the restaurant, which provided a great dining experience.

Room Tip: Room #3 has a shower (no a bath).

November 4th stay, small room likened to a cupboard, no bath but shower ok. Very noisy until bar closed at midnight then heating on until 3:30am making the room unbearably hot. Only ventilation was tiny window which was of no help.
Breakfast was excellent but lack of sleep was important. I would never stay again or recommend this hotel. At half the cost it would be too much. I would advise the Port William just down the road for a better position and far better value.

Room Tip: Ask to see room before committing yourself as I believe they do have better rooms (size) remember th...

alexandraCornwall, Owner at The Mill House Inn, responded to this review, November 10, 2011
We are very sorry this guest was unhappy with his standard room, although no comment was made at the time of his stay. Our standard rooms are all fairly small and only have showers and accordingly in the low season are priced at £75 per night for 2 guests inclusive of breakfast. Our superior rooms have baths and are much more spacious. The Mill House is an old building dating back to 1760 and hence we are very restricted as to what we can do. There are controls on all the bedroom radiators, so that guests may regulate their heating in their rooms as they wish. Our web site displays all our rooms and there is also mention that our bar license on Friday and Saturday extends until midnight.

We have recently been inspected by Visit Britain (including Room 2) and have retained our 4 star rating, as well as increasing our overall percentage score.
