“DID THE JOB”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

My husband and I are walking the South West Coast Path and often do 10 -12 miles in a day. We always like to have a comfortable bed and most essentially a bath, which we find prevents stiffness. We found both of these at the Rosslyn Hotel. In recent years, many B+B s and small hotels have taken out bathrooms and put in en suites with no baths and less than adequate showers in an attempt to save water, but this is no good for walkers like us, now in our mid-fifties. So we were relieved to find somewhere with a bath, albeit a tight squeeze, as the proprietor pointed out to us on our arrival. The shower was OK but required tenacity and patience on the part of the user, to achieve a fairly consistent temperature. The bed had a firm mattress and was adequate. The walls were a bit thin, so we could hear our next door neighbours cough. The mattress was firm and comfortable and there were independent wall lights. Tea and coffee sachets were provided, though no hot chocolate sachets or any small biscuits. The view from our room on the front was panoramic and the window opened easily for adequate ventilation. A glance upwards to a water stain, which skirted an electric socket, made us grateful that we were not the owners of the property. The weather was not that hot, so we figured it would be OK, which it was. Access to the bathroom was via a sliding door which departed from its runners the first time I used it and I was concerned that anyone could get trapped behind it, which would have been dangerous in the case of a fire. So I insisted that my husband stayed in the room while I was using the bathroom. The furniture in the room was all new clean pine, with adequate hanging space and full length mirror. Everything was clean and very compact and the most had been made of the space. It was fine for our short stay of 3 nights. The dining room was spacious allowing privacy between tables and again the view from the large front window was interesting. The décor and upholstery were a bit tired. There was a choice of breakfast, which was well cooked and presented. The menu was a little misleading though, as it referred to a wide choice of fruit, which we did not find, and yogurt was not an option unless one opted for the continental breakfast. There was good table service, though the toast was cold by the time we came to eat it, but this is usually the case, unless it is self service. There was convenient parking at the hotel and the location was good for the town centre and only a ten-minute walk into town, though uphill on the way back, so we parked our car halfway down the hill on the second and third evenings. This was a no frills hotel, but did not lack any of the essentials and was good value for money.

Room Tip: We had Room 14.

We stayed here with six friends stayed here for two nights. Our room was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. The hosts were friendly and accommodating.

Good find for a short weekend away

Booked as a group booking so if you had 23 booked you would not wait til the day of arrival to get extra staff. Thus hotel owner and wife ran bar, cooked and served meals on Friday night. Hence very poor service, badly cooked meals, cold food, lack of condiments/sauces. Total kybosh and when we dared to complain we were met with angry retorts and threats of damage to our bikes. Utterly outrageous. This is such stupid business as then we did not eat or drink in the hotel in the evening after this.
The hotel is very tired and the photo on here is definitely photoshopped. Rooms were fair and clean but showers were either scolding or cold. Breakfast was fair to middling and there were staff hired for this at least. While the grupenfuher looked on with a sense of making sure we didnt complain about anything or steal the cutlery.
There are far too many good hotels here to compete and your standards need to be high.

Room Tip: Dont go there, but if you do room 4 was the biggest but watch the shower

We had a very comfortable one night stay and found it to be welcoming and clean. We thought the evening meal was cooked to perfection - we both had steak and the breakfast was also superb. The location was ideal for us as it's probably a 10 minute walk from the town and our room overlooked the garden at the back so a lovely quiet night. Would definitely return.

This hotel is an old-fashioned family hotel, in need of some upgrading but the proprietors are friendly and the food is good. It reminded me of places I stayed in as a child. Things have moved on a bit since then, so I can see why some reviewers were unhappy with the décor, but if you don't mind that it is OK to stay in - it's clean and the food in the dining room is good home-cooked fare (with local beers available). We booked rather at the last minute as we needed a family room somewhere in the area for an event on a Saturday, and stayed two nights (Friday and Saturday), eating in on the first night. There is a nice view from the big bay window in the dining room. Quiet at night.

Reading the reviews, I didn't know what to expect, but I was very happy with the hotel, service and rooms, not to mention breakfast and our main meals... Brilliant food, really was, it's made the week away from home working here much better and will make sure I book this one again:)
