We first stayed here when there were floods on the M6 in December, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel was warm and welcoming, quaint, with lovely staff and good food. I went back myself recently for a single night and was very disappointed. I paid for an upgrade room with a 4 poster bed, and struggled to get my small suitcase into the room. The room seemed smaller than the basic room we had last year, there was 2 bedside tables, a chest of drawers, an ottoman, a dressing table and a huge wardrobe with more drawers. The bathroom was very grubby with hairs and a dead fly in the sink, and the 2 teacups supplied for a morning cup of tea were both dirty with hardened rings of someone else's tea.
The bar and restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful, although I was disappointed with my dinner as the rib eye steak I ordered was definitely not "medium", it was grey and hard, and the chunky chips were burned. Breakfast was what you might expect, but nothing special.
I heard people say how nice the pool was, but I didn't see it myself
