“Dissapointing”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

I was impressed by the building and garden and I was greeted warmly. I had booked a single room but in fact it turned out to be a 'box room'. It was so small that the bed was positioned diagonally! The toilet and washbasin were on one side of the room and the shower was on the other side-it was obviously a converted cupboard. There was mould around the shower tray and the toilet and sink were old and needed replacing. The sheets were worn and had been repaired in several places and the pillows were totally unacceptable. In fact one was yellow with stains. Needless to say, I left immediately.

After reading the fantastic reviews we were slightly disappointed but not unhappy.
Pro's;
The 21.00 check-in is great as we used the hotel for a quick overnight stop.
Off road parking
Easy to find
Lovely building
Nice breakfast
Free fruit and water
Con's;
Bedroom No 1 had a 4 poster bed which is not very comfortable and makes a noise every time you move, hence, I got little rest.
The extractor fan in the bathroom is big enough and loud enough for a room 50 times the size but still doesn't clear the steam!
The bin hadn't been emptied and still contained the previous guests rubbish.
I am not going to give this place less than an average 3 stars as I think it would be unfair as it clearly just needs a cash injection to improve the decor and some furniture. I do apprecaite the effort being made to make it "in keeping" but for us it wasn't quite there.

What an amazing hotel this is. An absolute must if you are in the area. The hotel has been restored in such a loving way and the decor and standard of the building is superb. The bedroom we stayed in was so comfy and to such a high standard with wonderful en-suite facilties and a breakfast which would fill any hungry person. There were many extras, such as a hot drink served to us as soon as we came back after an evening out and comfy well stocked lounges in addition to our bedroom facilities, and such friendly staff without exception. We hope to go back again when we are in the area and absolutely recommend this as such good value. The facilities were far more than we expected and the hotel was in a quiet residential area with good parking. What more could you ask for.

Good sized room and all the staff we met were very friendly and welcoming. Large old house which has interesting décor in keeping with the house. Good size bathroom with both shower and bath. Everything clean and tidy.

We recommend this hotel highly, having stayed here on two or three occasions now, Jana is a wonderful host and the rooms are very clean and beds are comfortable. Nice touch with free bottled water and fresh fruit in dining room anytime you want. The full english breakfast is fantastic too, everything from Fresh Fruit and cereal, yogurt to grilled sausage,bacon, eggs cooked any way you like toast and a lovely pot of tea or coffee freshly brewed.

Room Tip: Make sure you book far enough in advance so as to avoid disappointment. This hotel gets booked up pr...

We only stayed for one night on way from Edinburgh to London. As our car broke down we arrived very late but the host was still very friendly and understanding (we did keep her posted on our estimated time of arrival which she very much appreciated). The rooms were spacious and clean. The beds very comfortable. Good value/price! There is just not so much to do in the area.
Kids had a great time playing n the garden though.

This is one of the best places I have stayed with everything classy and full of features. It is an Edwardian building with huge rooms, four poster bed, excellent decor, spotless clean, excellent breakfast, ample parking, nice garden, very polite & helpful staff and all amenities for a comfortable stay. There is a computer with Internet free to use and plenty of place to unwind or work. Extremely good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for room 1
