Having been very excited about a weekend away after a stressful month we were dissapointed when we arrived to see that the pub had little atmosphere what so ever however the greeting we got and service from the staff was excellent I have to say. What really lets the pub down is the rooms that they offer. On arrival I was dubious as they walked us upstairs to the room for us to see that all the ceilings and walls were wonky not a problem until you close your room door and and the gap underneath the door starts off as a centimetre and ends as two inches, we had to use the throw from the bed to cover the gap to stop the draft and light getting in and to stop people putting their hand under it, we had asked for a four poster and they had overbooked and put us in a (not so luxury) four poster room. The four poster bed was what could only be described as bunk beds with the top slats removed. The mattress was rock hard and during the night you got a lovely surprise when you rolled over and a lovely spring stuck in the side of you. my boyfriend was to big to sleep in it and had to sleep curled up all night.
On arrival inspection of the room I went to see what the bathroom was like, as you sat down on the toilet you noticed a door used to be infront of you and was just filled in so half the time you expected some one to walk in on you while you were in the bathroom. The hot tap was coming away from the sink and once you turned it on you could not turn it off plus the toilet would not flush properly. The central heating was absolutely boilng so had to try and keep the window open however you are only given a wooden block to do this as the windows are so old. The icing on the cake was the vase underneath the fireplace which was full of soot and fag packets - nice!
On the Friday night I had convinced myself that if I did not enjoy the day in Warwick tomorrow we would leave early as it was horrible, fortunately we did have a great day out in warwick and if one thing is to be said about this pub it is that if you want to make sure you see the whole town - stay here as nothing makes you want to go out more.
On the Satruday night we got in a bit earlier and decided to watch a bit of telly and had a great laugh when we realised that the bloke staying in the room next to us was watching the same programme as we could hear him laughing in time with us, we had an even bigger laugh the next morning while I was brushing my teeth and could hear a guy farting and going to the toilet next door.
So ridiculous that we left feeling like we had never laughed so much. I must add finally that breakfast was lovely and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful - the rooms and building judt need some TLC and you would have a brilliant hotel. Unfortunately at the moment I would not return or recommend however we did have a weekend that we will always laugh about and never forget.
