“WARM WELCOME”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

I had a very enjoyable time, made to feel like part of the family. The room was lovely and so warm with tv and tea and coffee plus a basket of goodies. The new owners have only been there a month, i will be going back.

Reviewed February 6, 2010

Unfortunately we has a very poor experience when a group of us stayed there recently. The breakfast was good but the rest was totally unacceptable. In spite of requests, the heating was not turned on, or certainly left on long enough, which resulted in all the rooms being so cold and damp that it brought one lady to tears and one couple to decide to drive home rather than suffer. When this was raised with the landlord, who was grumpy and unhospitable from the outset, he simply argued that the heating was on (when it wasn't) and that we would not bother coming back again - as if we needed any further encouragement not to come again! Their website says that they are an AA 4 star rated hotel however I understand that when one of our party asked the AA their response was that not only were they not 4 star rated, they were not rated at all! I only wish we had the same experience as some of the other reviewers. I suggest you try the local B&Bs first.‎

Hello,

We normally do not respond to Tripadvisor reviews however on this occasion we have made an exception.

We are sorry to hear that your stay was not satisfactory. However as you can read by all reviews 2013 onwards we have changed ownership and management.
Under new ownership and management we would never allow the conditions of your stay to happen as you can see from our other 20 reviews.

We have written to Tripadvisor to ask that this review be removed as we are under new ownership but as we did not do this at the time (when we took over The Fitzhead in 2013) that if we were to do so now we would loose all of our glowing reviews.

We do ask that if you could please remove your comment that would be help us greatly in what we are trying to achieve here at The Fitzhead. We would also love it if you would come and give our new ownership, management and warming countryside atmosphere a try. Please do give us a call!

Many Thanks
The Fitzhead Team
