The pub is recently renovated, the staff friendly and the food there fantastic, however the accommodation is not to the same standard. The rooms are dated, the paintwork is scratched and fixtures are tired. The bathroom floor between the tiles was stained with what looked like blood by the toilet and on the shower curtain. There were hairs on the bathroom floor when we arrived. The cold water tap only came on at a tiny trickle and the hot water was too hot, meaning we could not wash our hands in the bathroom. The bed has no matress protector and we were both scratched by the buttons on the matress, plus disgusted that there was only a thin sheet to change between guests. The TV did not work and when I told the staff member he said he would try and look at it but there was no dedicated staff for the lodge. It was not fixed during our stay. We also tried to get the wifi to work for 20 minutes before going to ask, only to be told it was not working and that it was O2's problem (no apology), although it was working in the pub area. A note in the room to this effect to stop us wasting our time in the first place would have been better. We were not informed of the different breakfast time on weekdays (earlier than weekends) so missed the breakfast buffet, were made to feel it was our fault and had to pay for bacon sandwiches! The cleaner was cleaning near us then as we ate, despite the pub advertising a breakfast menu to the public between 8 and 12. The pub is great and I have spent a lot of money in there over the years. I was devastated to bring my boyfriend there for what was supposed to be a treat, only to find out how rubbish the rooms were. The fact they are not well-kept or staffed made us feel that the company are greedy, taking our money for little return. Luckily it was a special offer when we booked, because we would have felt really ripped off had we paid full price. It is ok for a cheap nights accommodation if you have to be in that area, but don't expect much.
