Warm welcome on arrival and my room was ready at the agreed time. The room itself (Number 9) was spacious, bed was very comfortable with quality bedding. The bathroom had a fairly large shower and it was easy enough to control both the temperature and the flow. The usual things were supplied, towels, shampoo, flip flops but interestingly no flannel which was a bit unusual. As I was only there one night, I didn't request one so don't know if it had been overlooked or isn't supplied.
Food is good quality and I particularly enjoyed the breakfast. I didn't meet many staff but those I did meet were very good.
It is an old Inn and I have read reviews that mention "tired" or "creaky floorboards". Well yes, the floorboards in the bedroom did creak but only when I walked on them! I didn't hear any creaking at any other time. If you want to look around and be critical I'm sure you can find areas to criticise or suggest need updating but if you stay in old places you don't expect shiny chrome, sleek lines and pristine walls.
If you are just looking for a very comfortable room, comfortable bed, free good speed WiFi, good food, plenty of parking and friendly welcome in a quaint old Inn, then I thoroughly recommend The White Horse.
