Stayed again at The Stukeleys Country Hotel for 2 nights while attending a dog show. I have to say it did the job - we were just looking for a cheap place to stay for a few nights that accepted dogs, and it fitted the bill nicely.
The room was a family room, with a double bed and a single - beds were very old and not all that comfortable, but ok. The room itself was clean enough, as was the bathroom, although it was very dated looking. Plus point - the shower was excellent, very powerful and plenty of hot water. We had a meal on our first night - Sirloin Steak for my partner, and I opted for the Mixed Grill. Both were excellent - my partners steak was cooked medium rare as ordered, very tender and tasty. My mixed grill was very good - steak, lamb chop, sausage, gammon steak, egg, mushrooms, tomato, and chips. Breakfast both days was excellent - well cooked and tasty. yes the service was a bit slow but it was the one guy taking orders and doing the cooking. I have to say the service was very good - they are a bit understaffed, and it seems to be just a few people doing all jobs, but everyone we spoke to was very pleasant and helpful (even opening the restaurant early for us one morning as we had to be away sharpish). Yes it is a bit dated and shabby, but the staff are good, food is good, and lets face it you get what you pay for - in my opinion this is a good value hotel.
