We bought WOWcher for £89 for 2 nights. We knew that we would be staying in a pub with accommodation and we didnt expect the place to be perfect, but, guys....
Times are tough for this kind of businesses and we all struggle, however:
*rooms were quite clean and the appliances looked okay. It would be fine if the tv wasn't just a decoration, same as the shower. We did report that shower wasn't working on the day of arrival, however nothing was done to fix it.
*food was very fatty (fish and chips) and mash tasted like a pre made.
*coffee and tea in the room was a nice touch. However, when we ran out of milk in our room we had to go and get it ourselves from the kitchen.
* staff was v nice, however they should be more informative about the area.

Stayed here from friday to monday in a family room (Room 1) with our two children. It said family room but it was actually two big rooms. The rooms were very clean, beddings and bathroom very clean as well. We even had a fridge. The food in the pab was very nice and at a very fair price. English Breakfast each morning, delicious thanks to Mark, the exclellent chef. The staff are great, excellent customer service and very friendly. Would definately reccommend to anyone. Next time we go to cornwall again we will definately stay here and in the same room.

Room Tip: Room 1, family room, very large and sunny

we had a wowcher 2 night stay with breakfast and Evening meal ,the food was excellent and plenty of it. Room was spotlessly clean maybe a little noisy but that could'nt be helped owing to the location central to busy street, did'nt put us off too much as would definatly go back.

Room Tip: maybe a room at the rear would be quieter

Excellent Room/bedding/linen/clean/bathrrom/ tea and other supplies all excellent (shower excellent but needs better securing
arrangements this was ROOM 6) My advice never have a room overlooking the
High Street NOISEY not only from traffic but hear the thump thump of the music in the
bar besides movement from above.and smokers outside the street entrance talking..
The Cheff excellent and all food we had was enjoyed and at a very fair price. Breakfast
had two, all excellent and hot.The Downside was noise (have a room at the rear and should
be fine) The other downside was WC paper we went out on purchased our own Mr J Allen MBE.

Room Tip: Never have a room that faces onto the High Street if you want QUITE

Mr Allen, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. I have spoken to our maintenance team regarding to the shower heads and these are now being replaced, so thank you for pointing this out to us. I am very sorry for the noise from downstairs in the pub that you could hear, this is a slight issue as like you say, being at the front of the premises there is the problem of traffic etc. However, if you would like to stay with us again please do not hesitate to ask for a room towards the rear of the building and this can be arranged for you.
Once again, thank you for your review and feedback and we hope to see you again soon.

On arrival we were shown our room which at first looked ok for the basic price we paid,after returning from our evening out the first thing we noticed was the dreadful noise from the dj downstairs which was just as loud upstairs in our room,we were also surprised to discover that our double bed had disapeared and a single had replaced it with a note from the management saying they needed it for someone else hmm great my single bed was very uncomfortable with two very old lumpy pillows,we finally managed to sleep through sheer exhaustion,in the morning when attempting to use the shower we found that if you lifted it above the plughole it went cold it also leaked all over the floor,oh yeah dont expect any cleaning we didnt get any in 3 days,lastly the tv didnt work,i wouldnt suggest that anyone stays here its horrendous.

Room Tip: Dont bother

In the course of my work I stay in hotels about seven days a month.
This hotel is one of the worst I've stayed in.The rooms are poor,there was no food available and
worse than that it wan't till late at night I was informed there was no breakfast.
The place is very cheap and this is reflected in the very low quality and poor service.
You have been warned.
