Reviewed February 13, 2013

We recently stayed here from the 4th to the 8th Feb. and as is usual with this this chain of "old english inns" have nothing but praise for the way they organise their business. We had a lovely warm room to sleep in and the whole thing was a welcoming experience from reception through to service in the restaurant. We ate every evening in the restaurant, where the food was excellent and the choice varied, and the breakfasts set us both up for the day. I have no problem at all with recommending this venue which proved particularly splendid value as we took advantage of one of their very special offers. Get on the companies website and sign up and you'll see what I mean !!!

I recently stayed at this hotel for a 2 night break.....thankfully I used a promotion and only paid £49 for 2 nights, 2 people B & B. At that price it was fantastic value. I think the receptionist was called Brenda....she was welcoming and friendly. We ate in the restaurant on the first night and had the 2 Sunday lunches for £10...not very impressed and was easy to see why the offer was there! Breakfast however was delicious....the guy was friendly and service was quick. The buffet table was well stocked with enough choice for anyone and the cooked breakfast was lovely. Overall the place could do with a lick of paint to brighten it up and the damp on the bathroom ceiling was a bit off putting. However....for what we paid it was ideal....i would have been disappointed if we had paid full price.

My husband and I stayed a couple of night is January and were made to feel very welcome by the reception staff and by the restaraunt staff. The breakfast was excellent and well presented. The evening meal was served in the pub, where we had a good value meal which was served quickly and efficiently. and a there was a lovely atmosphere.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are by the car park so try and and get one on the back.

The ambience and homeliness of the pub is a nice place to relax with a drink and chat. The only fault is the food/service side of the business. Not enough bar staff to cater for the customers at peak times (i.e. after 5pm) and the food is ok but long wait from ordering and not very hot when served to the table.

We stayed for two nights over a weekend. The room was a honeymoon suite, with four poster bed ( first time in one of those!), although we just booked an ordinary room, so that was a good start. The room was clean, a bit dark though. Very little natural light got in and the lamps, lights were a bit dim. More than adequate tea, coffee, UHT, biscuits available, clean bright bathroom, television, room service and breakfast menu. The staff were really pleasant too. We had dinner there both nights and even with a bottle of vino, not too expensive and good portions. Overall, we'd both stay in Olde English Inn again, and stay here again

Just stayed for 2 nights in the Lion suite which was very nice and comfy. Was made to feel very welcome by all the staff who always made the effort to speak to you. Only downside is the food. First night my partner was served a rice dish that was still part frozen this was rectified and 2 new meals bought out to us but was not offered anything as an apology. The first mornings breakfast was really nice good selection at the breakfast bar and good cooked breakfast. That evening we decided to give the meals a second chance and after finding around half the menu was sold out finally got a plate of food only this time everything was overcooked. The second mornings breakfast had no mushrooms, 1 mini sausage a raw tomato, 1 egg not 2 like the previous morning and 2 shrivelled pieces of bacon. Oh and no fresh fruit for my partner to have with her yogurt. Would definately stay again but would take a trip out for my food next time.

Stayed for 2 nights late January, the room was large with a kingsize comfy bed & good sized ensuite, very clean & warm. Would have to admit the first nights meal was a little dissapointing,( chips that had been cooked more than once & onion rings swimming in grease) this was probably down to the fact the place was absolutely packed, we were offered a sweet or drink for our dissapointment. Glad we gave it another chance because the food the following night was excellent (less busy).
Must agree with other reviews and say that all the staff were very friendly, helpful & seemed to enjoy helping the guests. We left hoping to return in the near future.
Would like to add that the Oldenglishinns offers are excellent value & well worth trying.
