Reviewed May 29, 2013

Stayed here for one night. The weather was evil but our room was lovely and warm. The bedroom was a good size and very comfortable. Check in staff very nice and very helpful. Breakfast was very good but hot water for coffee was not hot and difficult to get out of the pump flask. Over all a pleasant stay.
Good location in the middle of the Buckingham which is surrounded by lovely countryside.

Room Tip: 2nd floor has a narrow staircase up to it. Older or very unfit people should request first floor.

we went into this beautiful building which is the local pub disco on a Saturday night - we had been for a wonderful meal at Prezzo in town and wanted to finish off the evening with a drink. Filth is all I can say, it was disgusting. There was green slime mould dripping down the front wall outside from the gutter to the left of the street door, the carpets were totally worn out, and we had no choice but to sit on a sofa that was almost walking! There were pipes looking like garden hoses taped across the floor connecting the radiatiors?? there were what would once have been beautiful ornate chandaliers but the bulbs had blown and not been replaced or cleaned, the table we sat at had never been wiped over, and having had the guts to lift the dirty cusion on the sofa I was horrified at the mess and left. I took a couple of photos if needed. There was a pane of glass smashed in the bar outside window to the street that had been sellotaped up and then cling film added. For such a lovely village and lovely building I can not understand how this place has passed any fire and satefy and health certificates to allow guest to stay. Do not pay to stay here, the place is a pub with a disco and that is where they put their efforts certainly not in the hotel side. Our partners had been drinking in the evening (not in there) and even in their non sober state they were disgusted. Whilst I never stayed the night (thank god) I have put my ticks on the ratings from what I saw.

Room Tip: avoid at all costs.

This is a large pub with rooms above. It is in an excellent position right in the centre of Buckingham. Our room was large and clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good with a variety of cereals, juices, cooked options available. The whole place could do with a makeover but for the price it is good value for a night away.

The manager was really helpful and nice. The room was dirty, there was no toilet roll, milk for a coffee or a spoon; however they were quick once I asked.
The room was really cold and it took a long time to work out the heater, reception told me it takes about 20 mins to warm up! Suggest some instructions or pre warming.
The kettle was just dirty to look at, I couldn't sit on the chair because of crumbs and the carpet hasn't been hoovered.
Location was brilliant.
The hotel was nice it just needs a deep clean. If it wasn't for the manager being so nice I wouldn't have accepted it.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, clean warm room with wi-fi, tv and great decor. Plenty of hot water, towels were so white and soft. Comfy beds and delicious breakfast. EXCELLANT value. Loved the view from our window....out the front of the hotel....can see all going on. We have the choice to stay with relations but we love staying at the hotel. Air conditioning is the best, just ask how to use it if you don't know.

Room Tip: room 18, overlooks the front of the hotel.....quiet and so relaxing.

Don't stay here it is not a hotel just a disgusting pub. Room ok but a twin instead of the double booked, cold and right at the top of the building up 2 flights of very dirty stairs yuck

Breakfast served in a small room was not even worth mentioning. Wouldn't eat there as saw the chef and a glimpse into the kitchen only word for both dirty.

Room Tip: Don't bother choose a different hotel

Average pub hotel for the price. Staff very helpful was not left waiting to long to book in.
Rooms good only downfall was the bathroom rust on the shower and bath. The windows double glazed unit had covered over dirty rotting windows. Breakfast good but more detail to food hygiene and presentation in the breakfast area should be addressed.
