2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Got a deal on the internet to stay in an "apartment".

was shown in and literally cried my eyes out. 3 electric fan heaters were warming the place up ( no central heating). it was very damp. the carpets were filthy. the decor was hideous. Dog hair everywhere. artex walls. it stunk. I sat and cried as it was my birthday.
i spoke to the manager who moved us to the main building in a big room overlooking the front. so much better... but still not great. Bath had no shower so had to get a jug to wash my hair. i dropped something behind the bedside table so pulled it forward and could not believe my eyes of what filth was underneath!!!

they are refurbishing the place so i reckon it will be fab when complete however needed the income to do this (hence cheap groupon deals). this is dangerous strategy.

food was surprisingly great! so was sitting by the log fire on an evening. The managee and staff were helpful.

if you go ensure u book a refurbed room only. it will be a goldmine when complete. location is fab!

Thank you for your review and all has been taken into consideration, the apartments do have heaters in them as there is no central heating to them so to justify that we try to give every guest as comfortable warm room which the heaters do compensate for this terrible cold damp weather we have had, the apartments are getting refurbished but in the mean time we keep adding little bits to make them feel homely to fully refurbish you need to take in consideration the closure of them and the money which it takes to do these things, a lot of our customers enjoy the apartments as they are there for walking groups because they sleep between 4-5 people in each one, they used to be bunk houses so it is a great improvement on 15years ago when people were happy to sleep in bunk houses. We do accept dogs in the apartments but make sure that every one is clean thoroughly before the next guest arrives, I'm glad you like the four poster room in the main building that you was moved to some of the rooms do only have baths in them but the new bathrooms have both we are improving the county inn more and more each day. Again I'm sorry you felt this way

Great roadside pub on the snake pass, set in beautiful contryside. The Carling Extra Cold Lager was really Top Notch, served with just the right amount of head and fizz. Well worth a visit especially if out walking.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you!! I recently organised a murder mystery evening, where better than a Inn in the middle of Snakes Pass.

Sophie was so helpful nothing was to much trouble! On arrival rooms were moved around so everyone in our party was on the same floor and within the main building.

The food was exceptional, service was second to none. The girls that work here are so much fun and really do everything they can to make your stay memorable. Particually Nic, who is a star and is such an asset to the place - Thanks Nic your a Legend!!!

The room we were in would be perfect for a small party or large family get together. The Inn itself would be a great place to go for a night away, especially room 4 or room 6 for a romantic get away!!

Thanks again!!!

Room Tip: Room 6 was easily the best room out of the 5 rooms our group had.

Very glad me and husband found this place and very happy they are dog friendly in the apartments, Laura the ladies that was working made it feel like home she was chatty and helpful, we travel around a lot and it's very rare that you go to stay somewhere and the staff even talk to you now. The food was brill warm plates which I love and the room was nicely decorated and cosy. We have booked again for January . Just like to say thank you to all the girls for making our stay fab, and mike wants to say your cask ales are gorgeous :)

Really enjoyable stay at the snake pass inn the girls made us fell very welcome, they even lit the fire for us! It's a little gem with great walks surrounding the place. Room was clean and tidy new bathroom and we got a cheap rate including breakfast so very good value for money food was lovely real home cooked lasagne and chilli. Couldn't ask for a nicer friendlier stay.

We stayed for 2 nights on 23rd and 24th November and had a fantastic stay. Nic, Gemma, Charlotte, Sophie and Mandy couldnt have made us more welcome. The hotel which is 200 years old was cosy in the Public areas, the bedrooms were lovely and clean and the breakfast was first rate.
I would wholeheartedly recommend people to stay here, we will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms 7 & 8 are lovely . If you would like an appartment style room , room 11 is good too, but y...

I had planned a surprise party for my husband ( he thought that just the two of us were away for the weekend). The staff smuggled in the guests and really made the party a fun event. Even breakfast the following morning was a continuation of the party, nothing was too much trouble.
Great food, lovely rooms.
Fantastic!
Thanks
