Reviewed July 18, 2011

I like to think I'm quite fair and honest with my reviews. So here goes:
On entry to the pub, the reception was closed. No big deal as someone from the bar opened it up as soon as I say I was coming to stay.
I have no offer to carry my bags by the 3 staff talking in the bar.
The room was down what another reviewer classed as an alley way, and I would imagine that this is how it appears in the night, especially when no one walks you to the room, the room doors are outside, to the back of the hotel near the car park.
The room was beautifully decorated, the bathroom was clean the room was clean. I had a kettle, 3 tea bags, 1 hot chocolate sachet, 1 coffee sachet, 3 milk cartons (I would have liked more), and 1 open pack of biscuits with one missing and one stale one left over. It didn't look as though it had been replenished. But the nice room, and nice flat screen tv made up for it.
There were towels in the room and a hairdryer. As the room is very compact there is no chair to sit at the dressing table, you simply sit at the end of the bed. No big deal. I wasn't here for a party.
The evening was noisey. One car beeping it's horn at 1030, one couple arguing at around 1130 and more noise, but fell back to sleep after shoving tissue in my ears. I woke in the morning to notice 'Complimentary earplugs'. I'll post a photo for you to see it to believe it. They obviously have problems with noise here. Even the local business I attended was shocked I was staying here. To be honest, if you can sleep with earplugs in or are a heavy sleeper, this is a great little room to stay in.
The breakfast wasn't amazing, and I was a bit dissappointed with the deep fried mushrooms and the deep fried sausage. The eggs were great. They were all too hot to eat, however, the toast was stone cold, the butter didn't even melt. Hope that helps you decide...

Stayed here for one night in one of the rooms on the back annexe which was adequate for the money paid but overlooks car park and smokers standing outside for a cigarette. The staff were ok although a little on the unfriendly side but our worst grip was the food, it is very reasonably priced but it should be edible which it was not. I had beef strogonoff from the specials board and it looked very unappetising, grey meat that looked as though it had been boiled (more than once), was not able to eat it and when mentioned this to the waitress as she cleared our plates she simply asked us if we would like her to fetch the manager which we declined.

booked in for 1 night, unfortunately hot water boiler had packed in, but was offered the facility of a hot shower in another room, stayed in room over the front of the building, overlooking the road, earplugs not needed, good nights sleep, absolutely cracking breakfast with very pleasant service, paid bill on leaving only to find they had reduced the bill because of the hot water situation, without a shadow of a doubt will definately stay here again, only sorry that we didnt eat here in the evening, because the selection on the blackboard looked very tempting, went out to meet friends and ate at a restaurant called alice lyles, absolute crap

Nice room in the annexe at the back of the pub. NIcely furnished and very clean. Smallish but functional. Good breakfast.
Camp bed provided for additional child, but wasn't made up when we arrived. So we had to chase that.
Otherwise, pleasant stay and value for money

We stayed at this hotel on a four for three nights offer, which was good value for money, the breakfast was good, and the one evening meal we ate there was very good value for money. Our room wasn't cleaned, only the bed was made each day. Bathroom not cleaned and towels never changed. Most of the staff seemed to find it hard to smile, apart from the very hard working waitress, who seemed to clean public areas in between serving breakfast, she was lovely. All in all it was good value for money.
