Glad I didn't read all the negative reviews before booking the Cow and Calf. We have stayed there before, so knew approximately what to expect and were not disappointed at all this time.
I think we are fairly discerning, and whilst the breakfast wasn't quite as good as before (no bacon and eggs), the fish and chips we ate in the bar were scrumptious and the portions huge.
Our room was clean, warm and comfortable. We had a skylight window this time round, so missed the view, but since we only used it for sleeping that was not a problem.
Location is excellent - right on the famous moors and within a short drive of the town centre.
I would thoroughly recommend the hotel - for this area the price is excellent, and we will definitely return.
