“Very welcoming”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Poachers Den is a family run B&B. The host was very friendly. Facilities were good. Stayed just one night, but will certainly use again. Great value for money.

Nice homely accommodation, close to centre town. Well equipped. Beds a bit basic - could do with a bit of an upgrade. Very friendly owner and dog. Good breakfast and good value for money

We were staying for just one night. When we arrived in the car park the large dog followed the car and waited for the driver to get out. Once we got out we followed him in. This was the best welcoming ive ever recieved. Although he may seem aggressive at first, be assured that he is one amazingly warm, friendly and lovable dogs.

The room was well equipped and not oversold. Almost every hotel i've stayed in has been oversold. The room came with en suite and a flatscreen TV with freeview channels. This was the first time ever i had had a flatscreen TV.

Stayed in Ecklinville House at Poachers Den for two nights whilst on business in July and will return. Excellent Full English breakfast...wow...I got though it , but only just!! I had a twin en-suite room and it was exceptionally clean and well decorated and fitted out and I felt right at home! really good value for a four star rated accommodation. Rob and Audrey were so friendly and helpful. Tea or coffee could be made in their kitchen at any time and there was an fantastic guest lounge with a 42" TV...also internet connection, which was very helpful.

We spent 5 days at Poachers Den Cottage and would highly recommend it. We found the key in the door as pre-arranged and loved the feel and atmosphere of the cottage. Everything was so clean and tidy and very nicely furnished and painted whilst still maintaining the "cottage" feel. Rob introduced himself early evening and was so welcoming and friendly. Zues the dog was so lovely and always greeted us and saw us to and from the car...so sweet!! The gardens and grounds were really nice to walk around and so well tended. we would recommend this accommodation very highly. Nice to have a separate shower and bath in each of the rooms.

Room Tip: lovely four poster bed in the double room

revgodo, Owner at Poachers Den, responded to this review, December 13, 2013
Disappointed with this review as arrangements were made with this guest to use a room our Poachers Den Cottage for one nights B&B and it was agreed that she was happy to see herself into the room in our absence. There is automatic lighting which was operating. The cottage has a four star rating provided by Visit England. The rose bush was in full bloom and wonderful but was cut back. When asked if they enjoyed their breakfast they said that they had...they ate everything provided. We are renowned for the quality and quantity of our Full English breakfasts and also any variations thereof and also cater for vegetarians. The curtains have been subsequently removed and washed to ensure that there could be no other such complaints. The bedding is used but not shabby. We have had very good reviews since these negative comments.

We absolutely loved our stay, made to feel extremely welcome. Very modern furnishing and decor with fantastic en suite facilities. Would highly recommend either the cottage or the main house.
