We stayed for 3 nights in November 2012. It was a three nights for the price of two deal and was very good value. We enjoyed our stay. Some of the previous comments that it was bad were, in our view, an overreaction and seem to be made by persons who have made very few reviews. Comments made by Senior Reviewers/Senior Contributors seem to give a much more balanced view.
We were given Room 1 which was a superior en suite room with a king size bed. The room was a good size and large enough to accommodate a small sitting area with two armchairs in front of a tv. The windows were not double glazed and we could hear traffic pass by occasionally from about 7.30 am onwards but many people start getting up in a morning at this time anyway.
The staff were friendly. At breakfast the scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon were very good but the mushrooms and tomato needed to be cooked in less oil.
We had evening meals in the restaurant and there was a good choice. At this time of the year the menu included fresh pheasant and grouse and these were cooked just right. We also tried the supreme chicken and the rack of lamb and the quality, again, was excellent. A main course was between £10-£15 (we noted that the Kings Arms opposite charged more) and the price for a bottle of sauvignon blanc was very reasonable.
To some, the landlady may have a stern look but when talking to her she was pleasant and helpful. She mentioned the views from the hotel and we were allowed to freely go into several unoccupied rooms to see these. The rooms we saw were probably superior rooms but were very spacious and had views towards the countryside.
The hotel web site does not mention that it has a car park. It does have a car park for about 12 cars at the rear of the hotel and this is reached by a narrow winding accessway at the side of the hotel.
We talked briefly to a Dutch gentleman and he stays about three times a year at The White Rose. I think that tells its own story. We are quite happy to return.
