I couldn't work out how to phone from one room to another which was a little frustrating at the time. I resorted to communicating via mobile phone. The rooms were clean and comfortable and quiet. Our bathroom was enormous. The general decor and setting was very pleasant. I love the older buildings. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I didn't have breakfast there but other family members did and said it was very good. We only spent one night there but I would be happy to return. The car park had plenty of parking spaces.
I stayed three nights and loved it! The tap dripped in my bathroom, I nearly fell down a step due to poor lighting and yet... Biscuits and hot chocolate in the room, a good wine choice and excellent food - the lamb tagine with couscous was delightful. I stayed alone yet had some lively conversations with locals, guests and staff.

we booked one night here during our trip - relatively blindly. Went by reviews on Expedia. This little place was wonderful, and we will likely book here during our trip next year. This time for more than one night
The hotel/pub is situated in a small village easily within reach of the M4 but quiet nonetheless. Busy car park but we managed to find a space. Popular pub with very good food made with local produce. As a vegetarian, I find the choices limited usually but not so here. There was plenty of choice and the food was imaginative - not the usual sorry vegetable lasagne found in the bottom of the freezer!
The room was on the small side but clean and adequate. The bed was a little soft for my liking but comfortable. The remote-controlled shower was excellent.
A very pleasant stay and I would make a return visit.
Myself and my husband treat ourselves to a weekend away at least once twice a year and one of the places we always come back to after hours of web searching is this hotel , the staff are really friendly and polite the location is good and the food is delicious always fresh and hot and good quality , the rooms are clean and very large. I would say if I was being picky that the bar prices are on the high side but as it's a treat we don't mind paying them I was a little disappointed this time round that when I did go to the bar for a prosecco I was told they had none left ? but still the wine was nice they did have.
But overall as usual a great stay and would and have recommend this hotel .
