Rooms tastefully furnished, bathroom spacious & loved the raindrop shower. Nice to have such a large selection of towels too. Nice little touches throughout. Food was excellent in the evening & great breakfast. People do seem to let the main door to the bar slam & with it being an old place you can hear it but other than that would definitely stay again if in the area.

Very pleased to stay in an independently-run restaurant with rooms that also serves the local community well, rather than an anonymous chain. Welcoming and efficient staff, lovely food and very comfortable rooms with a lot of thoughtful touches. We'd be happy to stay again. Wish we could have got our bedroom windows to open and struggled with the TV until we found it had been switched off at the wall; also we could only get channels 1-99, but overall a really good experience.

Pro: new, nice design, cosy room. Food hamper upon arrival which is great. Con: the carpet is a bit too rough for bare feet. I was not communicated timely about the breakfast being skipped at first place - due to bank holiday weekend. However the manager decided to carry on operating breakfast service as usual so it was fine at the end.
