Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was very short-staffed and it showed. The manager/owner was very friendly but run off his feet as he had to do everything. The room was unclean, no hot water in the room and as it was a weekend no plumber was available, and poor choice of cereals at breakfast.

I understand it’s been an hard year for all, but it’s no excuse for not doing some well needed updating. The room was so outdated, dusty and cobwebs everywhere , Stains on the sheets and the constant smell of damp. I was disappointed because it was an overnight surprise for the girlfriend, close to the road but I knew this when I booked up, who was in charge, the grey haired lady from behind the bar or the chef, the food was ok. The West Country inn is tired inside and out, with so much potential the place could be fabulous, shame.
