A bit overpriced
At £95 for the night I felt this was a bit much for the room I had. Bar staff were nice, no WIFI in the bedroom. A bit quiet in the bar, owner was busy on lap top and no music, not very atmospheric. The village is beautiful though

Needs a makeover
The picture shown is not like the bedroom we had which was called Capability. It was quite dark even with the lights on, the ladies vanity stool needed repairing as did the siding on the bath. Overall it was tired and needed some management. The young serving staff at night and the lady in charge of the breakfast were very obliging and keen to give a very good service. Unfortunately the manager/owner was fully involved with a table of locals to provide any help or guidance to his staff or talk to his guests.

I'd go back
The Hambro Arms is an attractive building in an attractive village, due to the requirements of Covid 19 the tables in the bar have been mover or removed to comply with the restrictions but the rooms and restaurant are fine. the showers sometimes show the age of the building and the thickness of the walls makes wifi a bit hit and miss
