This is a budget-ish hotel. We had a room at the front with an ensuite (extra £20) and boy! The road outside is busy and noisy! The pub itself was ok and the guys behind the bar were charming and friendly. My husband said the Harveys was good and the pinot was enjoyable too. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the linen super soft and fine for 1 night. Breakfast was.....not served til 10am!!! I had to nip over to the local Co-op and buy a danish at 7:30 to keep us going! I also had an 'incident' at breakfast when I sat on the restaurant chair and the whole thing collapsed in 3 places. The deputy manager helped my husband pull me up (it was in a tight spot) and instead of apologising just said, 'Are you alright?' Breakfast is, in the main, ok. It does the job but with little to inspire. Reasonable ingredients, cooked not especially well and presented almost grudgingly - on the plate and by the server. For one night only, and in the event of nowhere else being available, this is (at best) an ok place but not one I would recommend. It is what it is
