It was fine but don’t get ‘superb’
It was OK and fine for what we wanted which was a good stop over on the way to the airport early the following morning. The bathroom wasn’t particularly clean but the bed and rest of the room was. Ironing board had a flimsy bit of a cover which didn’t sit on it and it was almost impossible to iron anyway as the boards legs were so wonky so I needed my husband to stand on one of the legs so that I could iron. As we were up anyway at 5:00am, it wasn’t a problem but I’d have been very disappointed at the beer barrels being rolled over the stoney path at 5:15am and did make me feel that I wouldn’t want to return for a relaxing night away.

Lovely stay in a quaint village
We had a very comfortable stay. The room had a lovely big bed and we had a brilliant nights sleep. The bathroom isn’t huge but had a good shower. Chew Magna is a lovely little village. The deli shop across the road serves great pastries and coffee.
