Property conditions & facilities



2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Looked lovely from outside. Old and traditional, well kept. Rang for reception 4 times before anyone came and were handed a key, told where our room was. Room VERY basic, cold and uninviting - such a disappointment after the outside! Pics show the entirety of wall adornments ! Kettle didn’t work properly either 🙄. Cheap, nasty tea and coffee. Couldn’t get WiFi and NO info on how to. Couldn’t access any staff to ask until evening and still didn’t work. Shower too really nice but tiny beds, small quilts, Ill fitting windows so that EVERY sound and the smokers smoke came in til early hours of the morning😢. Curtains Ill fitting so light shone in from night light too. Worse night in a hotel for a long time. No breakfast available at all. This is obviously just an easy money maker with no effort while they concentrate on the restaurant ( which was really nice ) Definitely DONT recommend, a shame as the owners seem nice .

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Clean pleasant room
Clean pleasant room with large walk-in shower. Located behind their Italian restaurant so having to go through the restaurant to get to/from the rooms in the coach-house at the back is a minor inconvenience. They are not providing a proper Breakfast service at the moment (due to Coronavirus) - only a bag which you need to collect from the restaurant. Both days the contents were the same - cheese/ham sandwich, banana, small orange juice and a yogurt - a bit disappointing.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It would be good to do something about the extractor fan in toilet. It goes on far too long once you left the toilet which meant a disturbed nights sleep as it’s very loud Breakfast more like a lunch pack. Would have been nicer to have something like a croissant and small pot jam than a warm sand which. Other than that had a lovely stay you have lovely friendly staff and room was nice thank you
