Disliked: Cleanliness
Nice staff - below standard for the price
The bar staff ere very helpful and friendly but the pub was not a great environment for a single woman The bed was nice but the room futments very basic or broken and not cleaned to a good standard . There was nobody there in the morning to check out and no breakfast available . Quite noisy . Could easily be improved with some TLC but very over priced for what is essentially an outbuilding
