Looks lovely on the outside, but don't be fooled. Bedrooms horribly dated, very basic, and in need of lots of TLC. Rude man on hotel reception. Rooms look like something from the 70s. Not even a hook in the bathroom to hang your towel, and the switch on hairdryer had been sellotaped down (and the whole thing wasn't working anyway). Unpleasant sticky residue on bedside table and a used tissue down the back so obviously the room had not been properly cleaned. How disgusting. The staff are *not* willing to go to *any* extra trouble to help out with reasonable requests, and will just dismiss you with a shake of the head and no apology. Couldn't even try the food as there was no chef working there at present. Not surprised...! A total rip-off for the price we paid.

The owner rang us at 5 -30 to tell us that he wanted to shut he didn’t know what room was booked and that the kitchen closed at 5 . His excuse was that it was dead and it wasn’t worth opening . We managed to get in the Roebuck just up the road the staff food and bedroom were all excellent . The Chequers inn deserves to go bust which I suspect it will!!
