4/5 Good

Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The bedroom and bathroom were both large and very clean. There was no room service for the entire four day stay. In other words, litter bins not emptied, towels only changed after requesting, tea cups not washed, beds not made-up. No wardrobe or drawers. In fact room not visited for the stay. Room was also cold. The central heating had been playing up and the radiator in the bedroom only slightly warm. Radiator in bathroom very hot. Food excellent.

The Bluebell Inn is a proper traditional old style pub with lots of character and fun signage throughout. We have had a very pleasant stay with a delicious hot breakfast. We would come again and would definitely recommend.

One of the Best
Recently stayed for a family event, pub in a village, what do you expect? Certainly not this. This hotel is little gem. Beautifully designed, furnished and maintained comfortable room with large TV, wi-fi and a wonderfully powerful shower in a well sized cubicle, not a shoebox you can't turn round in. Add to this the well stocked bar in the pub, helpful, friendly staff and the great food in the restaurant makes this a wonderful place.
