4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, room comfort

Friendly place, good location for walking.

Nice place to stay as a friendly enrollment. We stayed once before and the overall standard of decor and cleanliness in the room has dropped a little since our initial stay. It is great for a relaxed short stay as the pub is good. Most of our food was ok but my wife had the eggs Benedict which was covered in what could only be described as vinegary paint. Apart from that good basic food . Excellent location for long walks as in a national park. Friendly staff means I would stay again but avoid the eggs Benedict!.

Eels Foot Inn -> RSPB Minsmere

I wanted to visit RSPB Minsmere and looked at all local hotels within a 5-10mile radius and decided upon the Eels Foot Inn. The Inn is located on the very edge of minsmere, it's easy to get to and from and the room was just perfect for the couple of nights I stayed there. Staying at the inn meant I could have a hearty breakfast before heading off to spend all day at minsmere and with just a quick hop back to the inn for dinner with a couple of wonderful Adams beers. I happened to be staying at the inn on Thursday night when a bunch of locals get together to play music, anyone can join in, and what a great night it was. I would also like to thank the landlord, Julian, who Wass most helpful and considerate. Would I stay there again? Absolutely, and soon. ]
