2/5 Poor

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness
It was disappointing that check-in wasn’t any earlier than at 18:00 because it meant we had to hang around in cold weather until then. The bedroom wasn’t very warm and there was no heating in the en-suite bathroom.

Great spot and good value
Great value for money. It's an old pub (in an ideal rural setting) so it's far from state of the art. But for my stay with friends it was absolutely fine. Decent pub food, a few pints, a good nights sleep followed by a good standard breakfast. We will probably stay again.
