3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness
My partner and I stayed at this hotel so that we could walk to Highclere Castle for a tour booked months ago. The overall hotel is charming, the staff are lovely and the drinks were great. However the room we stayed in was quite dirty. It desperately needs a deep clean (spider webs in corners and on the ceiling, lots of sticky surfaces and lots of dust on the coffee pods and other edibles). The walls are very thin and you can hear the highway beside the hotel at night… while I’m a deep sleeper and this didn’t bother me, it could bother some future guests. The menu in the pub/restaurant is quite limited (if you’re craving fresh veggies and fruits), however everything we ordered was quite delicious. Overall it was a decent stay, the biggest issue I had was the cleanliness of our room.

Excellent stay
Brilliant and friendly service. Lovely room with a great selection of teas, alternative milks and even a small coffee machine. Good selection of (paid for) snacks available in room too. Booked in for our evening meal, beautiful food with great vegan options, as well as breakfast too. Really enjoyed our stay

Nice enough
Was nice enough just had a little problem with the room being cold and nowhere to put toiletries, packet milk (which I’m not a big fan of ) I found the menu what I would say is more for the elite taste ! And expensive.
