5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Beautiful rural inn
I had a fantastic stay at The Rock and would visit again. The food was very good and I'd recommend eating at the hotel every night for short visits. There's loads of hilly countryside and the moor nearby, so it's perfect as a base for walking. Note that it's extremely rural - I had no phone signal whatsoever, whilst the wifi was understably a bit flaky.

Woul we stay again - Yes
A 2 night stay in Troytown room Very enjoyable. Evening meal was excellent but we felt breakfast was lacking in substance for us. The room although aged was clean, comfortable and quiet. We would have liked a kettle but Covid rules said no!! Staff were excellent. Would we stay again - yes
