Property condition


  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Never again

Quirky, time warp or simply run down - you decide. The bar which included the lounge seating was closed. Drinks were supplied to rooms meaning no chance to chat with other guests - or be comfortable. Breakfast was good, evening meal was very odd with Michelin prices. Eat up the road! Easily walkable. Lovely dining room, but cold in February! I was not given the option to review my account, the extras had already been charged to my card. I did get a receipt emailed later.

Lovely peaceful location

Quiet and peaceful location but close to the M4 junction 16. You get a very friendly welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms could use a little updating but they are warm, good size and clean. Would thoroughly recommend.
