Often room photos give a misleading idea of rooms.
This cannot be said of the Leicester Arms.
My room was beautifully decorated, all my needs were catered for. The bathroom is very classy with a powerful shower.
The bed was comfortable, though the pillows were not to my liking, I believe feather.
I had an ale on my check-in at around 2130 which was excellently served.

Beautiful old building in lovely village. Very nice room but 1/ there was serious sewage issue in bathroom 2/ no hot water at all in the morning due malfunctioning boiler and 3/ despite being the first to order at breakfast and telling the waitress we were in a real hurry, our breakfast took exactly half an hour to arrive - not acceptable. All in all a really disappointing stay.

The room was large and spacious and the bed comfortable but there is no where to put your toiletries/make up bag in the bathroom when using the mirror. There was no hot water in the morning!
