5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Wanted to stay her for ages but could never get booked in. It was an experience due to the pub sposedly being haunted. We had the lady Catherine room. Vert dark ornate furniture which added to the eerie feel of the room. Didn’t see a ghost but felt a presence & didn’t sleep all night but loved it. Good friendly staff & excellent full English breakfast. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness
I chose this hotel because of the novelty factor, I wanted something a bit different. The hotel was very olde worldy which appealed to me, however, the room we stayed in had cobwebs on the light fixture and the cover on the four poster looked like it hadn’t seen a washer in months. The staff were pleasant enough but I don’t think the room justifies the price and wouldn’t choose to stay here again.
