Lovely hotel
Hotel was lovely. The room was clean and comfortable. Food was very nice. Staff were very friendly and helpful, even advising on nearby places to visit and also how best to navigate the journey to our next stopover.

6/10 Good

Room was very dated and grubby. Probably dating back to 1950s. Cobwebs from light shade, bathroom toilet seat and tap broken. Soft worn beds. Very disappointing. Service in bar led a lot to be desired too. Would not recommend.

4/10 Fair

Disappointing, hot, smelly and noisy room
Easy parking at rear of hotel, check in polite and efficient despite having to wait for receptionist to complete a phone call. Room was very compact and extremely hot, smelly and noisy. We accept that the day was one of exceptional heat, however room 224 allocated over the hotel kitchen takes the heat and smell from the kitchen extraction. This together with their bins! No aircon or fan provided for room. Breakfast service was unfriendly and very slow. Selection of self service poor. Check out similarly. No pleasantries at all. As a side note - The Church Restaurant at the other end of the high street provided excellent service and food for dinner !
