6/10 Good

Great location near an AONB, ideal for cyclists, walkers and anyone wanting to visit this beautiful part of the country. The landlord and friendly staff were the best part of the stay and although it had a limited menu the pub food and bar service was great. The Landlord did his best showing us to the room, which was very clean and a good size, whilst running the bar on his own; unfortunately the accommodation is clearly being updated and renovated and the work in places is average and unfinished. The main door to the room had a broken handle and only basic Yale lock to secure the door, whereas the en-suite had no lock or catch to keep the door closed. Bed was described as a king size, it wasn’t. Taking everything into consideration the stay was OK but overpriced for what we had.

Lovely rural stopover
Lovely rural stopover on our way to Scotland. We stayed in the Old Coach House which was clean and comfortable, and staff were friendly and helpful.

A good stroke of unexpected luck
Very prompt friendly and efficient book in even though staff were preparing for a busy night, room immaculate and clean all new bathroom. The drive to and from the hotel was breathtaking especially if you head for Carlisle like I did. Thanks for having me I hope to visit again. Best wishes Michael

8/10 Very good

Nice place to stay
Check-in is at 3pm, but the pub doesn't open until 5pm during the week. Phoned the number in the window and the landlord was with me in a few minutes, so no problem. Big car park and parked my bike round the back where the steps to the appt were. Nice small appt with single bed. Bathroom could do with a bit of TLC (I was nervous touching the shower curtain as it looked flimsy) and couldn't figure out the heating. Nice sofas and TV, fridge, microwave etc. Pretty quiet as well. Evening food was fine, and breakfast freshly cooked to set me up for the day. Would stop here again.

10/10 Exceptional

The room was newly built and there were touches of decorating in progress but it didn’t detract from the comfort and convenience of the amenities. Neat en suite walk in shower and convenient basin and loo. Really friendly and helpful owners and staff, excellent dinner and cooked breakfast. My wife wanted muesli and they apologised that they had none. By morning there was an open pack of Muesli on the table, someone had brought it from home!

Room for improvement
I do not like to give less than great reviews but this wasn't a great stay sadly. The living area had a mix of furniture in it so much so it was more like a store area. It gave it a less than homely feel. The bed was a low quality mattress and frame that squeaked. I arrived and there was no hot water which had been fixed but not checked which meant I had to sit and wait for an hour whilst it was sorted. There was room for improvement with cleaning and overall finish of fittings too. Overall, it just lacked care in my opinion which makes me so sad to say.
