10/10 Exceptional

Lovely 17th century Hotel/pub
Very clean 17th Century Hotel. Staff very welcoming

8/10 Very good

Pleasant Stay whilst on Business
Small but lovely room with everything needed for a one night stay. It felt as though it had been recently refurbished and the cleaning was to a high standard. Check in was good and I was shown to my room although I did have to wait a short while as there is no front desk. The menu was impressive and my evening meal was very good. On the downside, it was quite noisy with the quiz night in the pub during the evening but this did end at 10pm to my relief. The breakfast was average and service was poor. The rain shower was non existent and the attachment was very slow and squealed whilst in use which made me conscious of disturbing other guests due to the lack of soundproofing as the building is very old.

5* could not fault!
Honestly can not fault this place. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. Staff were lovely and very friendly. Food was great. Room was clean and cosy. Nice quiet pub. Great value for money and definitely got our money's worth. Thanks for a great couple of days!

Stay here but eat out
Hotel was fine given Covid restrictions. Room was basic but clean. The bathroom was clean and well supplied but the extractor fan seemed not to work. I would recommend the hotel but the food in the restaurant was relatively expensive and not up to much
