Came here 1 year ago after visiting Sheffield park, and it was the best Sunday roast I ever had. Now it's just lost all its character. When you first walk in (even on a Sunday when I went) the place was empty, with only one person talking, who turned out to be the manager. The place is a very old... More

This has to be the worst hotel I have EVER stayed at. At £100 for one night, it is also the most overpriced for just a bed. The price was meant to include full English breakfast, but this was not given. The "continental" breakfast was soggy toast, a mini box of cereal and a plain yoghurt from the tatty old... More

Stayed in a room with a four poster bed which was lovely. The bed was comfy, room was clean, albeit very dated, with a desk area. TV worked fine though the WIFI didn't work as room is on the top floor.

We stayed one night at this old pub/hotel. Our room lacked bedside tables and lamps. The towels were stained, the wifi was lacking in the room and the TV reception was poor. Furnishing is dated and our bathroom suit had seen better days. This place could do with new management and a refurbishment. Not value for money as we paid... More

The hotel is an "old English pub" as per the description it gives itself. So you don't really expect high quality as other accommodation classed as hotel.
