Booked a meal for 30 but got a table of 26, prawn cocktails had a lot of mayonnaise in it, the bread that come with it was the only thing that soaked up most of it and made it better. The other choice of starter was a soup which contained either the dogs hair in, or jakes (the very big...

Me & my friend arrived at 2pm on Friday the 16th of December 2016, we went in & walked around & rang the bell for over 20 mins when all of a sudden this man appeared with his flies open, dirty clothes & unbrushed hair. He showed us to our chalets that we're in the garden & left us. We...

When travelling around the country I always look for the combination of a good place, reasonably priced and a decent room. The dusthole promised to be just that. A king size en suite at £90 in a place boasting history and good food. We arrived late evening and were greeted by a nice and quirky place, we were taken to...

I stay here several times a year when visiting family and it never disappoints! The staff are so welcoming, the food is divine and, from someone who dislikes dogs, the dog is adorable! My rooms have always been clean, well themed and comfortable. As I'm sure others have said, location is not amazing but thats not the hotel's fault in...

We were upgraded to a suite but no dressing table and mirror, two in the bedroom but too high! The bathroom was large, lovely bath and shower but no shelf for toiletries and no door!! Lots of lovely pictures and lamps but so cluttered. The barmaid was very brusque, she was taking orders, serving drinks and food clearing tables, I...

My husband and I did an overnight stay here on our fleeting trip to England. We really enjoyed our stay here! The room had everything we needed, comfortable bed, ensuite, plus quirky extras like the staircase to nowhere in a cupboard! (used to go to upstairs) Tony is a great host, willing to have a chat and answer the many...

Poor decoration - very dusty - cracked sink - grotty shower - welcome to room 2 - Tony the landlord asked me " what do you expect in a building this age?" I expect the website to show true pictures of my room and the staff to be helpful - not a happy customer

This was a trip of two experiences, one awful and one very good. The awful is that it is in a state of disrepair, windows not shutting properly, poor finish as in bathroom door did not close plug sockets coming away from the wall. The owner did try and put this down to the charm of its age, however my...

Me and my husband stayed here as a last minute break, we loved our stay here! Food was great and the accommodation was amazing ( we stayed in one of the cabins). We will definitely be coming back again in the future. The only criticism I would give is that it could do with a tidy up in communal areas,...

Shelton mallet seems to be closed on a Sunday but found a pub serving food. Did not eat here. Stayed in a wood cabin. OK. Bed a bit hard and lighting not brilliant. Electric shower stuck on very hot with hardly any pressure. Breakfast good though.
