Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fantastic bedroom with lovely bathroom. Great location to drive into Ludlow and surrounding countryside. Though the staff provided a small jug of oat milk for us in the room, the restaurant and breakfast kitchen didn't have any the following morning. The 3a.m. fire alarm provided an interesting interlude, though morning staff did not seem to be aware of our overnight experience!

I booked an overnight stay & dinner for my mom as birthday treat to visit the distillery on site. I have to say overal I was very dissapointed with services provided and the customer service was non existent. I have tried raise this complaint with many members of staff and noone has bothered to contact me back. The first room we was given wasn't very clean and very cold. The heating wasn't sufficient for the room and the bed sheets had blood stains on, we was moved to another room which was much cleaner. The main issue was getting a knock the next morning by a very aggressive cleaner, arguing with us that "one room was hot one room was cold." Which in fact wasn't the truth, when we tried to explain the situation to her, she got very agitated with us. Proceeding to tell us that they renovating the place but only with cheap stuff and didnt do proper job. I do not expect this at all from staff at the clive arms, especially after paying £125 for room and spending over £80 in restaurant. Just be aware that you could get better experience staying in Travelodge down the road. I personally won't be staying or visiting the clive arms again as I notified a member of team on morning, said someone would call me, no-one did. I followed up with email and had no response. This is the worse customer experience I have ever experienced.

Stayed here over the weekend and have to say the place is lovely. We stayed in a room on a complex next to the farm shop and sandwich shop. The room was very clean and had everything in you needed for a relaxing stay. The food in the pub restaurant was of a high standard, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.The breakfast was served in the Farmshop restaurant and was amazing. This is a nice place, and if I was visiting Ludlow again I wouldn't hesitate in staying again.

Lovely hotel and restaurant. Very clean and all the facilities you would expect / need. The hand wash / shower gel etc were lovely. Comfy bed. Lovely staff. The only recommendation / suggestion I have is that fresh milk could be provided as there is a fridge already in the room. There is freshly ground coffee and tea leaves etc provided but no fresh milk. The room is also a little bit too bright in the night ( I think a curtain is needed for the small window instead of the blinds) and the emergency exit light is a little too bright ( but I do realise that is important too). Other than those very small issues it was a lovely stay, thank you. 5/5.

Room was a great size and really clean and nice. The food was good and sensibly priced. Nice bar area for a chill out. The best of all were the staff who were really friendly and attentive. We would happily go back soon and happily recommend them

We spent two nights here. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that this hotel was part of a larger farm complex owned by the Earl of Powis, which comprised a Farm Shop, an art gallery, an ice cream shop and a restaurant. We had a huge room upstairs with a well-appointed bathroom. The first night we ate in the hotel restaurant and enjoyed crab and spring onion croquettes to start accompanied by a glass of Champagne Veuve Lorinet NV, followed by ginger marinated cod fillet with a prawn spring roll, pak choy, sweetcorn and sugar snap peas, with a peanut butter and coconut dressing; and a beef burger on a brioche bun, with baby gem, tomato, smoked Applewood, bacon jam, fries, slaw and tomato and chili relish, accompanied by a bottle of Clos de la Roilette. The following night, we bought some charcuterie from the Farm Shop and enjoyed that in our room. The breakfasts on both mornings were terrific, serving very generous servings of pancakes with berries and poached eggs on sourdough toast. We had very friendly and excellent service.
