“First Class rooms and food but not very friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2009

We stayed at this B&B on our way to Cornwall. The accomodation was first class. The Quality of the room was fantastic. The room was so clean that it looked as if we were the first people to stay in it. Everything looked brand new and it was very modern. The breakfast was excellent with good quality food, we also had our dinner there the evening we arrived, and that was also very good (if a little pricey).
The B&B was £60 a night which was very good value. However all this was spoilt because of the unfriendly couple running the place. When we arrived the man who opened the door to us was not welcoming, the same man ( i think he was the owner) served us at breakfast, but did not ask us if everything was OK, if we wanted any more toast, had we enjoyed our stay..nothing! When I asked at dinner time if the sausages were from Somerset the lady owner said "Of Course" and looked down her nose at me. Again nobody asked if everything was OK. We passed the owner in the garden after dinner and she completely ignored us.
So to sum up.. a lovely place, spotless and modern. High class food, but unfriendly staff who couldn't be bothered to say "good morning" or "good evening" or ask if everything was OK.

A thatched pub in a quite village may not sound like a excellent place to stay but the rooms are top class, bathrooms first class with top of the range fittings, deep bath, great shower & very clean. Very comfortable bed & large flat screen tv with all freeview channels, Food is exellent with a choice of pub grub or top of the range meals, Drew & Paula are excellent hosts & will ensure your stay is comfortable. Great value.

  • Liked — Very clean a large room
  • Disliked — nothing
