We booked through "Booking.com" and on arrival had a bad feeling about the property, the general condition of the pub looked run down but as we had already guarenteed the room with a credit card went on in, cancellation fees are 100% up to a week from date of arrival.
The room smelled musty and the bed linen felt damp, breakfast was a small box of cereal and a plastic bagged croissant, we were informed that a cooked breakfast was available when the pub opened at 10am at extra cost.
As we were both tired from the Carfest event we tried to air the room wirh no luck, the wall heater did take the edge off the dampness by the morning.
The bathroom was a disaster, the mirror, towel ring and toilet paper holder were all only just holding on to the wall, both basin taps would not turn off and the top of the cold tap was broken. Behind the door was a hole where the door handle had smashed through the plasterboard, the bath had a shower screen with rust staining the bath and the general cleanliness of the bathroom and bedroom was well below are expectations.
We checked out at 10:20am and I attempted to give the key in at the bar, the pub door was still locked so I gave up and left it in the room, obviously the cooked breakfast was a non-starter.
Such a shame, a quiet location, large room with a lot of potential, £65 is way too much until the decor and dampness are rectified, and a proper breakfast should be offered in the price too.
