We stayed overnight with family to break up a journey. Initially I booked this hotel because it was dog friendly however in the end we left our dog with friends so could have stayed elsewhere, however we were fairly pleased with our choice.
Trip Advisor reviews gave this a high rating for food and were looking forward to eating here, however we didn't realise that on Sunday evenings the kitchen was closed, which rather ruined our plans. In fact we struggled to find anywhere in the vicinity which did serve food on Sunday evenings - although we did eventually find one about a 5 mile drive away. However the landlord very kindly offered to allow us to eat a take away in the restaurant and to provide plates and cutlery if we had been completely stuck.
Breakfast the next morning was very enjoyable, well cooked and served with a smile. We considered ourselves lucky to get it though as normally there is only a continental breakfast provided on Mondays (according to the website - as it was a bank holiday there was an exception made.
The room was quite basic but clean. The bed was comfortable, though the pillows were so flat you would scarcely be aware you were even using one - I do suggest some new pillows should be provided as soon as possible. The TV was a very old bulky one but worked well enough. The bathroom was looking very tired - rust marks around the plughole and a rather temperamental shower, no toiletries provided except some economy Tesco shower gel but the towels were nice and thick and good quality.
All in all a friendly place to stay for a short spell - probably enjoy it more when evening food is available, but I wouldn't make a point of seeking it out.
