I booked through lastminute.com after reading five spot on reveiws on here. We were given a very warm welcome, the staff and locals were very friendly. We ignored the heavy metal music coming from the speakers in the garden and right outside the entrance door. We were keen to explore the local area as we had come to cycle in the Forest of Dean.
However, the longer we stayed the more we decided we probably wouldn't go back.
On the first night we ate in the pub; a beautiful building that has great potential. We ignored the tacky extras. The food was average, pub food and we decided to eat somewhere else on the second night. But again, the staff were friendly and welcoming. The room itself was clean, the ensuite however was shabby; dirty walls and broken bits and bobs And not clean where it was thought you couldn't see. Our room was not serviced as we had to ask for this to happen and hadn't had time to read the handbook...far to busy having a holiday.
On both evenings we were serenaded in our beds by a variety of music from the pub's duke box and the outdoor speakers until just after 11pm, this (after 11pm) included music like the Prodigy.
A lovely building, friendly staff, prime location with great views, but, they are just not quite getting it right.
