Booked here because it said it was dog friendly and we were travelling with our two terriers and the professional photographs looked O.K. Don't believe them! New owners have taken over and have been there for 3 weeks but their answer to resurrecting this (what could be a great old coaching inn b & b) is to have live music nights on Fridays - the day of our arrival, the only saving grace is that nobody comes! The same lads loll in the bar and on Saturday morning an empty bottle of Jack Daniels and an empty coke bottle decked the car park. The broken glass from the fight last year still hasn't been mended - in fact there's more broken glass around than I've ever seen at any commercial establishment! The dogs still bark at the kennels next door, the old fashioned TVs still don't work, they still haven't cleaned the rooms or sorted the hot water, apart from a grim breakfast on bare, unlaid tables there is no food. I'm not convinced our sheets were clean, in fact I'd lay my life on the bottom pillowcases not having been changed (I wrapped my pillow in my own clean towel to have a chance of sleeping without heaving). The shower was so disgusting I couldn't bear to use it although my husband braved a lukewarm drip. The new owners may make a difference over time but not unless they've got a lot of experience of the hospitality industry and a spare £100k to spend .............. and I don't think they have.
