Arrived very late but made welcome. Lots of parking opposite the hotel. Lovely room, nicely dressed spacious double with easy chairs, table with magazines, dressing table, tea/coffee tray, hair dryer. No fridge. Lovely large bathroom with proper bath and shower over. Lots of shelf space. No window in bathroom and automatic fan comes on with light but thankfully switched off when light switched off. Window in bedroom with view to side of hotel but can see the hills over the road
I stayed in room number 1 and I'd ask for this room again on a return visit. Unless tempted by the 4-poster room. Very quiet at night.
Breakfast is serve yourself cereal and juice then a full English breakfast is offered with toast, tea or cafetiere of coffee. Good quality sausage and bacon and made to order. No other breakfast choice other than full English.
There's an evening menu or the pub a short walk up the road. Secure storage for bikes if necessary. Staff helpful and friendly. I'd return here no problem. I'd give 5 stars but for no shower grab-rail, the dressing table mirror too high to use sitting down and a very little but tatty around some of the doors, skirting, handles and bath tiles. But I'm in no way bothered by this and I'd highly recommend this hotel and this particular bedroom.
