“Genuine Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2012

We needed somewhere to stay whilst attending a wedding in the local area and found this accommodation attached to a pub. Room was basic but clean and had everything needed. Bed was comfortable and nice and quiet after a long day at the wedding. Breakfast in the pub next door was filling before setting off home. Later in the day after I had returned home, I received a call from the hotel advising me my husband had left some of his credit cards behind in the room. They promised to post them and would not accept any money for the postage. Wonderful service.

If you need a room in this town and are not particularly fussy this place is cheap and clean. I stayed here as I was going to a party and it was apparently the best on offer locally. We got a good rate. For your money you get a clean bed and towels. I also had a shower that was literally a drip. When I advised reception I was told there is a cord you should pull but I didn't see one and in the absence of a sign I had to drive home before having my shower. Breakfast was also basic, one coffe and a small plate of fried food with toast which sufficed. Noise in the room was quite bad. The fan from the bathroom next door could be clearly heard, the pub across the square had loud music until the small hours and there were a number of bangs and crashes. Mobile phone reception is bad in the area generally and there are no phones in the room so you may feel a little isolated! Staff were friendly although information was only given when direct questions were asked and the receipt promised after my telephone booking never materialised. I would not return.

Paid £50 for superkingsize bed and breakfast for one night. Why do people complain when it's so CHEAP? It looks like a garden shed from the outside and is small inside but it's in the centre of town! There was no hot water in the sink so husband boiled kettle to have cut throat razor shave-no problem. The blind wouldn't pull up with the cord so we did it manually-no problem. The front fell off the drawer but I pushed it back on again-no problem! In bed by 10 as daughters wedding next day. I am the lightest of sleepers. The outside lights shone through the blind and was woken by disco music in the distance but not so bad that I couldn't get back to sleep. What do people expect if you stay in a PUB?!! Shower was brilliant as was breakfast and very friendly, helpful staff.

Rooms at the back of the pub with small car park. On arrival they had changed my booking from a double to a twin downstairs with poor mobile signal. Could not give a VAT receipt. Can be noisy at weekends.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs

I`m not a fussy traveller so a dodgy review from me is unusual but
Maybe i timed this trip wrongly but sleep is important to me whilst travelling and i manged 3 hours on my stay.
The room although cleanish was more like a garden shed and had no soundproofing at all.
Noise from the pub was horrendous, after the music finished i had people in the room above banging around till 3 in the morning, sounded more like elephants than humans.
Would not stay again
