I recently had a three night stay in the Inn and it was an experience never to be repeated.
When I arrived I was shown to room 4 which looked to be very clean and tidy. I was aware that I had booked a single en suite and had booked it as it was close to where I needed to be and it was the only one available in the area. What I did not know was the room was extremely small, approx. 7 ft square and had two velux ceiling windows for natural light. The en suite shower room was equally small but provided a good supply of hot water. During my stay, the room was not cleaned, nor were the towels changed. My requests were unanswered, although my request for more tea bags and milk were.
I had read the information on the Inns website which did indeed mention 'noise from the bar can travel through the stone walls during opening hours'. On my first evening the live music (which was very good) started at 8pm and finished around 11pm which with the associated bar noise which followed the end of the music meant that sleep before 1am was impossible. The other two evenings followed the same pattern. An ear protector vending machine is handily located in the upstairs hallway for use by visitors.
I did not eat breakfast at the Inn due to their opening times, but can certainly agree with other reviewers that the food and beer served in the evenings was exceptionally good and varied.
In summary...if you want a good nights sleep, do not stay at The Village Inn, if, on the other hand you like your music so loud that it rocks your bedroom floor and vibrates through the toilet, this is the place to stay.
