“Good break”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights. We used a voucher and that was fine but we definitely would not have paid £49 per person per night. The rooms are dated and the pod style bathroom is very small but it worked. The meals are expensive for what they are and there are better meals close by. It was a good base for our two days. Sunday breakfast was really good but the next days was noticeably different and not as nice. We found that the locals and staff were very friendly.

We booked as a family and further members and were happy with the experience as a whole. The breakfast was great and service excellent. Rooms were great although the 'pod' bathrooms were very small compared to the room size although functional.
There were a number of issues however with our KGB voucher deal which weren't dealt with very professionally and this was a bit of a letdown as was the surcharge of 30.00 on the bill on checking out for a child supplement which was all sorted out eventually before leaving.
As a base it was excellent with friendly patrons and a great atmosphere. Food was good pub grub but no more and we are still awaiting the glasses of wine owed as part of the deal! All in all though it was a great weekend away

This was a very awful experience. we had so looked forward to the visit and seeing the area it spoilt everything. We had room 5 which is what you get with all these DEALS it was dirty and had a small POD in the middle of the far wall of the room which was called the on suite. This had hairs from the previous occupier left in the extremely small area for the shower and wash basin. The toilet was so close to the door it was best to use it with the door open a little. Tried to up grade but this wasn't allowed although some rooms were available as they were still empty when we got up in the morning. We had booked and paid for two nights but it was so awful we only stayed the one night.
Positives were the breakfast which was excellent and so was the evening meal.
Will never use this place again. Use at your peril.

I stayed in room 4 on the 9th, 10th and 11th May 2014 to attend a family wedding nearby. I found the room to be clean, tidy and well-appointed. At a reasonable price, the room came with t.v. hairdryer, trouser press all of which worked perfectly.

The bathroom was small but I found it adequate and clean. I am a bit larger than average but fitted in o.k. The shower, toilet and washbasin were also in perfect working order and well provided with good quality handwash and bodywash/shampoo as well as a generous provision of clean towels.. I found this far better than having to go to a communal bathroom,

There was a good range of quality vegetarian food available and and the staff were friendly and efficient. The prices were very reasonable for the good standard of cuisine and service provided.

On the Sunday afternoon over twenty of my fellow wedding guests, staying at different hotels in the area, descended on the Bay Horse for Sunday lunch at only 45 minutes notice and the staff responded admirably to the satisfaction of all.

When I was daft enough to leave my housekeys in the room I phoned them and they promised to look for them straight away. A few minutes later they called back to tell they had found them and would post them to me the next morning. The keys arrived promptly.

All in all, I have found this to be a well-run and honest business that makes a point of giving its customers everything they pay for.

Many thanks to Hilda and her staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

Gordon Lumley.
