It is hard to find the words to describe Inn on the moor. Having read previous reviews we were expecting the hotel to be a little bit run down, but full of character. What we found was a place so neglected and unloved it was heartbreaking. Our room was dirty, glasses in the bathroom, mirror, mouldy shower, mismatched furniture and cupboards with doors that didn't shut. The bed was very comfy though, and once we kicked the bedspread off the sheets were clean and soft. The place is understaffed, although the staff were very friendly although grossly unprofessional. The food at dinner was good, but breakfast very disappointing. My husband and I would always choose character over uniform chain hotels, and have stayed in countless places but have only felt the need to comment about this one. Don't stay here, for half the price you would still feel like it was expensive for what it offers. The location is stunning, but on walking round the village there are lots of other accommodation - so shop around.
